CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Van Meter Inc., a Cedar Rapids-based wholesale distributor of automation, electrical, data-comm, lighting, utility and energy products and services, has completed the purchase of Miller Electric Supply, an electrical distributor with locations in Dubuque and Clinton.

The purchase, which began in January, allows Van Meter to expand to 14 locations in Iowa.

“A key part of our growth strategy is to expand into new markets,” Kevin Powell, President and CEO of Van Meter, said in a written statement. “The addition of Dubuque and Clinton locations really rounds out our service territory and creates new opportunities for us in Eastern Iowa as well as parts of Illinois and Wisconsin.”

Customers and suppliers with questions about the acquisition are asked to call 1-800-247-1410.
