About Hagemeyer North America

Hagemeyer North America (HNA) gets a charge out of spreading things around. The company -- a subsidiary of French distribution giant Sonepar's US subsidiary, Sonepar Management US -- distributes electrical, industrial, safety and other maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) products from about 70 locations across North America and over the Web. It also performs instrumentation repair and calibration, hydrostatic testing, air sampling, lighting design, and various other services. Companies such as 3M, DuPont, Philips, Cardiac Science, and more supply products to electrical contractors and other customers in industries that include government, metals, transportation, pharmaceuticals, and utilities.

Hagemeyer North America's Technical Services unit focuses on emergency service equipment (fire, safety, respiratory, and instrumentation), offering repairs, rentals, and training through about 40 service centers and more than 75 mobile units. Within that unit are the Hagemeyer Life Safety Systems group (serving the petrochemical and refining, pulp and paper, and mining industries along the Gulf Coast) and Hagemeyer Knowledge Systems  (worldwide environmental, industrial hygiene, and safety consulting and training). Hagemeyer North America also offers inventory management through soneSource

HNA's former Netherlands-based parent Hagemeyer had initially been the center of a bidding war between rivals Sonepar and fellow distributor Rexel in 2008. After Sonepar made an unsolicited bid for Hagemeyer and was rejected, Rexel made a bid that was also rejected. In the end, Hagemeyer went with Dutch firm Rexel's bid of over $4.5 billion; Rexel promised ahead of time to sell Hagemeyer's North American and Asia/Pacific operations to its rival to avoid a bidding war. Sonepar then took Hagemeyer operations in North America and folded into them its own operations, setting up Hagemeyer North America, Sonepar Canada, and Sonepar Mexico.

Office Supervisor, Bluffton, SC - July 6, 2015
This is a fast pace and customer orientated environment. The customers are electricians, builders, contractors or transient showroom clients that are upgrading light fixtures in their home or businesses.

Co-workers are exceptional. The hardest part of the job is not being paid my worth for the dedication and commitment that I have showered the company with.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working to serving the customers and getting that feeling of satisfaction when you produce and provide services on-time that only makes their job easier in providing good service by getting the materials they need to complete their contracted service that their clients expect them to fulfill.
