Wilmington, Delaware-based United Electric Supply has entered into a merger agreement with Kovalsky-Carr Electric Company based in Rochester, New York with expertise in the residential, commercial, and industrial industries.
Kovalsky-Carr will continue to operate as an independent distributor, a subsidiary of United Electric Supply Co. and service their existing customers with a focused effort on expansion in Rochester and the surrounding area.
“Being part of United Electric and their ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) will support our long-term goal to invest in our associates and expand our business,” said Arnold Kovalsky, President, Kovalsky-Carr Electric Supply. “Our two companies share a philosophy and culture that focuses on our customers’ success.”
