Essco Wholesale Electric, Chandler, Ariz., a subsidiary of Sonepar USA, has acquired Mountain Vista Supply of Sierra Vista, Ariz.
Mountain Vista Supply sells commercial and residential contractor supplies.
The deal marks Essco’s buyback of Mountain Vista Supply. Mountain Vista’s founders, Ron and Joanne Wagner, purchased the business from Essco in 1991.
“It’s kind of ironic that we bought the Essco business back in 1991 to form Mountain Vista Supply and now Essco is buying it back from us,” Ron Wagner said in a press release. “Being an established business, and with Essco’s new presence in the Tucson, Ariz. Market, the Essco team made sense for us and our employees.”
Essco Wholesale Electric has 15 locations in Arizona and California. The firm was purchased by Sonepar USA earlier this year. Ron Wagner will remain with the company.
