Seymour, CT, May 15, 2019 — Circuit Breaker Sales Northeast Inc., a leading provider and servicer of new and used circuit breakers, switchgear, and related components, has acquired Exstar, Inc., to expand its equipment services in the Boston area.

Located in Stoneham, MA, Exstar specializes in the maintenance, testing, and replacement of power distribution equipment. The company is best known for safe and cost-effective testing and servicing of electrical equipment. CBS Northeast plans to expand Exstar’s hardware services, as well as the company’s existing breaker shop.

CBSNE’s full range of services will be available at the Boston location, including remanufacturing, reconditioning, and repair of all types of electrical equipment; life extension, retrofits, and retrofill services; and emergency field services.

Exstar president Ralph Vito and vice president Chuck Disciscio, each who have more than 30 years of experience in the field, will join CBSNE. “We are expanding Exstar’s already strong capabilities in the marketplace to perform more circuit breaker and switchgear work,” says John Namnoum, president of CBSNE. “Ralph’s and Chuck’s longtime respected foothold in Boston will go a long way to accomplish these goals.”

All senior technicians at Exstar have a minimum of 25 years of working for General Electric (GE) in the switchgear field. They have also been GE factory trained and have worked with the GE factory to repair problems with new equipment.
