TSG Acquires Georgia Copper

Adds grounding and bonding business to its portfolio

Technical Services Group has acquired Georgia Copper, a provider of copper grounding and bonding products used in broadcast and other specialized sectors. Terms were not disclosed.

Georgia Copper, based in Cleveland, Ga., was founded by Gary Smith. Its products include strap, braid, wire, ground clamps and other hardware and tools. TSG said Smith proposed the sale ahead of his planned retirement.

Gary Smith founded Georgia Copper in 2007.

TSG is a broadcast engineering and commercial AV solutions provider based in Baton Rouge, La. Its CEO is Bo Hoover.

Bo Hoover is CEO of Technical Services Group.

“The acquisition broadens TSG’s existing portfolio of RF, studio and facility infrastructure solutions, which includes core copper, lightning and surge suppression products,” the company said in the announcement. 

“The acquisition also strengthens TSG’s value proposition as a full-service provider, which spans installation, commissioning and technical support services along with a growing product line of its own.”

Georgia Copper’s operation and inventory will relocate to Baton Rouge. Hoover said he plans to continue the business, add products and expand its ecommerce capabilities.

In addition to radio and TV, Georgia Copper products are used in data centers, emergency response services and other fields. According to the Georgia Copper website, Smith plans “to play with grandkids, or play the piano, or something like that.”
