History

In 2013, we started operating under the name Axis Sales and Marketing which began by representing a select few lighting manufacturers.  After 1 year of a successful start, Axis Sales and Marketing and S&D Electrical Group merged together to strengthen our position in Atlantic Canada. 

In 2017, as Axis Sales and Marketing grew over the last four years and started to take substantial market share in Atlantic Canada, we became noticeable to a larger company with a similar name in Canada.  Due to the costs associated with going down the path of keeping our name, we felt it best to change our name to Next Sales and Marketing; after all, we feel it is not the name of our company which has made us successful, it is our dedication to our customers, our representation of leading edge manufacturers, and our outstanding, hardworking team.

Next represents the next chapter as we evolve.  We welcome our name change as it represents our company as the next generation, and our forward motion in an ever changing industry.
