Unlike many distributors, Werner Electric Supply is limited in its geographic growth opportunities. The company is based in Wisconsin, with Lake Michigan to the east and Lake Superior to the north. In addition, the distributor has sister companies in Iowa – No. 25 Van Meter Inc. – and in Minnesota. Because of this, growth initiatives have been focused on "broadening horizons," according to Rob Stern, vice president of sales & marketing. Recent initiatives have included power transmission, safety, datacommunications and clean energy.

The distributor joined with 10 other electrical distributors in June 2012 to form EDGE Investment Partners LLC. EDGE (Electrical Distribution Global Enterprise) was formed to build a network of distribution company partners outside of North America.
