A proud tradition of innovation and service
Sager Electronics began in 1887 as a single store in downtown Boston that served the growing interest in radio technology. Under the vision and leadership of Joe Sager, the company quickly established a nationwide distribution system for home radios and related components. Despite the onset of the Great Depression, Sager continued to grow, bringing new electrical products to Massachusetts consumers.
From retailer to distributor
At the beginning of World War II, Sager responded to the critical demand for electronic components. The company shifted its activities to the supply of electromechanical components for the US military. This transition positioned Sager to emerge as a leading regional distributor of electronic components in the early consumer electronics market of the 1950s and 1960s.
From regional to national prominence
Anticipating the explosive growth of electronics, in 1977 we moved our headquarters to larger facilities in Hingham, Massachusetts and began building a national network and infrastructure. This included the judicious acquisition of smaller regional distributors and the establishment of regional support facilities to serve 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 leading distributor of electrical specialists in North America. This acquisition preceded Sager’s 2015 purchase of Norvell Electronics, a North American distributor of energy products 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 provider of customized battery solutions.
Headquartered in Middleborough, Massachusetts, Sager operates a network of field sales representatives and power systems sales engineers, strategically located service centers throughout North America, two state-of-the-art distribution centers, and custom design and manufacturing facilities.
