Elk Grove, IL - Steiner Electric Company has reached an agreement to purchase select assets of State Electrical Supply of Janesville, WI. Steiner will continue servicing State’s customers as their founder Ellen Ramberg transitions into retirement. “After nearly 60 years, Ellen is thrilled that State has found a new home with the Steiner family”, said Dennis Ramberg, the founder’s son. During this transition, State will be selling their current location, and liquidating inventory and other miscellaneous assets. Calls and new orders will be forwarded to Steiner’s Rockford location effective November 8th 2013.
Steiner was founded in 1916 and is one of the largest independent, family owned, electrical distributors in the U.S. Jeff Izenstark, Steiner Executive Vice President said “We’ve earned a strong market position servicing the southern Wisconsin market for over thirty years through our Rockford location. Dick Watson, Steiner VP of Branch Operations will be evaluating our options for our new Wisconsin location. State Electrical Supply, a Division of Steiner, gives us the opportunity to officially establish a Wisconsin warehouse and counter operation to support Industrial, OEM and Contractor customers within the Madison, Janesville and surrounding markets."
