Wesco Celebrates 100th Anniversary

PITTSBURGH, June 22, 2022 — Wesco is commemorating its 100th year on this day, the second anniversary of its transformational combination with Anixter, and honoring all the entities that have joined forces to form the new Wesco.

“Very few companies enjoy such longevity and success. Wesco, from the beginning has been a leader in our industry, acquiring and developing capabilities along the way. Our ability to create value for our stakeholders by combining strengths is in our DNA,” said John Engel, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

The company is also launching Wesco Cares, its new corporate philanthropy program, by making a $5M commitment to community partners.

“Serving our communities is an essential part of who we are today and is a shared value among all subsidiaries and legacy companies. Wesco Cares provides for corporate charitable donations, employee volunteerism, and employee gift-matching. Beginning next year, June 22 will become an annual day of caring for Wesco employees globally,” Engel said.

“Our mission is to build, connect, power and protect our world. Reaching out to our communities, many of which continue to struggle in the face of significant challenges, is a fitting way to celebrate the history and longevity of our company,” Engel said.
