Van Meter Inc., a 50% partner in Werner Ventures LLC, the legal entity that owns Minnesota-based Werner Electric, announced April 5 their intent to make a stock purchase of the remaining business from MacDonald Ventures. The sale is expected to close on April 30.

“For 20 years, Van Meter and the MacDonald family have proudly owned and supported a successful and growing business in Minnesota.
