Belmont, NC-based MRO distributor Vallen has completed the acquisition of the Wesco Integrated Supply (WIS) business from Wesco International.

The sale includes predominately all of Wesco’s industrial maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) integrated supply business in North America and Europe. The move figures to position the company more purely as a distributor of electrical, electronics, communications, security, utility and broadband products and solutions.

“This divestiture supports our portfolio management strategy to prioritize investments and resources in the areas of our business that offer the strongest growth and profit potential,” said Wesco Chairman, President and CEO John Engel in an April 1 news release.

For Vallen, the move enhances its market presence in industrial MRO. On MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists, Vallen was No. 18 for Industrial Distributors and No. 9 for MRO.

“As a combined company we will be the partner customers and suppliers turn to for innovative and sustainable solutions, providing technical product knowledge, deep experience with supply chain solutions, and excellent customer service,” said Vallen North America CEO Chuck Delph in a news release.
