Warshauer Electric Supply recently announced that it has acquired Broadway Electric Supply (BESCO) in Woodbury, N.J. The acquisition will expand Warshaur’s footprint in southwest New Jersey.
Founded in 1954 by Martin Warshauer, Warshauer Electric is a family-owned business currently run by Martin’s son, Jim. With over 65 years of experience as an electrical wholesaler, Warshauer Electric is one of the largest independently owned electrical distributors in the country. As a full-service supply house, Warshauer boasts more in-house services under one roof than any other electrical wholesaler in the state. Additionally, our Warshauer Tech and Trade schools are industry leaders in education; training licensed electrical contractors, aspiring electricians, and interior designers through our various certifications and accreditations with the NJ State Board of Examiners, ASID-NJ, and NJ Department of Labor.
Jim Warshauer, President, recently commented, “For over 65 years Warshauer has seen tremendous growth; usually outpacing industry averages. We have always been proud that our development has been organic and not through acquisition. However, in today’s fluctuating economic climate coupled with the state of the electrical wholesaling landscape, this acquisition ensures future growth for Warshauer Electric Supply. Broadway, a family-owned business noted for excellent customer service across many different vertical markets, is the perfect addition. We are really excited about working with the entire Broadway Electric Supply team!”
Broadway Electric Supply has been a fixture in the South Jersey area for the past 50 years. As a staple for southern New Jersey’s electrical needs, their sales expertise, quality service, and family values exemplify and perfectly align with the Warshauer philosophy.
The Broadway Management team stated, “After serving the community and our customers for over 50 years, the time has come to pass the baton onto the fine people at Warshauer Electric. Warshauer, in business for over 65 years, shares the same customer-focused, service-oriented philosophy you have experienced from all of us at BESCO. We are confident Warshauer will meet and exceed all your expectations well into the future!”
With five convenient distribution locations throughout New Jersey (Parsippany, New Brunswick (3.3125% Sales Tax), Tinton Falls (HQ), Lakewood (3.3125% Sales Tax), and now Woodbury), Warshauer Electric Supply offers free delivery to any jobsite in the state and promises exceptional fill rates at very competitive price levels. Our sales philosophy is simple: combine value-added solutions with unmatched levels of expertise.
