As part of its strategy to focus on key global industries, IBS has appointed Davide Spada as Vice President of electrical wholesale industry.

Spada comments, IBS is focusing on the global market for electrical product distribution to the construction, electronics manufacturing and utilities markets. Companies that distribute cables, switches, lights and other electrical products have their own particular business issues for which IBS can provide a comprehensive and dedicated solution.

IBS has a solution that has been developed in conjunction with distributors in the market to ensure it meets the specific needs of the industry. In addition, IBS consultants are experienced in this market and have a real understanding of the issues and challenges facing electrical product distributors.

It also provides pricing, forecasting and product information that interacts with e-commerce technology.
