    Western Carolina Electrical Supply Company is a wholesale supplier of the electrical industry serving contractors, industries, local businesses and the general public. Western Carolina Electrical Supply Company opened its doors for business in 1953 and is located in the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. W.L. "Bill" Tysinger started the company in the small mountain town of Lenoir, where the company's main office is still located. In 1960, Don Jensen joined the company as Vice President, later becoming President in April of the following year. In December 1996, he became the corporation's majority stockholder. 1972 brought the birth of the company's Wilkesboro branch, a location 30 minutes east of Lenoir. Each location presently services an approximate 50-mile radius. Lyle and Brent Jensen are Don and Virginia Jensen's two surviving sons. Lyle became the company's 1st Vice President in 1976, after having worked at the company the previous four summers between semesters at school. Eight years later he became President. Don retired on December 31, 1984 and became the company's CEO and Chairman of the Board. Brent became a Vice President. In October of 1985, Brent became the first Vice President, then becoming Vice President in October 1987. He also became the store manager of our Wilkesboro operation.  In October 2015, Lyle passed away leading to Brent becoming President and his son, Landon filling the Vice President position.

    Our company has always offered its products at a fair price, along with "superior" quality and excellent service… before, during, and after the sale. We have an experienced and most qualified staff of sixteen employees that are willing and able to meet your every need and will deal with you the way that you want and expect to be treated. You may see many of our employees helping to make their neighborhoods better places in which to live. They give back to their communities by participating in scouting, coaching youth sports teams, volunteering in the schools and PTA's, working in various civic clubs, helping those less fortunate, and in many functions within their own churches. Giving back to their communities is important to each of them, just as it is to Western Carolina. We support their fine efforts. Thank you for your continued business, for without you, we could not continue getting stronger after nearly 60 years. If you are a new or potential customer, come by or give us a call or inquiry.
