Connecting products and vehicle manufacturers since 1995.
We are a sales and distribution firm representing electrical component suppliers to U.S. vehicle and equipment manufacturers located in a 14-state region. With a dedicated team of 5 outside sales managers and with the support of a knowledgeable inside sales staff, we represent 7 suppliers and service more than 100 active client companies.
We represent highly engineered products to vehicle manufacturers from recreational to heavy-duty. Our clients include Airstream, Volvo Construction Equipment, Blue Bird Body Co., and Club Car, to name a few. Our products include headlamps, work lamps, relays and time delays, solenoids, ignition switches, joystick controls, linear and rotary transducers, polyurethane molded products, wire harnesses and instrument panels.
We began in 1995, as an Independent Sales Representative firm in Michigan representing electrical component suppliers, most notably Hella Corporation in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and in Western Pennsylvania.
In 1997 we opened a 2,500 sq. ft. distribution warehouse in Elkhart, Indiana to distribute products for both Hella Corporation and Cole Hersee, changing the company’s direction to a Rep-Distributor. In addition to representing product lines, we purchase and stock select 12 Volt electrical items for sale to client companies, improving turnaround time while providing value-added services.
We expanded operations in 1998 by opening a Georgia sales office to better serve the southeast United States.
We moved into a 6,000 sq. ft Georgia warehouse in 2001 to offer complete services to clients who prefer the convenience of purchasing directly from a Rep-Distributor.
In 2005 we began importing products from a number of European companies serving the motor home industry and now offer our clients a host of exquisitely designed, quality products otherwise unavailable in the U.S.
In 2007 we consolidated the Elkhart distribution center into a new 10,000 sq. ft corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, GA. S. Sterling Co. is recognized for its extensive product lines, commitment to service, and application expertise of electrical components for our vehicle and equipment manufacturing customers.
