Another Sonepar takeover in the United States
Sonepar USA has taken over the electrical wholesale company Eck Supply, which has its headquarters in Richmond, Virginia and a further 18 branches in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Eck Supply is a family-owned company in the third generation, which was founded in 1955 and managed to generate a turnover of EUR 148 m in 2014.
Eck becomes part of the Sonepar USA New England/Mid-Atlantic Region, which is managed by Don Block.
Up to now Eck Supply has belonged to the purchasing association IMARK, but now this membership is terminated with the takeover.
At present Sonepar USA numbers 16 local electrical wholesale firms with about 700 branches in all 50 US states.
