Wesco Industrial Products, Inc. was founded in 1948 in Philadelphia, PA. Originally named Welding Service and Equipment Co., the name was shortened to Wesco after a few years. The company moved to its present location in North Wales, PA in 1961.
Starting with the design and manufacture of steel hand trucks and then expanding into drum handling equipment, the company has built a solid reputation for dependable, well-made products. We still make many of those early products today, plus a full line of vending and appliance trucks, platform trucks, stackers, pedalifts and lift tables. Wesco also designs and manufactures custom material handling equipment to address specific customer needs.
Our product line has grown steadily over the years and we have supplemented our full lines of hand trucks, drum trucks and pallet jacks with an assortment of industrial material handling products such as plastic box carts, U-boats, service carts, wood dollies, shelf carts, machinery movers and scissor lifts. In 2007, Wesco acquired Lexco Engineering and Manufacturing Co., which specializes in custom designed lift tables serving the tool and die market.
From its humble beginnings in a small garage in Philadelphia, Wesco has grown to become a leading supplier of quality material handling products.
