“We are bringing together two companies who are committed to providing customers with top-of-the-line products, services and support,” said Scott Teerlinck, president of Werner Electric. “This is an exciting opportunity for Werner Electric as we continue to position ourselves in the electrical distribution market, to drive future growth.”

Werner Electric Supply, founded in 1948, is the largest electrical distributor in Wisconsin and operates 11 regional locations throughout Wisconsin and the upper Michigan region.

“This acquisition is an excellent fit for US Lamp since both companies share the same passion and philosophy to provide high performance, value-added solutions and technical expertise to customers,” said Randy Johnson, president of US Lamp. “Werner Electric’s reputation in the industry, capability of its employees, breadth of product offerings and coverage throughout Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula will enhance the services which US Lamp has been offering to our customers for the past 37 years.”

Johnson will remain with Werner Electric to provide lighting design and project management support and to teach lighting technology classes for Werner Electric customers.
