I look forward to welcoming the Butler’s Electric team to Capital and leveraging our companies’ strengths to expand our business opportunities together.” Commenting on the acquisition, James Butler, owner of Butler’s Electric Supply, stated in the press release, “My father founded this company 75 years ago. We’re very thankful for the associates and customers who brought us to this moment. It was important to me that both would be well-served in the transition of ownership.  We found the right partner in Sonepar as they will bring the resources and opportunities necessary to remain competitive for the future.”

The acquisition does not include Butler Lighting, which is owned and independently operated by James’ brother Carlos.
