October 19, 2011 – Burndy—a manufacturer and provider of electrical connector solutions and application tooling (and a subsidiary of Hubbell Inc.)—says it has purchased “substantially all the assets” of Wiley Electronics LLC. Wiley is a provider of grounding, bonding and cable management solutions for solar panel and rack mounting applications.

Its products are sold under the Wiley WEEB and ACME Cable Clip names. Burndy will now offer this complete line of solutions to the solar industry utilizing Wiley’s patent-pending designs.

“This product line is an excellent addition to our extensive portfolio of grounding solutions,” remarked Rodd Ruland, Burndy president. “The innovation of the Wiley products offer time-saving solutions for installers in the fast-growing and evolving solar market. We are very excited to have these products within the Burndy offering.”

Brian Wiley, president of Wiley Electronics LLC noted, “I am confident that Burndy’s track record, market reach and engineering expertise will enable them to carry on with the legacy that we started at Wiley years ago in solar panel interconnect solutions”.

Wiley also said he was “very pleased that many of the key employees who worked with me over the years in establishing this business have decided to join the Burndy family and carry on our tradition as a solution provider to this industry”.
