ST. LOUIS — Graybar, a distributor of electrical, communications and data networking products and provider of related supply chain management and logistics services, reported record net sales for the third quarter on Wednesday.

Following record net sales in the first two quarters of the year, Graybar achieved a third quarter net sales record of $1.6 billion, a 0.9 percent increase compared to the same period last year.
