“This partnership allows Leading Edge to maintain our family-owned business roots and retain ownership in the combined companies,” said John Rang of Leading Edge. “The synergies of Leading Edge and WESCO create exciting opportunities for our customers and industry partners.”

Added Leading Edge’s Matt Johnson, “Our customers and I see a great future for the industry. We have always been committed to remain privately owned, and positioning our company and customers for long-term success. Our partnership with WESCO ensures that Leading Edge’s staff, customers and business philosophy remains unchanged. Our ability to compete with innovation and cutting edge technology is greatly enhanced by partnering with WESCO.”


WESCO’s Roger Howe said, “For the first time in 18 years, WESCO has added a partner. I’m always interested in strategic growth opportunities, and partnering with Leading Edge makes sense because of their vision, integrity, innovation, competitive culture and incredible staff. And they comprise the entire state of Arizona and Las Vegas, which establishes a strong WESCO foundation in the Southwest. We welcome Leading Edge to the WESCO family.”
