News from our Members

QED-Logo-Large QED has launched a new and revolutionary donation program that will bestow a percentage of the company’s quarterly sales to IECRM! You may recall hearing about a donation of over $4000, which was announced by IECRM at the 8th Annual Summit Awards in April. That was the first-ever donation from this program!

Best of all, YOUR COMPANY can contribute directly to this donation by continuing to purchase from any QED location! At the end of each quarter, QED will calculate a percentage of the total sales generated by IECRM member companies, and donate it to IECRM. The donation funds will be used by IECRM to recruit more students to begin a career in the electrical industry.
