New Yorker Electronics Acquires Switches Unlimited

It's the second acquisition in the past year for New Yorker Electronics, which added Texas-based Omni-Pro Electronics last October.

New Yorker Electronics Co. — a New Jersey-based distributor of passive electronic components, discrete semiconductors and supply chain services —announced Sept. 1 its acquisition of Switches Unlimited Inc.

Founded in 1961, Queens, New York-based Switches Unlimited is a distributor of electromechanical and automation controls for markets including the industrial, military, medical and food and beverage sectors. It offers products such as switches, relays, timers, circuit breakers, enclosures, terminal blocks and transformers. The company will continue to operate as Switches Unlimited as a subsidiary of New Yorker Electronics, according to a news release.

It’s the second acquisition in the past year for New Yorker Electronics, which added Texas-based Omni-Pro Electronics last October.

“We are continuing to identify and invest in strategic assets which affirm our commitment to provide customers with an unparalleled selection, depth of inventory, in addition to the highest level of customer and engineering services,” New Yorker Electronics President Barry Slivka said. “Everyone at New Yorker Electronics is confident the acquisition of Switches Unlimited will deliver significant added value to our customers while expanding New Yorker Electronics’ footprint throughout the U.S.”
