Sixty years ago, the Anixter brothers started a business that would ultimately change the electrical wire and cable industry. With the basic concept of providing customers the types of services they needed, beginning with shorter lead times and quantities that the customers specified, Anixter began its journey to become the leading global distributor of electrical wire and cable. Today, Anixter’s business model is differentiated by our unmatched global footprint, customized supply chain solutions, and industry-leading technical expertise, and has grown to an $8-billion business. With nearly 9,000 employees, operating in approximately 50 countries across the globe, we are well-positioned for future growth.
The Anixter 2017 Annual Report highlights a year of significant progress, demonstrating how Anixter continues to pursue growth and opportunity while driving value for our customers around the world.
