VANTAGE GROUP® is Everywhere

VANTAGE GROUP® has 800 locations in North America! That means wherever your facilities are, we’re likely to have a stocking branch close by. While many of your facilities may be located in remote areas, most electrical distributor chains are found only in major metropolitan areas. VANTAGE GROUP® is different. You will find us in towns like Keokuk, Iowa; Mineral Wells, Texas; and Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada, sometimes more than once. And if your company has facilities outside of North America, VANTAGE GROUP® is your only global solution. In conjunction with owning member, Rexel Inc., VANTAGE GROUP® has over 2000 international locations in 32 countries around the world.

Local Market Strength

Not only will we have a branch near you, we will also have a high quality branch that is a leader in the local market. Due to our makeup, our branches are closer to the local market, as well as your facilities. You will be served by market leaders who understand the history and nuances of your area, not remote branches or non-stocking sales offices.

Whether you need fittings, cable, PLC’s, or any other electrical product, VANTAGE GROUP® not only has the experience selling the product line you prefer, but also has a direct relationship with the manufacturer.
