Tennessee Industrial Electronics ("TIE"), a portfolio company of Charlotte-based private equity firm Summit Park, is pleased to announce that it has acquired The Parker Group of Companies ("PGI"). Headquartered just outside of Detroit in Clinton Township, Michigan, PGI provides electronic drive and printed circuit board ("PCB") repairs, manufactured electronic motor brake products, and sub-contracted manufacturing and retrofit services of PCBs, wiring harnesses, and cable assemblies.

"PGI's extensive product knowledge and in-house technical repair capabilities are highly complementary to TIE's FANUC expertise," said Tony Wisniewski, CEO of TIE. Wisniewski continued, "PGI will add extensive electronic repair expertise across new key OEMs including Siemens, Allen-Bradley, Okuma, and Baldor, making the company a one-stop-shop for all CNC electronics parts and repairs."

TIE, based in La Vergne, Tennessee, is a leading provider of parts and repairs for computer numerical control ("CNC") systems. TIE specializes in refurbished FANUC aftermarket parts such as controls, motors, and drives and holds an extensive inventory of over 75,000 parts. The company sells to a variety of machine tool end users and resellers across the United States and internationally.

"We are very pleased to acquire The Parker Group of Companies. Our investment thesis has always been to expand our OEM expertise and our outside sales team. This acquisition accomplishes both, and we look forward to building on each company's historical success," said Bob Calton, Managing Partner at Summit Park.
