Online News-Potter Electric Signal Aquires Kobishi America, d.b.a. Amseco
Potter Electric Signal Co., a St. Louis, MO, manufacturer of fire sprinkler monitoring products, fire alarm panels and peripherals, and security products, announced that it has acquired the assets of Kobishi America, doing business as American Security Equipment Co. (Amseco).
As part of the agreement, Poter is now the exclusive provider of the Amseco branded products in North and South America.
Amseco operated distribution locations in Los Angeles, CA, and Pine Brook, NJ. Potter evaluated these operations and determined that the day-to-day functions of the company fit best within Potter's current St. Louis operation, and moved all operations to the facility late in 2004.
