Electrical Equipment Co. (EECO), Raleigh NC, has agreed to acquire the Lynchburg, VA, branch of Eck Supply. The Eck Lynchburg branch is a Rockwell Automation distributor that serves industrial and commercial customers in an adjacent geography to EECO in Virginia, and the purchase will expand the electrical distributor's Virginia footprint.
“The addition of the Eck Lynchburg team will increase service levels to our customers and expand our reach in Virginia," said EECO President and CEO Jack Lawson. "We are excited about the opportunity to combine these two great teams and the increased commitment to our automation business. This investment reinforces our commitment to expand our market presence and strengthen our Virginia-based relationship with Rockwell Automation.”
