RAE was started in 1967 by three equal shareholders, Roy Henderson, Al Marion and Erhardt (Ed) Jorgensen, hence the name RAE was born. The original office opened on Fourth Ave. in Vancouver BC, moved to Richards St. followed by a move to Gardner Court in Burnaby.

RAE Industrial Electronics expanded across the Country in the mid eighties and became a National Distributor with the purchase of a Winnipeg based company Cam Gard Supply. Cam Gard at that time had branch operations in all Provinces across the Country including Halifax NS.

In 1987 the original RAE sold all of its assets to an International Company, ITT Multicomponents , a division of ITT Corp. ITT being an OEM Distributor, stripped the old RAE Company of most branch operations, thus the new RAE Industrial Electronics was formed in 1989 under new ownership of Carl Hart, Ted O'Toole and Dan MacPherson, Their reign continued until July 2012 when the Company resold, as it would be, to three new Shareholders..
