US industrial power supply company Mesa Technical Associates is to acquire Alcad’s lead-acid business in North America for an undisclosed sum.
Mesa said the agreement would allow Alcad to “focus on its core business of providing complete solutions for nickel-cadmium battery systems”.
Mesa plans to expand its lead-acid battery products and related services to its customers in the utility and industry sectors.
Alcad’s director of sales in North America Marino Cavaggion said: “Mesa is without question the best choice to carry on the lead-acid legacy Alcad has created for over four decades in North America, based on their capabilities, experience, and reputation in the industry.”
According to Alcad, “over the past few years, nickel-cadmium has seen a very large increase in new adopters in the areas of outdoor utility switchgear applications, generator set engine starting, and various other applications in the upstream and downstream oil and gas business”.
