ALLIED Wholesale Electrical Supply, Inc (AWESI) is a full line Electrical and Plumbing Distributor primarily serving the Contractor and institutional markets. In December of 1985 after leaving Cummins Engine Company in Columbus, Indiana Bob McCurdy purchased 2 small Electrical Distributors in Indianapolis and started AWESI. Bob quickly grew the business and outgrew two buildings before building AWESI's current headquarters in 1996. In 2002 with the new building and some newly hired key employees AWESI cracked Electrical Wholesaling magazine's Top 250 at #247.
In 1993 after attending Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, Bob's son Rob McCurdy came to work at AWESI. Together Bob and Rob continued to grow AWESI through great customer service and a commitment to inventory. In 2006 AWESI again outgrew it's building and a 35,000 square foot expansion was made to create the current 54,000sqft. headquarters. With the room to grow and service customers better, AWESI again cracked the Electrical Wholesaling magazines's new Top 200 at #174 and have remained in the Top 200 ever since.
In 2009 Rob McCurdy purchased the Company from Bob. Bob is currently enjoying retirement. Rob has continued to grow AWESI into other markets. In 2016 he added a Bloomington, Indiana location to complement Indianapolis and Anderson, and then in 2016 Rob purchased a Plumbing distributor to further diversify.
With new technology, streamlined process, great employees and a continued commitment to what we do best; service and inventory, AWESI will continue to provide quality products at competitive prices to all of our customers for years to come.
