History

Our company's history began in 1954 when we started supplying electrical contractors with wiring, switches and fittings.This was to become the backbone of our business providing a firm foundation for future success.

The eariy sixties saw Davis & Spence experience enormous growth with the development and opening of a modern lighting showroom at our head office at Hannell Street Wickham

During the late sixties Davis and Spence was awarded exclusive distributor status by a number of prominent national and international manufacturers of technically advanced and innovative electrical and mechanical controls. This is a tradition that continues in the 21st century!

The late seventies saw Davis & Spence establish major contacts with American and, Japanese refrigeration manufacturers. This led to us becoming a major supplier of industrial and commercial refrigeration components.

With the eighties Davis & Spence introduced an online computer system, to provide a sophisticated inventory control and full accounting system for customers. Branches were linked by dedicated data lines enabling real time stock look-ups in any branch, Supported by interbranch deliveries, the system meant less stockouts and a better service. Today, we have inventory records for over 550,000 unique products.

During the early nineties we joined the Combined Wholesalers Group (Electrolink) as a foundation member, combining the buying power of the large national companies with the flexibility and versatility of an independent wholesaler.

With decades of experience in a constantly changing industry the Davis & Spence philosophy of offering "the most comprehensive and most competitive price" hasn't changed!

Our staff remain helpful and courteous backed up by formidable technical knowledge and resources. Our constant expansion of services and skills within the electrical, mechanical, refrigeration and air conditioning industries means we are at the forefront of change, providing the beneflts to our customers sooner: At the same time our pricing structure always ensures a very competitive price.
