Acquisition strengthens power protection capabilities

Power protection specialist Kohler has acquired Dublin-based Pure Power Systems, an independent distributor and service provider of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. The transaction will see Pure Power Systems become part of Kohler’s UK-based UPS sales and service company – Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd (UPSL).

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,” said Jackson. “UPSL is owned by Kohler, which brings us together with the company’s other leading power-industry brands, including Kohler Power Systems, SDMO, Clarke Energy, and – of course – UPSL. 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.”
David Renton, Managing Director for UPSL commented: “Pure Power Systems is a highly reputable company and will be an excellent addition to the Kohler family. 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 datacentre and other power protection customers throughout Ireland and the UK access to an enhanced offering of UPS products and support services.”
