Grounded in 125 years of innovation and service, Sager Electronics is a North American electronic component distributor of interconnect, electromechanical and power (IEP). Our Distributing Confidence® business model goes beyond fulfillment to provide our customers and suppliers a unique combination of operational excellence and innovative business solutions.
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. To further stimulate demand, Sager sponsored a weekly musical radio show and, in 1926, Sager developed the format for play-by-play broadcasts of the Boston Bruins' hockey games. 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 us 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.
Sager now services our growing customer base via our headquarters and state-of-the-art distribution center in Middleborough, MA, a national network of field account representatives, a team of field application engineers and strategically located service centers. In June 2014, Sager Electronics acquired PowerGate LLC, a premier North American power specialist distributor.
From National Prominence to Distributing Confidence®
Throughout our long history, the key to our success has been our constant commitment to exceeding the expectations of our customers. Our unique Distributing Confidence® business model puts our customers' needs at the center of all our activities. From our customized services to our branded line card of authorized manufacturers, Sager Electronics has become a full partner with our customers.
In 2012, Sager Electronics was acquired by TTI Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. company. As a wholly owned subsidiary of TTI Inc., Sager continues to operate as it always has. Our customers can expect the same level of service and commitment from Sager with the added strength of TTI Inc. and Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
