After more than seventy-five years in the electrical supply business, Haines Sales has closed its doors, ending its tenure as one of the paramount electrical sales organizations in Upstate New York. Haines Sales was founded by Elmer Haines in 1938 to represent Federal Switch. His son Jerry, joined his father in 1954. Haines Sales went on to represent many highly valued lines such as Raco in 1969, Alcan in 1980, and Electri-Flex in 1986. Eric joined the team the same year the company began its representation of Electri-Flex, and twelve years later became president of Haines Sales in 1998.

Those in the industry found every individual at Haines Sales to have held themselves to the highest degree of integrity while actively pursuing every sales opportunity. The closing of Haines Sales will decidedly change the marketplace in the electrical industry in Upstate New York. We at Vertex understand that transition can be difficult, but with change comes opportunity.

We are pleased to announce that both Eric Haines and Kim Whipple have already begun their employment with Vertex and will quickly initiate the transition from their present location to our Syracuse headquarters. In addition, we are happy to introduce an addition to our Rochester office. Robert Scata comes to us with experience in engineering and sales as a regional manager.

Along with the additions to our sales force, we have added several substantial lines to our offering;

STABILOY is the number-one brand in aluminum wire. Whether it’s Utility Service Cables, SEU, SER, XHHW, USE, MC or Specialty Cable, STABILOY is the most specified, most recognized name in aluminum wire.

ELECTRI-FLEX not only makes flexible conduit and Liquatite conduit in contractor grades but is also widely known for flexible conduit that fills special needs for many unique industries. The Liquatite line includes nearly 40 varieties of electrical conduits for contractors, OEMs, industrial maintenance and repair (MRO), government, and utility uses.

HUBBELL ELECTRICAL PRODUCTS brings a tradition of superiority, breadth, value, and affordability within the RACO, WEIGMANN, BELL, TAYMAC, BRYANT, and KILLARK brands.
