About

Electrical Design Technology, Inc. is a leading supplier of low, medium, and high voltage power distribution equipment since 1984. Our business mantra, “The Power of One”, provides our customers with a single source on engineering services, project management, and equipment acquisition including transformers, switchgear, motor-control centers, panelboards, equipment buildings, and instrumentation systems.

We provide excellent service to government, commercial, and industrial projects throughout North America and around the World. We excel in improving projects by working with consulting engineers in design and/or technical specification writing, as well as providing value engineering to our clients after the project is awarded. In addition to supplying equipment, our services include submittals, component lists, field coordination and testing, project management, and customer service to facilitate the integration of all equipment.

We connect with the most competitive and technically responsive companies for an overall comprehensive product and services project proposal. We are able to combine the material acquisition process, together with the engineering design of product and services, to complete the applicable plans and specifications. EDT has key strategic partnerships with U.S. and international manufacturers who deliver the highest quality and performance. Equipment provided is built to the user’s specifications, and delivered on time and on budget the first time. By coordinating the materials in-house ensures the best service and proper application of equipment.

Unlike distributors, manufacturers’ agents, or other suppliers, EDT holds a unique position in the field, as a Value-Added Partner in our customer’s projects. We are not bound by contractual obligations to our vendors which enables us the freedom to choose the highest quality and most appropriate equipment for each project, being unbiased in our choices.

Innovative products are only one part of this equation. Providing stellar customer service, in the form of technical consulting and support, is another integral part of the success of EDT. We are able to assist our clients directly and immediately, and are not dependent on the manufacturer’s service department. Our dedicated customer teams ensure that your project is supported throughout the project’s lifetime.
