Electrical unit EIS has acquired Electro-Wire, Inc., a distributor and contract manufacturer of specialty wire and cable products primarily serving the telecom and transit markets. The company expects the acquired business to generate annual revenues of $100 million.
S.P. Richards, the distributor's office supplies segment, acquired Garland C. Norris Company Inc., a regional wholesale distributor of food service disposables and janitorial and cleaning supplies. The company expects the acquired business to generate $35 million in annual revenues.
"We are pleased to have closed on the acquisition of CSI, as we believe they provide Motion with significant growth opportunities across Canada," said Tom Gallagher, CEO of Genuine Parts Company.
