About Innovative Switchgear Solutions

Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Dacono, Colorado, ISG is a specialty manufacturer of medium-voltage electrical equipment serving the North American utility, commercial and industrial markets. ISG leverages proprietary technology to deliver comprehensive, environmentally-friendly switchgear solutions that solve customers’ engineering, functionality, operational, and space utilization challenges. ISG’s products are highly engineered, offering lower maintenance and safer technology than conventional air-, oil- or SF6-filled switchgear, and have experienced strong adoption since inception.

Bobby Kocol, Chief Executive Officer of ISG, commented: “The sale to Eaton involved a careful balance of the interests of ISG’s customers, employees and owners, and the KPMG team was able to help us secure terms which achieved all three objectives.”

“This acquisition complements our portfolio of medium-voltage switchgear solutions,” said Brian Brickhouse, president, Americas region, Electrical Sector. “ISG’s solid dielectric underground switchgear products provide a compact, low maintenance, highly configurable solution that helps us solve the critical challenges our customers face. We are excited to have ISG join the team.”
