Convergence Partners Inc., Integrated Sales Inc. and Lighting Solutions of Iowa Inc. plan to form a strategic partnership that would offer the electrical industry a unified resource for virtually all their products, services and design requirements throughout Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas (MINK states), according to a Current press release. This partnership will be marketed under the Convergence Partners brands.
Prior to the strategic partnership, the three companies represented Current’s GLI, HLI and Forum Brands and will now expand its combined representation to include the HLI Brand portfolio in the state of Nebraska.
“We are delighted to be partnering and expanding our relationship with Convergence Partners,” Chip Taylor, Current’s chief commercial officer, said in the press release, “Their service mindset and experience with expanded product portfolios provide our customers with a best-in-class agency experience.”
Peter Kurtz, Convergence Partners president, said in the Current press release that the principals of the three companies are looking forward to partnering with Current and selling the former Hubbell C&I Industrial products and Current portfolio of lighting products. “By bringing these three companies together, Brenda Golwitzer, Doug Olson and I are able to unite a common culture while realizing additional competencies and a deeper level of service for the four-state region.”
