IEC Georgia’s New Partner Hagemeyer, Jump Starts Partnership with CEUs in Savannah

Hagemeyer North America operates globally with a level of commitment to be a quality distributor of commercial, residential, and industrial electrical products.  IEC is excited to expand an already beneficial relationship with Hagemeyer to include its Savannah location.  With many top contractors located in the Savannah area, this creates an opportunity to serve IEC members with access to a top distributor and vice versa.  First on the agenda is IEC’s Savannah Arc Flash/ NFPA 70E 4 hour continuing education training.  The new IEC partner will host the class on April 17th at its Savannah office; giving IEC members a perfect networking opportunity to introduce themselves to the new partner and gain CEUs.  You should be receiving your invite in the mail any day now if you haven’t already.
