Knightdale, NC – April 16, 2014 – ESP/SurgeX, the leader in energy intelligence and power protection, announces the acquisition of SurgeX International, which had been operating as its own entity since Electronic Systems Protection, Inc (ESP) acquired SurgeX North America in 2008. The move unifies all SurgeX operations under a single management team located in Knightdale, NC, and enables the company to streamline international expansion and better serve its customers.
Global demand for smart energy and power management products is growing and the acquisition allows SurgeX to better serve the needs of an electricity-dependent world. The company is uniquely suited to handle the demand of established and developing markets based on its existing operational capabilities and extensive product offerings across IT, audio video, digital signage, office supplies, imaging, healthcare, hospitality, security and more. Uniting worldwide operations and management of SurgeX assets in the Knightdale, NC headquarters will increase product development and result in more consistent service for customers, distributors and dealers.
“We are living in an increasingly developed and powered world. Reliance on IT infrastructure and other electrical systems is higher than ever so safeguards are needed against the various anomalies that can affect equipment and systems,” said Stephen F. Galloway, CEO and president ESP/SurgeX. “We have existing residential and commercial product lines, development capabilities, and manufacturing capacity to serve the evolving needs of our growing international market. Furthermore, the move will increase sales opportunities for our U.S. based dealers, consultants and design integrators who handle installations all over the world.”
SurgeX’s diverse product portfolio includes solutions for audio video, IT infrastructure, digital signage, integrated systems and more. SurgeX provides professional-grade power protection and intelligence solutions for rack systems, branch circuits, and standalone equipment for mission critical electronics.
