Our warehouse operates from 10:00PM on Sunday through 11:00PM on Friday 24 Hours. We do not have a "cut-off" time for next day deliveries. Please fax or leave an order on the message machine after regular hours, we will pull and ship it the next business day on our trucks. Our phones are answered from 6:00AM to 5:30PM.
We operate (18) delivery trucks and cover most of Southern California daily. All our trucks are equipped with cell phones allowing instant communication with our office and each driver. Next-day delivery is our standard. However, if you need something mid-day, chances are we can get it to you in hours!
We also operate RouteView® on our trucks. Each truck is outfitted with a tracking unit, which conveys exact location information to a computer screen in our office. Our customer and supplier locations are programmed into the computer, and the system will instantly locate any address we request and display a map on the screen and which truck is closest. Allowing us to get our trucks where they are needed!
American Electric Supply, Inc. was founded in 1984 when its principle interests decided that the wholesale company they worked for did not provide the customer with all it should. They decided to strike out on their own and build a company that was customer-service oriented. With a handful of employees and salesmen, American Electric Supply, Inc. was born.
In the twenty years since its creation, American has grown to be a premiere provider of industrial and commercial electrical products in Southern California. With over seventy employees, a fleet of 18 trucks from pickups to 30' stake-beds and our excellent buying power, we can provide our customers with quality products for a competitive price and deliver it to their job site or shop within 1 or 2 days of placing the order.
Convenient Will-Call Location
We are located one block North of the 91 freeway, from the Maple St. exit, in Corona, offering easy access on/off the freeway.
Our will-call counter is open from 6:00AM to 5:3OPM (but emergency will-calls can be made anytime).
After-hours calls will be answered by an answering machine on which you will hear a message containing a pager #. This pager is always kept by one of our personnel with access to our warehouse. If your call is not an emergency, you may leave a message on the system, which will be answered first thing in the morning. If you need to place an order on the answering machine, it is our policy to get your order on one of our trucks going out in the morning.

We are centrally located in the "Greater L.A." market, enabling us to make daily will-calls at major electrical manufacturer’s distribution centers. We eliminate the wait for deliveries. Moving material rapidly is one of our top priorities.
