With our wide selection of OEM electronic and electromechanical products, value-added services, and extensive distribution network, WESCO and Carlton-Bates Company can help customers lower supply chain costs and increase operational efficiencies through extra effort customer service.

What you need. Delivered.
In 1957, Carlton-Bates Company opened its doors to supply electronic components and equipment to the growing industrial plants of the United States and Mexico. The company evolved, expanding its geographical footprint, and built its capabilities to service the industrial customer for both their high-tech product and logistical needs.

The high-tech revolution not only brought electronics to manufacturing plants, but to hospitals, utilities, government installations, construction, and all types of business. Carlton-Bates Company was well-positioned to grow with its customers.
