Irby Co., Jackson, Miss., a subsidiary of Sonepar USA, announced the acquisition of Electrical Test Labs of Georgia, Inc. (ELTG), Lake Park, Ga. The purchase will expand Irby’s test lab offering and product range.

ETLG operates a dielectric test lab and a mobile testing unit that serves customers in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. Irby has three existing test labs in Fargo, N.D.; Fort Worth, Texas; and West Boylston, Mass.; and operates mobile test units across its service territory.

The ELTG team joined Irby effective Sept. 14 and will become part of Irby’s Tool & Safety division as the largest operator of dielectric testing labs in the United States.

“With the addition of the ETLG location and team, Irby now has become the leading provider of high voltage gloves, tools and PPE equipment testing solutions to the electrical industry in the country,” said Mike Wigton, president of Irby.
