Powerbox has a turnover of €40m with 120 people in design centres in Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, and will be a group company of Cosel.
“Having achieved the status as the number one Industrial Power Supply manufacturer in Japan, and with sales in excess of $230m, our vision is to expand that success globally,” said Masato Tanikawa, President and CEO of Cosel (above, right). “By bringing the Powerbox Group into Cosel, we gain additional design and manufacturing resources enabling us to increase our product offering to our existing customers as well as to enter new markets and acquire new customers. With constant growing and changing power demands, the ability to offer an even wider range of standard & semi-standard power supplies brings us closer to delivering the solutions which our customers require. With the Powerbox expertise in providing custom power solutions, we can support almost any power requirement throughout the Industrial, Medical, Transportation and Defense markets. We are very excited about the future and are looking forward to jointly becoming a truly global & recognized name in the industry.”
“We really look forward to join the Cosel Group and together create a successful common entity. We will be a strong force addressing the growing worldwide demand for innovative power solutions while respecting the environment, contributing to our customers’ sustainability strategies” said Martin Sjöstrand, CEO of Powerbox (above, left). “By becoming a part of Cosel, Powerbox is moving into a new stage of its history. With a number of shared values such as a quality first approach and focus on technology leadership, the combined companies will jointly continue to excel in developing new technology in order to design and to manufacture standard, modified standard and custom products and services that will contribute to our mutual customers’ success”
