XP Power adds RF power supplies with acquisition of Comdel

XP Power, a developer and manufacturer of critical power solutions for the electronics industry, announces that it has acquired the business and assets of Comdel, a Massachusetts, US-based designer and manufacturer of radio frequency (RF) power supplies.

The $23 million deal expands XP Power’s product offering into RF power, complementing its extensive range of AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies. Comdel will become the RF Power Division of XP Power and Comdel’s CEO, Scott Johnson, will remain with the business to head up the new division.

Comdel and XP Power share several customers, particularly in the semiconductor equipment sector. XP Power will now be able to help these customers streamline their supply chains by delivering more of their requirements from one source.

The deal also brings new customers to XP Power, particularly in photovoltaic and induction heating industries. Comdel products will be available through XP Power’s 27 sales offices throughout Europe, North America and Asia.

Duncan Penny, Chief Executive of XP Power, said:

"We are delighted to welcome Comdel to the XP Power Group and are excited about the opportunity of offering its complementary product range through our global sales channel. The acquisition will enable us to provide our existing customers with a comprehensive product offering in RF power, a market segment with robust demand fundamentals but one in which we did not previously specialise. We are confident that Comdel will have a very successful future as part of XP Power."
