Sonepar Reorganizes U.S. West Region

The CA-based operations of Independent Electric Supply will merge into OneSource Distributors, while the AZ-based branches will merge into Quality Electric Distributors.

Sonepar — ranked No. 2 among electrical distributors on MDM’s 2023 Top Distributors Lists — recently unveiled a new vision for its West Region in the U.S.

In the new region model, the California based operations of Independent Electric Supply will merge into OneSource Distributors, while the Arizona based branches will merge into Quality Electric Distributors (QED).  In the Las Vegas market, the QED branch will join with the Codale Electric operating company. The utility business of Independent Electric Supply will move to Sonepar’s Irby Utilities.

“I’m excited to see this transformation begin,” said Rob Taylor, President of Sonepar North America. “The new structure allows the teams to focus on initiatives that have the highest potential for success; from enhancing inventory and service levels with a stronger supply chain, expanding digital support to more customers, or delivering more value-add services that differentiate us in the marketplace.”

The changes take effect this month.

“As a leader in electrical distribution, backed by unprecedented investments in our supply chain and digital capabilities, it’s the right time to make these changes,” said Dana Mouritzen, President of Sonepar West Region. “With this plan, we realign and optimize the resources required to maximize growth opportunities and ensure we position ourselves very competitively in a changing business landscape.”

The regional news comes about three months after Sonepar announced the merger of its Irby and Crawford Electric subsidiaries. It’s the second major company development announced this year, alongside a $1 billion digital transformation initiative announced back in April.

One West Region company, OneSource, recently topped $1 billion in sales in 2022 for the first time.
