About Electrical Manufacturers Credit Bureau (EMCB)

EMCB is the oldest privately held company in the United States providing credit services to the business community. Since 1948, the Electrical Manufacturers Credit Bureau (EMCB) has supplied credit reports on wholesalers and distributors to electrical and lighting manufacturers throughout the United States and Canada.

Today, EMCB provides members access to industry-specific credit reports and has established the largest network of electrical manufacturers reporting through its Flash Inquiries and Flash Alerts system. These services allow members to request and submit information on accounts, and provide a secure online system for industry peers to communicate and share knowledge.

The company has responded to the needs of its members that sell outside of the distributor database, with a Multi-bureau Credit Report. These enable members to plug into EMCB's data partners' databases for banking data and public records, which include bankruptcies, judgments, liens, and UCC filings, all scored and blended into one rich report.

Upholding the tradition started in 1948, our company's mission is to deliver the highest quality industry-specific credit products and services to you, our valued customers and members. Much has changed since 1948 of course, so we now use technology instead of telephones to gather credit information, but the commitment to value remains the same.
