Group CBS, Inc., with commercial interests in electrical supply, field service, and engineering throughout North America, is pleased to announce the acquisition of selected assets of Diversified Electric Services, Inc. of Seymour, Connecticut. Diversified (DES) was a full-service electrical equipment supply, repair, and field service company serving utility, industrial and commercial customers in the North East region. Circuit Breaker Sales NE Inc. (CircuitBreakerSalesNE.com) will merge these assets with its existing resources to serve customers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
"Diversified has 22 years of market presence, a staff of more than 30, and has been a local leader in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic electrical marketplace," said Bill Schofield, vice president of Group CBS, Inc.
"With the addition of Group CBS information systems, equipment inventory, management, and modern technology, new and old customers can expect an even higher level of service from CBS Northeast."
Tim Kelly and Lou Lavorgna, who have served Northeast and mid-Atlantic electrical customers for more than 20 years—the last several years as part of group CBS—will help lead the new organization.
Before this acquisition, Group CBS had interests in 16 electrical supply, service, and engineering companies throughout the West and South. With the formation of CBS Northeast, Group CBS now has brick-and-mortar facilities to better serve its Northeast and mid-Atlantic customers.
