Next-Day Delivery/Same-Day Pick-Up


Buckles-Smith has the largest distribution center in Northern California stocked with electrical supplies focused on the needs of the industrial and facilities MRO customer.

We have local Service Centers throughout Northern California for Same Day Pick-Up and Will Call: Santa Clara, Concord, Palo Alto, Sacramento, Salinas, San Leandro, and Santa Rosa.

Buckles-Smith did an initial (inventory) study and determined what low- and high-volume parts were needed, and how often they were used. Right away we saw an immediate savings in inventory spending, which reduced our exposure. Overall, I'd say they have saved us more than 25% in inventory costs.
