September 13, 1948
Werner Electric Supply began as a Neenah-based appliance store and electrical contractor shop, established by Walter Werner. In 1948, inspired by a need to offer improved pricing and product accessibility to his electrical contractors, he founded Werner Electric Supply. This venture eventually blossomed into a highly successful, multimillion-dollar distribution operation.

Embracing forward-looking solutions leads to positive outcomes for all stakeholders, aligning with our mission.

Werner Electric has been headquartered in the Fox Cities since its inception. Having operated from Neenah for many years, the company later constructed a cutting-edge, 200,00-sq-ft regional distribution center in Appleton. This facility has enabled our ongoing support for local organizations through volunteer initiatives, donation campaigns and meeting space offerings.
The quality of the people in the Fox Cities region is top notch. Strong values, hard work and high integrity define the people in our communities, and this allows us to better serve our customers. They are what differentiate us in our markets.
Werner Electric recently unveiled its new Innovation Center, which displays current and future manufacturing technology trends.
