Smooth Operators: Spotlighting Longtime Group CBS Employees

Lee HeineBy Andy Collins, Business & Inside Sales Support, Circuit Breaker Sales & Repair, Inc.

Group CBS is celebrating 30 years of service from Circuit Breaker Sales and Repair’s (CBS&R) Lee Heine. Heine encompasses what it means to be a leader in the power distribution industry.

Heine got his start working summer shutdowns with a NETA testing company. In 1986, Heine attended an open house hosted by Circuit Breaker Sales, and two months later was offered a position there.

For the next 10 years, Heine worked in sales for the Group before being approached by Finley Ledbetter to lead a new Houston-based operation, Circuit Breaker Sales & Repair.

The growth of CBS&R is evident with three shop relocations due to size and a steady increase in staff to keep pace. The crew is anchored by two of Heine’s original hires: Izzy Sosa (shop supervisor) and Terri Dever (office manager).

The Houston-based breaker shop celebrated its 20th year of business and welcomed new staff members to address the increasing demand for its products and services along the Gulf Coast region.

Despite the rise in production and the variables that coincide, a constant remains: providing customers with premier power distribution solutions.

Keeping pace while ensuring that quality is executed in its highest form takes commitment, knowledge, and unwavering loyalty from employees. These traits, among many others, are best exemplified by CBS&R shop supervisor Israel “Izzy” Sosa.

A Devotion to Disruption

A Devotion to Disruption

Investments in research and systems and a willingness to embrace the market’s changes show why Group CBS may be the most interesting business in the electrical industry.

Oct 1, 2015 Doug Chandler | EWWEB

Bill Schofield is taking a huge chance. He has made the decision to take a risk and the ball is rolling, one that will significantly affect his business and may change the entire segment of the industry he’s part of. He’s excited, but also wary.

Schofield, president, runs Group CBS, Gainesville, Texas, a company that is no stranger to making waves. It has thrived and grown over 34 years on the controversial margins of the electrical industry, buying, refurbishing, remanufacturing and reselling used and surplus electrical equipment. That end of the market is still reviled publicly by most manufacturers and traditional distributors, characterized as a haven of dusty warehouses stacked with dark piles of dangerous junk sold with a wink. But most of those manufacturers and distributors do business with him, Schofield says.
