Our Company History
Elreg Distributors Ltd. was founded in 1980 and first established to service the smaller rebuilders of automotive starters and alternators in the Great Lakes 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. There were however 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.
Also, in 1994 ELREG became an authorized warehouse distributor for Delco-Remy.
The company has continued to evolve as the demand for new product versus remanufactured product has increased. Demand for complete units also increased and the need for component parts declined. The landscape of our inventory reflects these changes.
Having recognized the benefits of being a distributor for Delco-Remy and Prestolite Leece-Neville, ELREG pursued partnerships with more Original Equipment Manufacturers – C.E. Niehoff, Lucas, Iskra, Nikko, Nippondenso (Denso), Mitsubishi, and MP Pumps.
On-site technical support was established 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.
