Circuit Breaker Sales Northeast Acquires Sertec Relay Services

Seymour, CT - Circuit Breaker Sales Northeast, Inc. (CBS Northeast), a Group CBS company and a leading provider and servicer of new and used circuit breakers, switchgear, and related components, is pleased to announce its acquisition of the assets of protective relay specialist service company Sertec, LLC (Wallingford, CT). Sertec specializes in buying, selling, and repairing protective relays and other specialty electrical equipment and will operate as a division of CBS Northeast.

“The addition of this one-of-a-kind specialty protective relay and electronics service facility further complements Group CBS’ strong technical commitment to the industry,” says Bill Schofield, senior vice president of Business Development at Group CBS. Sertec’s facilities and inventory in Wallingford, CT, were included in the acquisition. Financial details of the deal were not released.

Paul Body, long-time principal of Sertec, will expand his role in the business going forward and serve as a director in the Group CBS’ Northeast operations and expansion. “Sertec’s customers can expect to receive the same excellent protective relay and electronics repair and retrofits that they are accustomed too, while benefiting from the additional inventory, design, and manufacturing benefits that come from being part of Group CBS,” Schofield says.

The Sertec acquisition follows Group CBS’ purchases of the assets of Diversified Electrical Services (Seymour, CT) in April 2014 and Electric Control Equipment Company, Inc. (Norwalk, CT) in November 2014.

The Sertec, Diversified Electric, and Electric Controls acquisitions are part of a strategic multi-year acquisition program by Group CBS.
