With more than a century in the electrical supply business, we’re proud to be Western Canada’s largest independent, employee- and family-owned electrical supplier. 

It all started in 1900, when we opened our doors as a humble hardware store in the small village of Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Since then, five generations of the Horsman family have run the company, now led by President and CEO Tim Horsman. 

Today, headquartered in Surrey, B.C., we have the largest branch network in Western Canada, with 22 locations across B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan. We proudly represent over 600 plus suppliers with over 1 million products making us a distributor of choice for thousands of Electrical Contractors, End User MROs, and Industrial OEMs.

Our locations are supported by over 400 employees and technical service teams for:

  • Full-line electrical 
  • Process instrumentation 
  • Industrial automation
  • Lighting supply and design 
  • Data communication products
  • Commercial project quotations

Whether you’re an electrical contractor, original equipment manufacturer, or operations-and-maintenance professional, our experts can help with any electrical need. 

If you need a quote, want to request a demo, or simply hope to ask a question, please feel free to send us a message!
