The new owner plans to be hands-on in the company’s day-to-day operations and will utilize their management experience and technical trade knowledge to successfully take over and grow the company. Control Electric will continue to be family-owned and operated, and the new owner looks forward to maintaining the excellent relationship and service that the company has provided to the Greater Grand Rapids community while also advancing opportunities for both customers and staff.
