Company acquires electrical firm
A company with roots in electrical services has expanded its statewide reach by acquiring an electrical firm.
Wayland-based Windemuller — a provider of technical and design services with locations in Kalamazoo, Whitehall, Big Rapids, Petoskey and Traverse City — said last week that it has expanded into the mid Michigan market through the acquisition of Hovey Electric in Midland, at 2936 Venture Dr.
Hovey Electric, now re-branded as Windemuller Mid-Michigan, will keep on its staff and former owner Jim Hovey will serve as electrical construction division manager.
“We are immensely proud of uniting two successfully family run businesses,” said Jim Rose, VP of Windemuller. “Both companies were founded on core values of honesty, trust, commitment and accountability, which makes this acquisition a perfect fit.”
Windemuller, founded in 1954, finalized the purchase in January and has been bringing the former Hovey Electric employees up to speed on Windemuller standards.
To support the location, Windemuller also promoted construction electrician Paul Barancik to the position of electrical service technician for the market and added two new staff members: Midland-area native Dan Baldwin, construction services account manager, and Seth Redman, technical services manager.
“Windemuller and our customers are very fortunate to have Dan, Paul and Seth available to deliver the quality service they need and deserve,” Rose said. “We are so proud to have them serving on the Windemuller team.”
