Recent Transaction Strengthens Capabilities and Reach of Leading Power Protection Company
KOHLER, Wis. – May 2, 2017 – Kohler Co. has acquired Pure Power Systems, a Dublin-based independent distributor and service provider of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. The transaction will see Pure Power Systems become part of Kohler’s successful UK-based UPS sales and service company – Kohler Uninterruptible Power Ltd (KUP).
Established in 2003, Pure Power Systems has locations in Dublin and Limerick and was owned by company founder Ian Jackson. Jackson and all other current employees will continue to lead and manage Pure Power Systems following the acquisition.
“We’re excited about this new chapter in our company’s story,” Jackson said. “KUP is owned by Kohler Co., which brings us together with the company’s other leading power-industry brands, including Kohler Power Systems, SDMO, Clarke Energy, and – of course – KUP. We believe this is a very promising development for our customers and employees alike and we’re now well positioned for continued success and a new level of growth here in Ireland.”
“Pure Power Systems is a highly reputable company and will be an excellent addition to the Kohler family,” said David Renton, Managing Director for KUP. “We’ve partnered with Pure Power for nearly a decade, so we’re very familiar with the company’s deep technical expertise as well as the unmatched, locally-based service they provide. This acquisition will allow us to give our datacenter and other power protection customers throughout Ireland and the UK access to an enhanced offering of UPS products and support services.”
KUP is part of Kohler Company’s Power Group and was among the first companies to bring modular UPS and transformerless UPS technology to the United Kingdom. The company offers a full breadth of power protection products and related equipment, including UPS, battery banks, switchgear, power conditioning equipment, and more.
