The New Candela

Candela has undergone a sea change in management, philosophy and systems. Much of the change has seen us go back to what worked in the past in order to provide you with the best service we know how to deliver. The resulting benefits to you are numerous and documented on this page.

Many of our customers have experienced issues and delays while transacting with us as we migrated many different systems all at once. We feel safe to say that at the point we have worked out all major issues and that now it is time to let you know what we have to offer you going forward.

Candela primarily exists to serve wholesale buyers. Shopping cart websites aren’t a good fit for this group, and so we disbanded ours. We have replaced the cart with a product search tool to assist in helping you find what they are looking for during the process of quoting and ordering with us.

Ownership and Executive Team

Candela began its third generation of family ownership at the beginning of 2020 under which it strives to continue serving the Electrical Wholesale industry and beyond.

Remote Work

In addition to the changes in ownership and management, Candela has facilitated the transition of employees to remote work. Having had our east coast sales team working remotely for many years, we were well positioned to scale up remote work company-wide.

We hope this list of improvements inspires your confidence in us to serve you and your business needs.
