UNIVERSAL CITY, Texas — Global, The Source (a dba of Vladmir Ltd.), a master distributor of HVACR components headquartered in Universal City, Texas, announced the acquisition of American Radionic Co. Inc. (dba, AmRad Engineering) of Palm Coast, Florida, effective July 1, 2020.
Originally founded in 1982, Global was purchased by CEO Dickie Sirotiak in 2001 and has flourished as a family owned business under the management of Dickie Sirotiak, president, Shaun Sirotiak, and vice president, Alison LeBleu.
“AmRad Engineering, founded in 1939, is the oldest film capacitor manufacturing company in the world that is still operated by the founding family,” Dickie Sirotiak said. “Proud of their ‘Made-in-America’ heritage, the company has been an innovator in their field and has been awarded over 65 significant patents and trademarks across multiple industries, most recently more than nine patents for the Turbo® Series of universal capacitors.”
“Global, The Source has played a huge part in our success,” said AmRad President Robert Stockman. “Their dedicated and knowledgeable staff has effectively marketed our Turbo products to almost every HVACR wholesaler in the country and this new relationship will allow us to more effectively market some of our lesser-known products. There’s a huge market out there and at the same time, we are looking to continue developing new products since our success has been based on innovation.”
AmRad President Robert Stockman will be assuming a consulting role. Current Vice President Rich Stockman and all members of management along with AmRad’s employees will continue working with Global.
