A local workplace design firm’s electrical subsidiary has acquired an electrical contractor.

Grand Rapids-based Custer said yesterday its subsidiary C&S Electric acquired Grand Haven-based Erickson Electric Service.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The combined electrical companies have 40 employees.

Erickson Electric Service will continue to operate as normal, but it will now also work on C&S Electric projects.

“We are excited to leverage the resources and talent of C&S Electric to better serve our clients locally and throughout West Michigan and to have guidance from the Custer family as owners,” said Tom Erickson, founder, Erickson Electric Service. “This allows us to grow into Grand Rapids, enables flexibility in staffing and creates more efficiency in operations.”

C&S Electric was acquired by Custer in 2014 to help integrate technology into furniture and throughout office projects.

“C&S Electric’s acquisition of Erickson Electric Service allows both companies to expand their services into the greater West Michigan market,” Custer VP of Business Relations Mark Custer said. “Adding Erickson Electric Service to the C&S team brings us additional highly skilled electricians and will allow both companies to work on larger projects.”
