Fargo, ND-based electrical supplies distributor Border States acquired Winston Engineering and will transition the business into Border States Engineering Services.

The business unit will continue to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) engineering services to a diverse client base across the United States. Industries served include public works, commercial and residential buildings, agricultural facilities, government institutions, municipalities, restaurants, distilleries, research centers, hotels, hospitals, laboratories and more.

Border States Engineering Services will continue to expand its offerings over the coming months, with an initial focus on the construction market and eventual expansion into the utility and industrial markets.

“Building on top of the existing Winston team expertise, our group will be able to offer a host of specialized services, such as EV design, BIM modeling and utility services, in addition to the traditional MEP design services that Winston has become known for,” said Ryan Evans, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Construction, in a March 1 news release.“With the addition of the professional services offered by the Winston team, Border States will be able to provide high-level technical support and engineering services to help our customers achieve their goals.”

Winston Engineering Founder Anthony Winston III added:

“Winston Engineering has done a lot in a short amount of time with less than 10 people. This is a testament to how well the team collaborates and truly cares about each client and project. Becoming employee-owners at Border States will allow the team to accelerate their careers and provide outstanding MEP engineering services to a new and broader audience.”

Border States ranked No. 6 on MDM’s 2023 Top Electrical Distributors List.
