Electrical, communications and data networking products distributor Graybar this month hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at its new branch in Tucson, Arizona, the first facility in the company's history built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) specifications.

The 55,000 square-foot facility features many of the green technologies Graybar distributes to its customers, including solar panels, energy-efficient lighting and electric vehicle charging stations. Located at 3760 East Tennessee Street in Tucson, the branch will serve the city's metropolitan area and southern Arizona. Branch manager Steve Gosciminski will lead the location’s 33 employees.
