Legrand finalizes ZPE Systems acquisition to boost services from data center to the edge

Data center solutions provider Legrand has completed the acquisition of ZPE Systems, Inc., a California-based company that offers critical solutions and services for business critical infrastructure.

The company notes that the aim of the acquisition is to bring together ZPE’s management infrastructure and services delivery platform for data center, branch, and edge environments to Legrand’s data center solutions of overhead busway, custom cabinets, intelligent PDUs, KVM switches, and fiber solutions.

Speaking about the deal, John Selldorff, president and CEO of Legrand, North and Central America, says: “ZPE Systems leads the fast growing and profitable data center and edge management infrastructure market. This acquisition allows Legrand to enter a promising new segment whose strong growth is expected to accelerate further with the development of artificial intelligence and associated needs.

Edge computing, AI and operational technology will require more complex data centers and edge infrastructure with intelligent IT needs to be built in disparate remote geographies. This makes remote management and operation a critical requirement. ZPE Systems is well positioned to address this need through high performance automation infrastructure solutions, which are complementary to our current data center offerings.”

The company’s solutions include serial console servers, sensors, and service routers that enable remote access and management of network IT equipment from data centers to the edge.

As the acquisition is finalized, ZPE Systems will become a business unit of Legrand’s Data, Power, and Control (DPC) Division. The company notes that Arnaldo Zimmermann will continue to serve as Vice President and General Manager of ZPE Systems, reporting to Brian DiBella, President of Legrand’s DPC Division.

“By joining forces with Legrand, ZPE Systems is advancing our leadership position in management infrastructure and propelling our technology and solutions to further support existing and new market opportunities,” adds Zimmermann.
