NSi Industries, LLC, a provider of electrical and control products, has announced the acquisition of Simi Valley CA-based SullStar Technologies, expanding its product portfolio in the low-voltage-product market. SullStar Technologies designs tools and connectors for the datacom and telecom markets.
For more than 20 years, SullStar Technologies has been partnering with NSi Industries’ Platinum Tools division, which NSi acquired earlier this year, for the distribution and sales of its products. SullStar’s specialty electrical products include crimp tools, punchdown tools and connectors; the company has more than 60 patents worldwide.
According to G. R. Schrotenboer, CEO, NSi Industries, “This acquisition ties together the sales and development of two businesses into one, further strengthening our leadership position in the low-voltage market.”
As part of the overall acquisition, NSi will gain ownership of, and work on maintaining and enforcing, SullStar’s current patents. The SullStar products will be branded under NSi’s Platinum Tools division.
In addition to NSi’s acquisition of Platinum Tools earlier this year, which expanded its market reach into the datacom market, the company acquired electrical products manufacturer Bridgeport Fittings, Inc., this past August, growing its North American footprint.
