ST. LOUIS, MO. — HOLT Electrical Supply, Inc. hosted Dirk Beveridge and his We Supply America tour on July 21. As a part of his statewide tour across the country, Beveridge spoke with HOLT’s staff and management about HOLT’s critical role as suppliers and middle-men in the trades. 

“While the world shut down during COVID, our partners and clients were more in demand than ever,” said Ryan Holtzman, HOLT CEO. “We had to find a very careful balance of keeping the staff safe while responding to the overwhelming supply needs of our customers. Having Dirk stop by and recognize that put a smile on everyone’s face.”

Dirk toured the facility and even spent time sharing some BBQ and conversation throughout the rest of the afternoon. 

Beveridge’s We Supply America tour is a documented, televised tour of distributors and middle-men companies like HOLT. His mission is to bring more focus and attention to “independent and entrepreneurial businesses committed to their employees, customers, and communities – those who touch every aspect of society while supporting every town across America.”

“At HOLT, we’ve always agreed that distribution is a noble calling,” Holtzman continued. “But to have someone else say that, and to have our industry documented and presented in such a world-class way while also discussing the very human side of it? This feels historic to me.”
