Jan. 5, 2016 – Group CBS says its new company, Advanced Electrical & Motor Controls, will combine the strengths of two previously existing Group CBS companies: Astro Controls and Advanced Motor Controls.

Astro Controls, currently based in Irving, Texas, specializes in low-voltage insulated-case and molded-case circuit breakers, including sales and service of new and professionally reconditioned equipment. Advanced Motor Controls, also based in Irving, stocks new and professionally remanufactured low- and medium-voltage motor control centres (MCCs), including buckets and component parts, as well as life extension services and UL508A custom control panel design and manufacturing services, related heat-trace panels, and QMQB drop-in replacement switches.

The combined warehouse and administrative offices will be located at Astro Controls’ location, with additional sales and engineering offices located at Advanced Motor Controls’ offices.

According to the parties, the merger is effective immediately. Leading the new company will be Randall “Randy” Roumillat, who previously served as president of Astro Controls. Roumillat was named to that position in March 2014 after spending three decades leading operational and IT departments for several corporations including Fidelity Investments and Yahoo.
