SurgeX of Pipersville, Penn., has merged its North American operations with Electronic Systems Protection, Inc. (ESP) of Zebulon, N.C. SurgeX is a leading manufacturer of AC surge elimination and power conditioning products for the professional audio, video, broadcast and multimedia industries, while ESP is a leading original equipment manufacturer of power protection technology.

SurgeX states that the announcement reaffirms its dedication to power protection for the professional A/V market, and is a strategic addition to ESP’s power protection business. The merger will reportedly extend ESP’s product line capabilities and will enable SurgeX to both expand within existing markets and penetrate new markets using ESP’s resources and expanded distribution. SurgeX management will join the ESP team and by late January all product manufacturing will be consolidated into ESP’s facility in Zebulon, N.C.


Michael McCook, SurgeX senior principal and owner of New Frontier Electronics Inc., notes: “This is an exciting milestone for our company and we are eager to work with ESP. ESP is an excellent company and this merger will allow SurgeX to offer our customers and partners expanded resources, sales and marketing expertise, enhanced product solutions, expanded manufacturing capabilities and broader engineering resources. I look forward to working together with ESP to ensure a rapid and seamless transition and to continue building the SurgeX brand for years to come.”

“SurgeX’s product offerings along with its position in the pro A/V market make it an ideal fit for our company,” states Steve Cole, president of ESP. “SurgeX’s solutions, talent and customers complement ESP’s business and extend our ability to deliver compelling products and services to new industries. As a result of this acquisition, SurgeX’s diverse product line, and ESP’s manufacturing expertise, we will be able to expand into new markets as the premier provider of power protection solutions.”
