The company this week announced it had acquired Davenham and VASS. Terms were not shared.

Davenham is an Irish specialist in low-voltage power distribution systems (protection, switching, metering, and energy distribution) for data centers, including hyperscalers. Its business also includes product commissioning and aftermarket services.

The Dublin-based company employs 350 people and reports annual revenue of around €120 million ($128.8m), mostly in Europe and the United States.

VASS is an Australian provider of busbars, primarily for data centers. Based in Ingleburn, near Sydney, and employing close to 40 people, VASS reports annual revenue of just under €10 million ($10.73m), mostly in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

Legrand CEO Benoît Coquart said: “We are very pleased to announce these acquisitions that will significantly complement our offering in the ‘white’ space (servers’ room) with solid positions in the ‘grey’ space (technical room), in the very promising data centers segment.”

Coquart said the company had made 10 acquisitions in the data center vertical over the past five years, five of which have come this year.

“Together with the three investments announced earlier this year (MSS, Enovation, and Netrack), these acquisitions represent annual revenue of more than €200 million ($214.6m),” he added.
