January 16, 2015 – Effective January 1, 2015, Osso Electric Supplies officially merged with Sesco—both Ontario electrical distributors within the Sonepar Canada family.
This merger was announced back in 2014 by Todd Walford, president of Sonepar Ontario.
“The Osso Electric Supplies name will remain but the company will become a brand of Sesco,” explained Walford. “This merger will see Osso Electric Supplies become known as Sesco East and Sesco becoming known as Sesco GTA. This change will allow us to maintain our competitive pricing and continue providing seamless service.”
The alliance of these two companies will strengthen the back office synergies with purchasing and inventory management, explained Walford, while enhancing the operational support for the entire company.
Sesco, which was established in 1922, has been chosen as the flagship brand in Ontario “to maximize on its history and strong market presence”.
