This year’s listing is a particularly interesting stew in that there’s a taste of all the trends that have surfaced in past years. On the acquisition front, in 2012 we saw well over a billion dollars in sales volume shift to the national chains, with Rexel’s acquisitions of Platt Electric Supply, Beaverton, Ore., and Munro Distributing Co. Inc., Fall River, Mass.; Sonepar’s acquisition of Codale Electric Supply Inc., Salt Lake City, Utah; CED’s purchase of Walters Wholesale Electric, Signal Hill, Inc.; and WESCO’s acquisition of EECOL Electric Corp., Calgary, Alberta.
