Acquisition adds value

Bernard Gizzi

In a move set to enhance the value-add services available to customers, Eclipse Embedded Technologies has acquired Electronic Connecter Corporation (ECCO). ECCO will remain in its Chicago headquarters to support a customer base throughout North America and Europe. ECCO will benefit from Eclipse’s design and sales organization in addition to the talent of its executive leadership.

Chief operating officer, Chuck Engvall, said: “This opportunity will bring additional skills in demand creation, marketing and value added capabilities to our team.”

Along with Engvall’s 30 plus years of experience, ECCO will benefit from the distribution experience of Eclipse founder, Bernard Gizzi.

The business will continue operating under the ECCO brand and remain committed to quality service as a connectivity solutions distributor serving the military, aerospace, medical, industrial, and transportation industries.
