Brief History

Farmville Wholesale Electric was founded and incorporated in 1972 by Lynwood G Smith of Farmville, Virginia.  Mr. Smith and his two brothers established a contracting and retail firm known as Smitty Brothers Electric Company which they owned for over forty years following World War II.  It was always Mr. Smith's dream however to be involved in the electrical business at the wholesale level.  That dream was realized through his two sons with the formation of FWESCO in 1972.  Mr. Smith, widely known as "Linnie" died January 17th, 2004.  He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
