In 1948, J.P Butler and Marie Butler opened the first of our supply and lighting showrooms in the small town of Whiteville, North Carolina. Their business philosophy grew from the warm and welcoming sense of southern hospitality that the South has become known for.
More than sixty years later Butler's Electric Supply has grown to include several locations throughout the Carolinas.
When you shop with Butler's Electric Supply you know that your order is backed by the Butler family name. As those who have done business with us before will tell you, that means the highest level of service and quality.
Anyone who’s been in and around the Wilmington area has heard of Butler’s Electric Supply. After all, the business has a decades-long history in the Cape Fear region. Since 1969, the local store has been in the same site, but has expanded four times. The latest expansion took place three years ago and now the once modest-sized building has the largest lighting showroom and most impressive inventory in the area. Butler’s Electric has more than 2,000 fixtures on display at 2013 Castle St., a fleet of six trucks ready to make deliveries, a knowledgeable and friendly staff as well as a full service electrical counter with over 100 years of experience to help with any of your electrical needs.
Mr. Butler and his son have launched two other websites,discountlightingsale.com which showcases the lighting inventory they have available for online sales for North America and butler.lighting which is for the local area in and around Wilmington. So far, more than 300,000 pieces are online. The idea is not only for customer convenience, but also as a tool for builders, architects, designers and homeowners who want to share photos and ideas for their projects.
