Walters Wholesale Electric Company was founded in 1953 by Lester H. Walter
The Walters mission is to treat customers and employees fairly and honorably and to develop a lasting and satisfying relationship with each and every one.
For over six decades, Walters Wholesale Electric Company has served the construction industry throughout Southern California. Today, the freeway-close, network of Walters branches provide quick and convenient access to a full complement of supplies for contractors and construction companies. The Walters multi-branch network is unique because it presents the purchasing power of the large chains … thus ensuring competitive prices and up-to-date inventories … and the personalized service found only at the “Mom and Pop” independents. Each of the Walters branches is also linked electronically to the company’s central billing and warehouse, where customers can arrange for pick-up or delivery from the branch closest to their job.
The key to Walters network is our 250,000 square foot distribution centered in Brea, California. We have over $20,000,000 of construction material for daily deliveries to our customers. This makes our Brea facility the largest and most capable distributor warehouse in Southern California. The modern, central repository of inventory is stocked to provide excellent fill-rates on tickets, and to furnish a more efficient system for pulling and staging orders. The large capacity of the site increases the Walters purchasing power, giving every branch a more complete inventory.
