Legrand has announced the purchase of Server Technology, Inc., a US frontrunner in intelligent PDUs for data centres. Legrand is already present in the data centre market through companies specialising in VDI cabinets (Ortronics, Electrorack and AFCO Systems Group in the US, Aegide/Minkels in the Netherlands, SJ Manufacturing in Singapore and Valrack in India), in PDUs as well as KVM switches and their applications (Raritan in the United States) and in pre-terminated solutions (Lastar/Quiktron in the US). The Group rounds out its product offering in the buoyant data centre market by adding Server Technology, Inc.’s range of intelligent PDUs.
More generally, Legrand is strengthening its presence in the growing market for digital infrastructure, one of the Group’s four buoyant new business segments, driven by the rise in data flow volumes.
