Kohler Co. Acquires Pure Power Systems

Recent Transaction Strengthens Capabilities and Reach of Leading Power Protection Company

KOHLER, Wis. – May 2, 2017 – Kohler Co. has acquired Pure Power Systems, Dublin-based independent distributors and suppliers of UPS systems (uninterruptible power supplies). The transaction will see Pure Power Systems become part of Kohler’s successful UK-based UPS servicing and sales company – Kohler Uninterruptible Power Ltd (KUP).

Established in 2003, Pure Power Systems has locations in Dublin and Limerick which were previously 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 – Kohler Uninterruptible Power. 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 supplier of UPS systems and will be an excellent addition to the Kohler Uninterruptible Power 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 UPS company’s deep technical expertise as well as the unmatched, locally-based UPS service they provide. This acquisition will allow us to give our data centre and other power protection customers throughout Ireland and the UK access to an enhanced offering of UPS installation and UPS maintenance services.”

KUP is part of Kohler Company’s Power Group and was among the first companies to bring modular UPS technology and transformerless UPS systems to the UK. As one of the leading suppliers of UPS systems, they offer a full breadth of UPS power protection products and related equipment, including uninterruptible power supplies, battery banks, switchgear, power conditioning equipment, and more.
