About Horizon Solutions – we have local roots that trace back to a variety of prestigious companies. Horizon Solutions LLC was formed on May 1, 2000 through the merger of Holmes Electric Supply Company of Portland, ME, Oakes Electric of Holyoke, MA, and RERO Distribution of Rochester, NY.

Today, Horizon Solutions LLC is a wholesale distributor of electrical and industrial products in upstate New York and northern New England, serving industrial, commercial and institutional customers since 1857. In addition to hard-goods distribution, Horizon Solutions offers services designed to identify and deliver solutions which fuel our customers’ success through improved productivity, safety and efficiency. Horizon Solutions is defined by our ability to understand customer applications and apply current technology to solve problems. Leveraging our expertise in technology, supply chain, and training and education, we provide our customers with total solutions which utilize products from the best manufacturers in the automation, electrical and industrial arena.

Horizon Solutions employs inside and outside sales professionals, technical specialists and customer service experts to provide the best customer experience for every transaction. Customer intimacy, deep knowledge and close relationships, and high-touch interactions characterize our heritage and “corporate DNA.” Over recent years we have successfully invested in technologies to reduce transaction costs and improve operations to drive our growth. Simultaneously we have created a culture and processes around a more disciplined selling approach to preserve the best practices of that heritage while adapting to the dynamic demands of our customers and the marketplace.
