Wesco marks a century of business
Wesco marked its 100th year on June 22, 2022 and the second anniversary of the completion of its merger with Anixter.
“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 CEO in a statement.
The company is also launching Wesco Cares, a new philanthropy program, with a US$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,” added Engel.
“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.”
