First Nations Capacity Fund
EECOL Electric is a proud to be one of three companies to have founded the First Nations Capacity Fund (FNCF). The First Nations Capacity Fund is a non-profit group that creates training and career opportunities for indigenous people in an area of their choosing. They also work with communities to help maximize their economic development within their area.
In recent years FNCF has had the opportunity to offer many different courses and classes to indigenous communities. In 2018 they organized an event with the Nicola Band, Riverside Energy systems and Nicola Valley Institute of Technology (NVIT) to offer an introductory training program for grid connected solar PV systems. The goal of this program was to give people the opportunity to learn more about renewable energy while also giving them the hands-on experience to test it out for themselves.
Our leadership at EECOL believes in the need to constantly adapt and evolve in ever changing times to deliver value. With that in mind, EECOL put a business transformation strategy in place to become the leading brand in the electrical community to deliver a fully digitalized as well as consistent customer experience across all channels that our customers interact with us in. Innovation is at the forefront of everything we do, challenging the status quo constantly.
For over 100 years we have worked within the electrical community, offering access to end-to-end inventory of quality brand-named manufacturers for your electrical needs. EECOL Electric was founded as the Electrical Equipment Company in 1919 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in 1919 by John McAdam Sharpe. In the early days, EECOL's stock consisted of Delco light plants and radios and has since evolved to one of Canada's largest electrical distributors with end-to-end inventory for electrical products. We were the first Canadian distributor to open a dedicated industrial sales department to service an area where more expertise was required. Since then, we have built upon our success by staying true to our core values of pursuing excellence, investing in our employees, building trust, and giving back.
"We know that offering an extensive product selection combined with knowledgeable staff and excellent customer service has long been the key to our success, and we will add these values digitally to support your business not only in store, but also online. We take pride in offering proactive, competent, and unparalleled solutions and supporting the communities we work and live in. You are the foundation of our business and our top priority, and we will work diligently to ensure your needs are not only met but exceeded. These are exciting times for EECOL Electric; transforming into a digital leader in the electrical products and services marketplace, providing the resources and the ease of ordering material anywhere at any time, and offering new solutions to advance and grow your businesses to new levels"
