WESCO International nyse|WCC is a holding company for WESCO Distribution, a multinational electronics distribution and services company based in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It has no relation to Wesco Financial Corporation.
In 1922 WESCO Distribution was formed as a spin-off of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation also based in Pittsburgh. It had existed for decades within Westinghouse as the subsidiary charged with selling and distributing company components in the electrical and industrial fields. Keeping close ties to its parent, WESCO prospered and grew its reputation as a trusted source of electronic and heavy industry products.
In 1994, the firm
Clayton, Dubilier & Rice(CD&R) arranged for the purchase of WESCO from Westinghouse by CDW Holdings. In 1998, WESCO acquired Brown Wholesale Electric and Avon Electrical Supplies.
CDW Holdings filed to take WESCO public in 1998, but instead sold it to a group backed by Cypress Group LLC. This group formed WESCO International, Inc., which is the current owner of WESCO Distribution.
On May 12, 1999, WESCO held its
initial public offeringon the New York Stock Exchange, selling 9.72 million shares for $18 per share, raising $175 million.
WESCO International is a multinational leader in distribution of time critical industrial components. It has over 350 full-service locations in five nations, including five high technology distribution centers. WESCO has more than 100,000 customers worldwide. The company had $3.7 billion in sales during 2004. The company is also a procurement specialist, providing supply chain cost relief and efficiency to organizations worldwide.
