Sonepar, Charleston, S.C., distributor of electrical, industrial and safety products, announced that they have made two separate acquisitions, PEPCO and Basin-River Electrical Supply.
Professional Electrics Product Co. (PEPCO) is a family-owned business headquartered in Eastlake, Ohio. PEPCO will add 10 branch locations across Ohio and Pennsylvania to Sonepar’s footprint.
“PEPCO’s strong utility and contractor business and geographic footprint in Ohio and Pennsylvania makes this an exciting acquisition for us as we look to expand into new territories,” said Rob Taylor, president of Sonepar North America. “PEPCO’s recent growth is impressive, and we look forward to providing PEPCO associates and customers with further opportunities.”
Basin-River Electrical Supply is headquartered in Plaquemine, La. The acquisition will be integrated into Sonepar’s Crawford Electric brand, expanding its presence in Louisiana.
“In the Louisiana region, Crawford operates four locations focusing on commercial and industrial segments. The Basin-River acquisition further builds Crawford’s presence with petrochemical, utility, and marine contractors,” said Taylor.
