Summary

Wanting to enter the U.S. market, one of the largest retailers in the world announced its plan to open more than 200 neighborhood-style grocery stores in the U.S. Anixter, the network integrator and the local installer, Choice Electrical Construction, worked together to specify and deliver the bill of materials for each store. Because each store worked off the same basic premise, Anixter sourced and procured products to keep in its inventory, making sure the right quantity of materials arrived on time to each location.
