Werner Electric Ventures

Werner Electric is not your typical electrical distributor. You would not expect to find an expert in automation, switchgear, commodities, lighting, and clean energy solutions at your local shop or online.

We are a distributor of expertise and new solutions for you: we deliver more than what’s in the box. Anyone can provide product, but with Werner, it’s the human element that makes us different. Efficiently fulfilling your orders is only the start of what we do; we listen to you and offer new ideas and opportunities that improve your business.

Werner Electric has a rich history of electrical distribution in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin that began in 1920. Our Cottage Grove headquarters is a hub of over 140,000 square feet of warehouse. With six branches and a distribution center that runs around the clock, customer support and timely delivery are where our value begins.

Werner Electric has been awarded as a Top Workplace by the Minneapolis Star Tribune for nine straight years. Our forward-thinking employees are pushing the boundaries of what a distributor can do, every day, so that you have an exceptional experience. It’s time to transform your expectations.
