Anixter Turns 60

In 2017, Anixter celebrated its 60th anniversary. What began in 1957 with two brothers and an idea to sell wire and cable by the foot has grown into a company of more than 8,800 employees in over 300 locations worldwide, offering wire and cable, communications, security, utility power and supply chain solutions to over 150,000 customers.

Although a lot has changed since 1957, a lot has stayed the same, including our philosophy, “People come first.” We credit our success to the people—employees, customers and suppliers—who have supported us throughout 60 years of growth and innovation.

In celebration of our 60th year in business, we wanted to share 60 of our favorite fun facts and accomplishments ranging from 1957 to the present day. Enjoy!
