On January 3, 1968, WISCO SUPPLY INC., was started as an independently owned and operated company.W.I.S. CO., Inc. was originally formed in 1967 as a subsidiary of Wyler Industrial Works, Inc. The walk-in trades associated with boiler & compressor parts were disrupting the primary activities of Wyler, so the parts and supply functions were isolated away from the parent company.W.I.S. CO., Inc. was established as an independent company in 1968 and moved to 802 S. Virginia St. The company purchased Harper Industrial Supply, Co. the same year and integrated that company, its personnel, and product lines into the W.I.S. CO., Inc. Organization. W.I.S. CO., Inc. began to grow, slowly adding more people, acquiring new product lines and developing a reputation within the El Paso business community.In April 1981, W.I.S. CO., Inc. moved into its new facility at 815 S. St. Vrain St. where it is still presently located.
In May of 1985, W.I.S. CO., Inc. was changed to WISCO SUPPLY,INC. This allowed us to utilize the same name in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas and to acquire stores in those states.On September 26, 1986, WISCO SUPPLY, INC. purchased NEWMAC Supply Co., Inc. in Albuquerque, NM. This was done to give us access to products that were used by the mining companies in New Mexico. The NEWMAC name was changed to WISCO SUPPLY, INC.- ALBUQUERQUE in December 1986 and merged into the parent company.On February 1996, WISCO SUPPLY wanted to branch out into other states and did so by purchasing Boiler Specialty Supply, Inc. (BSSI) in Albuquerque, N.M. BSSI was the premier boiler parts supplier in New Mexico as well as a Cleaver Brooks Representative.In January 1997, the BSSI name ceased to exist and was now called WISCO SUPPLY, INC. This change was to give us name recognition in three states & two countries.
