CEW Guillevin Wesco 400

Feb 16, 2021

Guillevin International has announced the creation of a new division, Guillevin Datacom, which will be dedicated exclusively to various network infrastructure products. To support this new division and ensure its success, Guillevin acquires the Canadian Datacom business of WESCO International, whose team will join Guillevin’s Canadian operations.

“We have targeted the WESCO business to launch our Datacom division because of the team’s agility, expertise and in-depth knowledge of products from the industry’s leading suppliers”, said Luc Rodier, Guillevin’s President and CEO. “This seasoned team will allow Guillevin to offer its clients a wide range of datacom solutions and to bid on leading projects in this attractive sector. It also allows us to enhance our organic development by offering a more exhaustive range of services, in order to better serve our customers.”

Strategic points of sale will be established for the Datacom division in Québec, Ontario, the Prairies and British Columbia, with comprehensive solutions and complete inventories of products from all manufacturers in every major center.

Products offered by Guillevin’s new Datacom division will include: cable management solutions, copper and fiber optic solutions, conduits, raceway and innerduct, specialty low-voltage wires and cables, networking solutions, test equipment, tools and installations supplies.

The acquisition of WESCO Canada Datacom is part of WESCO’s consent agreement with the Canadian Competition Bureau, following the merger of WESCO and Anixter International in June 2020.
