ABOUT UNITED UTILITY SUPPLY
Recognized as one of the leading material supply organizations serving the rural electric market, United Utility Supply is owned by member cooperatives in 17 states. As a full line stocking distributor, UUS supplies a complete line of materials critical to the electric utility industry, including transformers, conductor, pole line hardware, lighting, underground accessories, grounding equipment, guying, insulators, protective equipment, distribution and transmission poles, utility tools, safety supplies and more.
The mission of UUS is to emphasize quality products and superior service while establishing long-term partnerships with our customers based on cooperative principles.
Kentucky’s electric cooperatives were created during the 1930s to bring electrical power to rural Kentucky when no one else would. Owned by the consumer-members they serve, electric cooperatives are known for their responsiveness, can-do attitude and outstanding customer service.
When UUS was established in January 1960 as an arm of Kentucky’s statewide electric cooperative association, the same values held true. Through the decades, UUS has earned a reputation for reliability, responsiveness and first-in-class customer service.
Originally known as Statewide RECC, the organization expanded into Tennessee in 1968 and Pennsylvania in 1973, changed its name to United Utility Supply in 1974, expanded into Illinois in 1976 and moved its Tennessee operation to Alabama in 1977. Today, UUS boasts six strategically located warehouses that serve 17 states, offering dedicated storm inventory and 24/7 response.
Headquartered in Louisville Kentucky, the Cooperative Distribution Center (CDC) is located within a 1-2 day delivery area of almost half of the U.S. population.
Five additional UUS warehouses, located in Alabama, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, stocks transformers, conductors and utility grade pole line hardware. Our long-term partner agreements with major utility pole manufacturers complement UUS service. We are here to help—and we reliably deliver on that promise.
