In 1927, Robert L Brews began his Calgary business as a manufacturer’s representative. At that time his focus was on supplying equipment to the Electric Utilities in Alberta. By 1950 the company also operated a full branch in Edmonton to expand the market focus on all Industrial users of electrical control and apparatus. By the mid 60’s the company started the process of changing from an agent to a distributor and expanded the product offering to cover all the electrical equipment needs of industrial users. At the same time the sales force was separated in to the Industrial and Utility divisions.
In 2006, brought new changes; R.L. Brews was sold and the company name was changed to Brews Supply Ltd to reflect this change in business ownership. The electrical and utility divisions remained under the corporate name Brews Supply Ltd. Then in 2011, WESCO announced its acquisition of Brews Supply Ltd and we are now known as ‘Brews Supply – A Division of WESCO Distribution Canada LP’.
Throughout its history, Brews Supply has been known as the industrial wholesale distributor of choice for people who value service, industry knowledge, product quality and availability.
Today Brews Supply is composed of an Industrial Electrical Division and the Utility Division.
