Sonepar Acquires City Electric in Syracuse

April 13, 2018
City Electric's 12 branches will be part of Sonepar USA's East region.

Sonepar USA, Charleston, SC, a subsidiary of the privately held Sonepar Group, Paris, France, announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire City Electric, a near-century-old independent electrical distributor based in Syracuse, NY.

Founded in 1919, City Electric started as an electrical appliance store in Syracuse and has grown to 12 branches to serve customers throughout New York State. City is a full-line electrical distributor serving commercial, residential and industrial markets.

City Electric will become a part of Sonepar USA’s East Region, led by Don Block.

“This acquisition extends our branch network to cover all of New York State,” said Halsey Cook, president of Sonepar USA. “The City Electric team and Sandra Rosecrans share our passion for customer satisfaction and we welcome them to the Sonepar group.”
