About Us


GT Sales was founded in 1964 by Gordon Tyler. GT Sales represented manufacturers in the electrical supply side as well as the lighting side. The lighting side of the agency was spun off in the mid 1980s. Since that time, GT Sales has solely represented electrical lines, with a few exceptions: recently, several of our electrical manufacturers have added lighting products to their offerings.

New Owner



In May of 1997, Gordon Tyler sold the GT Sales Company to Daryl Cook. Gordon Tyler stayed on staff through the transition until fully retiring in December of 1998. GT Sales moved forward with the excellent foundation built by Gordon Tyler, but also with a newfound excitement exhibited by Daryl Cook.

New Location



GT Sales moved from its long-time location on Guest Avenue in Salt Lake City to its current location in West Valley City/Salt Lake City on Parkway Boulevard, and in 2003, Daryl Cook purchased the building. The move from Guest Avenue to Parkway Boulevard quadrupled our space from 5,000 sq. ft. to 20,000 sq. ft. This move and increase in space has allowed GT Sales to position itself well in the marketplace today.

GT Sales will continue to build our workforce in a careful and calculated way as we approach the future with cautious optimism. We gauge our success on market share, which can always be gained in any economy. GT Sales loves where we are, what we do, and how we do it.
