Powerbox to acquire Eplax for more custom power

May 03, 2016 // By Julien Happich
One of Europe’s largest power supply companies, Powerbox has acquired the privately-held German power supply manufacturer Eplax for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition is expected to strengthen Powerbox' custom-power capabilities, addressing its four major markets - industrial, medical, railway/transportation, and defence - for which the company designs and distributes premium power conversion solutions for systems requiring high reliability.

The two companies combine more than 80 years of expertise, having delivered more than 3,500 custom-power solutions for a variety of demanding applications worldwide. Formed in 1964 (VERO) the company Eplax has a track record of more than 1,000 successful custom-power projects. The company portfolio also includes a large range of standard products for rack type applications.

“The previous long lasting working partnership between Powerbox and Eplax has already shown that the combined competences and assets have been valued by our common customers. Together we offer the marketplace leading technical and cost-optimized solutions” said Andreas Mielke, Eplax co-owner. “I’m convinced that with our enhanced worldwide sales presence, in combination with a strong R&D capability and standard portfolio range, we can jointly exploit the full potential of our capabilities to achieve further success in the market place.”
