R&M Electric, Inc.

They are not like the big chain suppliers; they are an Independent that knows the value of getting to know you on a personal level as well as a professional one. They have an experienced counter sales team that is familiar with all aspects of the Electrical field. Their sales force is the best Nashville has to offer. They can take any size project from quotation to final installation by the Electrical contractor with fewer problems than anyone I have ever dealt with. For your best experience ever from a supplier I highly recommend Williams Electric Supply.

Thank you very much for going above and beyond. We had a unit down and we ordered fuses from Williams.  We needed the fuses very quickly and they were not to be found in town.  You had them shipped into me the same day from your vendor and hand-delivered them to us on site and we were able to complete the repair.  Thank you, Williams, for going above and beyond to help us take care of our customers.  We consider you a great partner.
