RESCO Company Profile
RESCO is a member-owned not-for-profit electrical wholesaling business. Our members and customers are Rural Electric Cooperatives, Municipal Electric Utilities and Investor Owned Utilities in the upper Midwest extending from Michigan to Montana. RESCO assists its member/customers in procuring their distribution and transmission electrical material supply needs at very low and competitive prices.
First incorporated in 1936 as Wisconsin Electric Cooperative (WEC), we became Rural Electric Supply Cooperative (RESCO) in 1972 to reflect an expansion into multiple states and our more active role as an electrical distributor.
Today, RESCO is one of the largest full-line distributors of high voltage electrical products in the Midwest; supplying power cable, transformers and utility pole hardware plus high-tech systems and equipment. RESCO provides dependable service and an assured source of reasonably priced, quality materials to all electric utility customers. RESCO’ s four fully-stocked, strategically located warehouses exceed 100,000 square feet of inventory storage space and can ship products 24/7, promptly responding to any emergency.
Our experienced management team and knowledgeable, professional sales staff help customers solve distribution and transmission issues quickly to keep power flowing throughout the region. Plus, RESCO offers the added “ value of ownership” benefit whereby excess margins are returned to our member/customers in the form of patronage refunds.
