SolarEdge acquires UPS supplier Gamatronic, signaling race for PV inverter suppliers to diversify business models
May 17, 2018
Leading solar inverter supplier SolarEdge announced on May 9, 2018, its intention to acquire Gamatronic, a manufacturer of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. This move is a clear indication of SolarEdge’s plans to diversify its business outside of solar, and to expand into new large revenue industries with potential for disruption. This asset purchase agreement will enable SolarEdge to build a presence in the UPS market, which will reach nearly $8 billion globally in 2018.
