WE'VE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK A FEW TIMES!

Southern Electronics Supply was founded in 1932 as Southern Radio Supply by Alfons Schadler, a German immigrant with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He was forced into making this move because of losing his job during the Great Depression. The company has grown over the years into one of the most successful regional distributors in North America! Along the way, we've amassed a great group of people dedicated to bringing to you New Millennium Distribution with the experience and personal attention that is hard to find today.

CALL SOUTHERN WHEN YOU NEED IT FAST!

We stock over 70,000 different items from hundreds of leading manufacturers. Stock and price checks can be made immediately thanks to our on-line order processing system. Our Distribution Centers located in New Orleans, Dallas, Baton Rouge, and Memphis total almost 100,000 square feet. Our EXPRESS delivery service guarantees most orders to be shipped the same day, which means most deliveries are by UPS or our local trucks within 24 hours. Emergency deliveries are also possible, including hot shot and next flight out services. One call and your order can be on its way!

EXPRESS PICK-UP COUNTER

You can pick up your order the same day--just phone it in ahead and it will be waiting for you at the Express Pick Up Counter of our nearest Distribution Center.

OUR PEOPLE REALLY KNOW THEIR STUFF!

Our inside sales team is simply the best in the business. Some of them have more than 30 years of industry experience. Continuous training insures that our product specialists will understand your application and assist you in your purchase. Our extensive outside sales team consists of engineers and product specialists to provide technical support before and after the sale, as well as contract negotiations and account maintenance.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION IS PRIORITY #1!

At Southern, we think of our customer relationship as a partnership in which communication is vital. Just let us know your delivery and pricing requirements. We can help with product sourcing or use our Scheduled Order Management System which allows for shipment of items as you need them. By knowing what you need and when you need it, we can assure world class, error free delivery ON TIME, EVERY TIME! That's the Southern advantage. No other distributor has it! And we're always working to improve our service through a Quality Assurance Program. Every Southern employee is striving to give you quality, error free service, every time!

THE DIFFERENCE IN DISTRIBUTION!

All of us here at Southern appreciate your giving us a chance to earn your business. We hope that as you take time to review our line card, it will become obvious why so many companies rely on Southern as their primary source for electronic and electrical supplies. And while our product list is impressive, that alone doesn't make a company successful...People do! As you have a chance to do business with Southern, one thing will become apparent. We try harder! When you call, you'll find that we work hard to do things the way you need them done instead of being rigid in our policies. For instance, if you call today placing an order, we process and ship ALL orders right up until UPS pick-up. We don't have a UPS Cut Off Time.
