In an era where manufacturers are willing to sell through anyone, Eclipse Tools believes that electrical professionals should purchase professional tools from professionals which is why it has committed to sell its quality tools nationally only through electrical distributors.
Established in 1997, Eclipse Tools initially served the electronics, data comm, low voltage and electrical markets as the exclusive reseller of Pro’sKit 2,000+ products in over 20 product categories of tools and accessories to provide high quality, professional grade tools to contractors at affordable prices. The product range spanned from power tools to crimpers and test equipment.
Five years ago, Eclipse Tools expanded its product offering and combined exclusive products with its Pro’sKit offering to bring a high quality, cost-effective offering to electrical distributors.
And the business has grown significantly.
Seeing that many brand name manufacturers were becoming indifferent to supporting the electrical channel as they sought to embrace big boxes and online sellers such as Amazon, Roger Scott, president of Eclipse Tools, decided that electrical professionals, electricians, deserved the support of individuals committed to supporting them … electrical distributors. For this reason he decided to make Eclipse’s electrical tools only available through electrical distributors … at their counters, in their warehouses and on their websites.
Said Scott, “In looking at the growth we’ve had in the electrical channel I felt it was important for us to focus our efforts. By concentrating on electrical distributors and partnering with the channel as our exclusive channel for our electrical products, we can focus our energies and ensure that our quality products reach electricians that value quality products and value quality support. For this reason, we’ve recently redesigned our websites and product catalogs. Electrical contractors who go to www.eclipsetools.com now have the option of choosing Eclipse’s electrical site, www.electricaleclipse.com to view our offering or our non-electrical site, www.totaleclipse4u.com for their non-electrical needs such as electronics or datacom tools.
Our goal is to provide electrical contractors with quality products at a fair price. We invest in our distributors, not in lots of fancy merchandising and marketing. I’ve always believed that if a contractor experiences our Eclipse tools they’ll see the difference.”
Visitors to www.electricaleclipse.com will see the company’s sixteen product categories dedicated to serving electrical contractors. The product offering includes crimping, cutting and stripping products; pliers, screwdrivers, hole making and test and measurement equipment; and installation tools such as fish tapes and push / pull rods, storage devices and job-site lighting to name a few.
The company has invested in a new website, a new catalog, and has a network of electrical manufacturers sales representatives around the country that can answer any contractor’s questions.
