At Elreg Distributors Ltd. we specialize in providing our customers with high quality, brand name alternators from manufacturers such as Delco at affordable prices. We work alongside manufacturers in the aftermarket to provide you with reliable, brand name parts for your heavy duty equipment and vehicle requirements.
Otto Bock and Richard Zirger founded Elreg Distributors Ltd. in 1985. It was first established to service the smaller rebuilders of automotive starters and alternators in Toronto, Ontario and the surrounding region. The name EL-REG actually comes from the term ‘ELectronic REGulator’ as this was the first product that ELREG supplied to its customers.
During the early 1980's, aftermarket product sales grew as the number of SKU’s increased. However there were increasing requests for Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM) products. Hence Elreg became a qualified distributor for Bosch and Motorola (now Leece-Neville).
It was also recognized that there was a growing demand for heavy-duty industrial equipment, coach/transit buses and larger on/off-road vehicles and so in the early 1990’s focus was expanded to providing services to the customers servicing these industries.
It was then determined that the various procedures and systems used to achieve the success of our company needed to be documented and formalized to establish a template for continued success. ELREG therefore worked towards ISO certification and officially became certified in 1994.
In 1997 ELREG became an authorized warehouse distributor for Delco-Remy.
The evolution process has continued, as the demand for new product as opposed to remanufactured products has increased. Complete unit demand has also increased and the need for component parts has somewhat declined. The landscape of our inventory has reflected this evolution process throughout the years.
During the next four years; 2000 through 2004, C.E. Niehoff, Lucas, Iskra, and Nikko all become part of the OEM line-up that ELREG offers to its customers.
On-site technical support was established in 2004 to ensure we could better meet our customer’s requirements with respect to product evaluations and analysis. This has also allowed for some on-premise assembly of specialty products.
In spring of 2009 ELREG became an OEM distributor for Denso and Mitsubishi, thereby making it possible to supply alternators and starters for all industrial and heavy-duty equipment.
Whether you need a quality starter or heavy duty alternators we can provide you with the products you need for your vehicle. We work with a number of brand name manufacturers in order to provide you with the highest quality parts at affordable prices.
