According to National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) data, the typical electrical contractor’s revenues break down like this:
Cost of materials = 34%
Subcontracting = 4%
Direct job expenses (overhead) = 17%
As shown in the graph, material and labor costs have the greatest impact on your profitability.
It’s estimated that approximately 40% of the total labor cost can be attributed to material handling: receiving, unpacking, storing, assembling, ordering, returning, moving or locating.

“We have used conexes provided by Springfield Electric for our last three large projects. Our Springfield Electric sales person inventories product each week and talks to project managers about what materials we need for the coming weeks. This keeps our materials organized and ensures that we have what we need on hand.”
