Dear Mrs. Cohen

I would like to provide you some information about a previous position I held with Platt Electric Supply.

This promise guarantees Platt customers a reliable supply of inventory from distribution center to store location on a daily basis. Platt distribution centers also offer custom wire cuts for their customers’ convenience. Platt Electric customers can pull from over 300 vendors and 50,000 different items in stock at a Platt warehouse.
