On the 28 of February 1977 the doors of P&R Electrical Wholesalers were opened. It was decided from the onset that P&R’s focus would be on customer service, a philosophy still maintained and one which has influenced the development of every component in the business to this day. Innovative service concepts such as weekend trading and large warehouse facilities offer customers the convenience of a “drive thru” service, setting P&R apart from its competitors.
In just two decades P&R was taken from a humble single store operation in Adelaide to one of the largest independent electrical wholesale networks in the country.
In July, 1997 George Pappas and George Rhigas, founders of P&R Electrical Wholesalers decided that the time was right to hand over the reigns of their business to the next generation of P&R, their sons.
Today P&R has an extensive branch network across South Australia. The warehousing and distribution of electrical product represents the core of P&R’s activities. With over 30,000 products on offer the business has expanded into many diverse commercial areas and continues to develop its resources to best service these and future markets.
