“We are delighted to bring Excel to the United States and we believe the partnership with Sonepar USA, through its operating companies Codale, OneSource Distributors, Viking Electric Supply, World Electric Supply, and Cooper Electric Supply, will provide a great quality and innovative solution, delivered through an experienced and professional distribution channel,” said Paul Mills, Director of Sales for North America at Excel.

“To start, we will focus on the Category 6 and 6A Copper solutions and, over time, we will introduce a wider range of products.”

Here's what makes this story somewhat unusual: Excel is owned by Mayflex, which describes itself as "A Sonepar company." In a way, this is a partnership between two parts of the same business.
