Sonepar USA Acquires Eck Supply

Purchase expands footprint in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Sonepar USA, a subsidiary of the privately held France-based Sonepar Group, has acquired Eck Supply Co., an electrical distributor that serves Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Founded in 1955, Eck Supply is a family-owned business in its third generation. The company will be part of Sonepar USA’s New England/Mid-Atlantic region, led by Don Block.

"Eck helps us build density in the Virginia market, and provides us with an opportunity to add coverage and create new solutions with our core electrical business in the Carolinas,” said Halsey Cook, president of Sonepar USA.

Eck last month sold a branch in Lynchburg, VA, to Electrical Equipment Co. (EECO), Raleigh NC.
