Proud Tradition of Innovation and Service

Sager Electronics began in 1887 as a single storefront in downtown Boston that serviced the growing interest in radio technology. Under the vision and leadership of Joe Sager, the company rapidly established a statewide distribution system for home radios and related components. Despite the onset of the Great Depression, Sager continued to grow by bringing new electrical products to Massachusetts’ consumers.

From Retailer to Distributor

At the onset of WWII, Sager reacted to the critical demand for electronic components. The company refocused its operations to supply electromechanical components to the U.S. military. This transition positioned Sager to emerge as the leading regional electronic component distributor at the beginning of the consumer electronics market in the 1950s and 60s.

From Regional to National Prominence

Anticipating the explosive growth in electronics, in 1977, we relocated our headquarters to more spacious facilities in Hingham, MA and began building a national network and infrastructure. This included the prudent acquisition of smaller regional distributors and the creation of regional support facilities to service our expanding network of customers and suppliers.

In 2012, Sager Electronics was acquired by TTI Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. company. As a wholly owned subsidiary of TTI Inc., Sager operates independently and has made a number of acquisitions to support its business. In June 2014, Sager acquired PowerGate LLC, a premier North American power specialist distributor. This acquisition preceded Sager’s 2015 purchase of Norvell Electronics, a North American power products distributor with extensive design and value-add capabilities. Sager acquired Power Sources Unlimited Inc. in 2017, and in 2019 completed the acquisition of Technical Power Systems, a battery custom solutions provider.

Headquartered in Middleborough, MA, Sager operates a network of field sales representatives and power systems sales engineers, strategically located service centers across North America, two state-of-the-art distribution centers, and custom design and manufacturing facilities.
