ROCKFORD, Ill. – Textron subsidiary Greenlee has acquired HD Electric Co., a designer and manufacturer of power utility products headquartered in Waukegan, Ill.
HD Electric specializes in test and measurement, controls and system-monitoring, safety and specialty products for the electric power industry. The company employs 38 people and will join the Greenlee family of brands alongside Greenlee, Klauke, Greenlee Communications, and Sherman + Reilly.
“The addition of HD Electric expands and strengthens our capabilities in the power utility segment,” said Scott Hall, president of Greenlee and Textron’s industrial segment. “HD Electric, like Greenlee, has a rich history of innovative products. The combination of HD Electric, Greenlee Utility and Sherman + Reilly allows us to offer a more complete product solution to the power utility customer.”
HD Electric is the second acquisition by Greenlee in the last six months. Earlier this year, Greenlee acquired Sherman + Reilly, a manufacturer of heavy pulling products for distribution and transmission power utility applications.
