Customers in Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois will have another choice for purchasing all types of electrical supplies and related tools with the opening of Holt Electrical Supplies. Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place, Ltd., who handled the lease transaction, confirmed the St. Louis based company will open a branch facility at 2002 N. Kingshighway within the next few months. Kelsey said the 10,000 square foot building formerly was the long-time location of Dokata Electric, who closed late last year.
Holt Electrical Supplies is a family owned full-line electrical distributor that’s been serving the industry since 1960. The company presently has five branches in Missouri and over 7 million dollars in inventory handling residential, commercial, and industrial electrical products. The Cape location will be their sixth location. Other locations in Missouri include St. Louis, O’Fallon, Fenton, Washington and Arnold. Kelsey said he understood the new Cape location building will be completely remodeled before a spring opening.
