Hughes-Peters is pleased to announce that we have acquired Hammond Electronics, a seventy year old Orlando based distributor. With this purchase Hughes-Peters expands into the Southeast market, adding locations in North Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
Like Hughes-Peters, Hammond is an IPE distributor with strong value added capabilities. Both companies also have a philosophy of partnering with customers by pipelining inventory to support their production needs.
Combining the two companies will make Hughes-Peters one of the top 15 distributors in North America. Although John Hammond, current President of Hammond, is looking forward to retirement, he will remain during the finalization of the merger. More information will be released as events warrant.
