Only three months after Independent Electric Supply, OneSource Distributors, headquartered in Oceanside, near San Diego, California, USA, also joined our Sonepar USA operations, effective as of November 1st, 2011.
OneSource Distributors is an electrical distributor addressing mainly utilities and industrial automation customers using the Rockwell product line. With a turnover of $US 400 million and 363 associates, OneSource Distributors consists of 13 branches and three ISO 9001 certified distribution centres throughout California, as well as Hawaii, South-West Arizona and Baja California in Mexico.
Together with Independent Electric Supply which joined us last August, OneSource Distributors grants us a highly strategic presence on the West Coast of the United States. Sonepar USA is thus propelled within three months to a clear leading position in California, which is the ninth economy worldwide, comparable to that of Canada.
In addition, these moves, which were enabled by the fit between management teams and business concepts, reinforce substantially Sonepar USA business base and country coverage as a whole, allowing it to operate coast-to-coast with a network of 460 branches achieving $US 5 000 million turnover thanks to the implication of 7 300 associates.
While welcoming the additional forces that OneSource Distributors brings to our group, under the leadership of Bob Zamarripa and his teams, we rejoice in their future contribution to our common profitable growth in the United States.
Sonepar USA has enjoyed a double-digit growth attaining $US 4 200 million turnover on a sliding 12 month basis.
