ABOUT

Purser, London and Edwards was founded in April of 1910 by John Purser, John London, and William Edwards. By 1986, the then current shareholders thought it best to shorten the corporation name to PL&E Sales, Inc. since the old name sounded like a law firm.  You don't want to sound like a law firm calling on potential clientele.  Over the years, PL&E Sales has represented many companies in the construction and industrial fields from mechanical to electrical to automation suppliers. 

 

Any rep firm can gather lines and sell but what happens when something inevitably happens? 

 

We pride ourselves on being able to answer the technical questions and be on site for our customers and manufacturers to act as the true field sales office in the Carolinas.

Today at PL&E Sales; we continue to have succession plans in place to make sure that our company and the manufacturers we represent are in a better place as we move forward into a new electrical energy grid landscape.
