Circuit breakers and more: Group CBS announces formation of Advanced Electrical & Motor Controls Inc.

Group CBS Inc., with interests in electrical supply, field service, and engineering companies across North America, is pleased to introduce a new company, Advanced Electrical & Motor Controls Inc. The company will combine the strengths of two previously existing Group CBS companies, Astro Controls, Inc. and Advanced Motor Controls.

Astro Controls, Inc., 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, Texas, stocks new and professionally remanufactured low- and medium-voltage motor control centers (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.

Advanced Electrical & Motor Control’s combined warehouse and administrative offices will be located at Astro Controls’ location, 1801 Hurd Drive, Irving, Texas, with additional sales and engineering offices located at Advanced Motor Controls¹ offices, 2010 Century Center Boulevard, Suite R, Irving, Texas.

The merger is effective immediately. Leading the new company will be Randall “Randy” Roumillat, who previously held the position of president of Astro Controls, Inc. Roumillat was named to that position in March 2014 after spending three decades leading operational and IT departments for several major corporations including Fidelity Investments and, most recently, online service provider Yahoo.

Randy will have a strong team to help lead the new organization, including: Chris Comire with over 30 years of industry experience; Mike Sweet, ME head of operations; and David Muir, who is currently running Advanced Motor Controls. David has more than thirty years of industry experience as well, and will be heading up sales and marketing for the new company.
