Legrand, North and Central America (LNCA), the regional division of French industrial giant Legrand, has acquired US power distribution specialist Server Technology.

The acquisition was announced back in June, but has now closed after passing the usual regulatory hurdles.

Server Technology will join LNCA’s Data Center Power and Control division, which also includes Raritan, but it will operate independently. Prior to the acquisition, Server Technology had around 200 employees, more than 60,000 customers and annual revenues of more than $110 million.

“The acquisition of Server Technology demonstrates Legrand’s continuing commitment to innovation and leadership in the data center market,” John Selldorff, president and CEO of LNCA, said.

“Server Technology’s robust offering of intelligent PDU product lines, including -48 VDC, as well as basic power strips, will complement our current PDU and KVM offerings from Raritan and strengthen our ability to meet the complex needs of the data center marketplace.”

Brandon Ewing, GM of Server Technology, added: “We are excited to join LNCA and provide customers with a broader product portfolio, as well as advanced R&D capabilities and an expanded global reach.

“The combination of Server Technology and Raritan will enable us to provide accelerated product development, better service, and faster response times to customers in North America and across the globe.”
