Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

Jan 3, 2019

RobertsonThe new Edmonton branch will be a 30,000 square foot facility with a strong emphasis on lighting and associated products to start. However, it will evolve quickly into a full electrical branch, including wire and cable.

“This is our first Robertson location in the Alberta marketplace and continues to propel our growth in Western Canada,” says Rick Campbell, President of Robertson.

Robertson has been expanding westwards from its Ontario roots over the last several years. Starting in 2013, Robertson opened a location in Winnipeg, MB. In 2014, Robertson expanded into the BC market by opening a location in Burnaby, BC and most recently in 2016, Robertson opened a location in Langley.

Robertson’s newest location will be supported with new team members. Dean Marchuk will act as Edmonton’s branch manager while Greg Briere and Christian Reed will fill the roles as outside sales representatives. Robertson is also hiring for all positions within its new location.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Robertson family and to help expand the company into the electrical market in Alberta.” says Marchuk. “Robertson has been successful in BC, Ontario and Manitoba, and I think Alberta will soon be on that list.”

Founded in 1952, Robertson Electric Wholesale has provided service to the Canadian marketplace for over 60 years. Branch locations include the following:

• Vaughan, ON (national accounts)
• Scarborough, ON (Wire & Cable Division)
• Woodbridge (head office)
• Oakville, ON
• Oshawa, ON
• Barrie, ON 
• Hamilton, ON
• Kitchener, ON
• London, ON
• Winnipeg, MB
• Burnaby, BC
• Langley, BC

This June, Canadians will commemorate Electrical Safety Month; June also marks the fourth month of the COVID-19 pandemic national lockdown. For many Canadians, working from home has become the new normal. As confinement continues, the demand for constant power feed to connect to the world we now live, work, and play in at home has grown substantially. Homes are being equipped with new technologies that offer plenty of benefits, but they also place high demand on electrical systems at home, potentially causing serious safety risks.
