Wesco Electrical attributes its success to its quality service, large range of stock and technical expertise. The majority of its experienced staff have over 20 years’ service with the company, and this deep industry knowledge is a key factor in the business’s success. The company is solely owned by Jimmy and Sheila Owens. Commenting on the 50th anniversary milestone, Jimmy enthused: “50 years is a long time to be in business but really it seems like only a year ago since Wesco Electrical Ltd, or as it was known then, Wholesale Electrical Supply Co. opened its doors in the Fair Green, Drogheda.
“Throughout those 50 years there have been many ups and downs but without the support of our staff, customers and suppliers it would not have been possible to survive each of those challenges. I would like to thank all of them, past and present, for their support and loyalty and wish our current ones many happy and successful years of trading into the future.”
Jimmy continued: “Our motto is ‘Take a genuine interest in our customers and their needs’. We have approximately 15,000 active stock lines, and if we still have not got what the customer requires, that’s no problem. If it’s available, we will get it.”
General Manager, Niall Curran added: “Wesco is a very people-centric company, and our focus has always been on the needs of both staff and customers. Having very experienced colleagues with many years of experience in electrical wholesale across different areas enables us to offer our clients a level of service above and beyond many of our competitors.”
Managing Director, Ann Owens said: “We are absolutely delighted to reach this milestone in business, and we couldn’t have done it without the great support from customers, staff and suppliers.”
