In 1951 Westburne started out as the Westburne Oil company, supplying the industrial needs of the oil patch. Today, Westburne is one of North America's largest distributors of electrical, plumbing, heating, refrigeration, industrial automation, data/voice communications products. We employ over 6,000 people in five regions - Eastern Canada, Ontario, Western Canada, USA Central/East, and USA Pacific. Head Office is in Montreal, and Westburne's North American network consists of over 360 branches.
Over the years, Westburne has developed a competitive edge in the areas of efficiency and customer service - and because of superior purchasing power - cost-effectiveness.
Westburne's most active market is Western Canada, where we are continually opening new branches to service customer needs. In Western Canada, Westburne employs 1,500 people, in over 106 outlets, serving over 100,000 customers. We supply services and products for construction contractors, industrial and commercial enterprises, equipment manufacturers, institutions, utilities, government bodies and, to a minor degree, retail operations.
Westburne Supply Alberta services customers in the North West Territories, Alberta, and Southeast British Columbia. We have over 180 employees working in 14 branches with major warehouse distribution hubs in Calgary and Edmonton. Recently, Westburne Supply Alberta has upgraded it's Electronic Data Interchange capability so that customers now have access to Westburne's inventory on computer and soon on-line with the world wide web. We also offer extensive service through product specialists and our automated customer service call centers. – less–ZoomInfo
