A Bit of History: The starting days of Ko-Hen Electronics Supply


Ko-Hen Electronics Supply Ltd was founded by Joe Koziol and Morley Hennig to distribute electronic parts and components to the commercial and industrial electronics industry in Central Alberta on a wholesale basis. It opened its doors for business on July 2, 1977 in the Truck Town industrial building at 76 Street and 49 Avenue in Red Deer, Alberta. At that time, the business occupied 1408 square feet and the main products it sold were for the communications, TV repair industries and retail sales. When Morley and his wife relocated to Nova Scotia in October 1995, Joe and his wife Janice purchased Morley's portion of the company. Joe continued to operate Ko-Hen Electronics solo until January 1998, when his son Brent Koziol joined the business. In 2002, Joe and Brent leased the neighboring space in Truck Town and expanded the operation to 3840 square feet to accommodate new inventory and products. When Joe retired, the reins of the company were turned completely over to Brent. Brent and his wife, Nonette, are now the sole owners, and still operate the company as a family business.

In March of 2008, Ko-Hen moved to its current location at 6022 - 67A Street, and in the fall/winter of 2015/2016 added another roughly 5000 square feet of warehousing to increase the facility to over 12,000 square feet. Today, the company continues to carry some products similar to what Joe and Morley sold back in 1977, but also now sells products focused on the Oil and Gas Industry, Automation and Controls, and Computer Networking infrastructure. It doesn’t stop there. Ko-Hen Electronics is continually expanding its inventory in order to serve the large customer base in Central Alberta as well as in various markets in Western Canada and the US.
