Montreal-based Guillevin, one of Canada’s largest distributors of electrical equipment, announced it is acquiring McLoughlan Supplies Ltd. Founded in 1956, McLoughlan has branches in Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
“This latest acquisition consolidates our position of strength in the Atlantic market with a broader supplier base and new customers,” Luc Rodier, Guillevin’s CEO and president, said in a release.
The company will continue to operate under the McLoughlan name under the leadership of Cory MacGuigan, newly appointed general manager. He was previously GM of the Charlottetown branch. All jobs will be maintained under the new ownership.
