Blue Bell, PA (April 29, 2014)—SurgeX International has merged into SurgeX North America, owned and operated by Electronic Systems Protection, Inc. (ESP) of Knightdale, NC. While both SurgeX entities manufactured AC power distribution and protection products, prior to the merger, the SurgeX International brand was owned and operated as a division of New Frontier Electronics, Inc.
SurgeX International’s founders–senior principal Michael McCook, director of Engineering Andy Benton, and operations manager Kevin Bromberger–are carrying on in a consulting capacity with the North American company. The recent merger also frees the trio to focus on their latest endeavor, Outerlimits Technologies, LLC, a new company dedicated to continued invention, manufacturing and marketing consulting.
“When we established SurgeX through New Frontier Electronics 20 years ago, we were confident that it would eventually be recognized as the AC power conditioning field’s leading technology,” says McCook. “As Andy, Kevin and I now turn our attention to creating innovative solutions for a variety of industries, we’ve seen SurgeX International seamlessly transition into ESP/SurgeX and know that the brand is well positioned for continued success both here and abroad.”
SurgeX North America president Shannon Townley adds, “We are excited to extend our partnership globally and look forward building on the success of SurgeX International. This is an exciting time for SurgeX.”
