Hoping to capture a larger piece of Ohio's electrical contractor and industrial construction markets, Becker Electric Supply, Cincinnati, Ohio, bought the net assets of Electric Heat and Supply Inc. (EH&S), Brookville, Ohio. Terms of the acquisition were undisclosed.

Becker Electric Supply already has operations in three Ohio cities: Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus. The acquisition of Electric Heat & Supply will help Becker Electric Supply in the Brookville and Piqua markets, says Dave Adkinson, president of Becker Electric Supply.

Electric Heat & Supply will keep its original name and headquarters, and will operate as a division of Becker Electric Supply. Electric Heat & Supply will be headed by Chris Cunningham who has been named division manager of the new branches. Dave Black, former owner of the company, has been named division sales manager.
