Cable Maker in Valencia Acquired

A New York electronics distributor has acquired Whitmor/Wirenetics, a provider of high-performance wire, cable and tubing in Valencia. Financial terms of the deal between BJG Electronics Inc. in Ronkonkoma, N.Y., and the privately held Whitmor were not disclosed. Founded in 1959, Whitmor supplies its wire and cable to military, aerospace, satellite and industrial markets. Mark Lee, vice president at the Santa Clarita Valley company, said that joining BJG allows for cross-selling opportunities from both geographic and product standpoints. “We now have a comprehensive product set and infrastructure in place to serve customers coast-to-coast, including wire and cable, connectors, backshells and related value-added services,” Lee said in a statement. This is the second acquisition that BJG Electronics has done in the past year. In April, the company bought Connector Tech LLC, a Montana distributor of electronic interconnect products.
