Mayer Electric Supply to Buy Higgins Electric Distribution Arm

Mayer Electric Supply Co., Birmingham, AL, will acquire the distribution operations of Higgins Electric Inc., Dothan, AL.

The service, construction, air compressor and motor shop departments of Higgins are not part of the sale, and Higgins will continue those operations, the Birmingham Business Journal reported.

Higgins operates in south Alabama, northern Florida and west Georgia. The company was started in 1930 in Dothan as an electric motor repair and sales facility. In 1988 the company was purchased by new owners who expanded the product line offered and added an outside and inside sales team, according to the company’s Web site.

Mayer has been active on the acquisition scene lately, with purchases of Jones & Lee Supply, Knoxville, TN, and Biloxi Electric Supply, Birmingham, AL, in the past three months.
