S&C Electric Co., Chicago, Ill., has purchased the power quality business operation from Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution Inc., Raleigh, N.C. The operation, located in Orlando, Fla., designs and manufactures dynamic voltage restorers (DVRs) and other PQ devices for high-tech customers. S&C will integrate the operation into its power electronics division.

“This deal is a win-win for both Siemens and S&C,” says Jan van Dokkum, president and CEO of Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution. “It allows us to focus like a laser beam on the high-voltage systems business and our utility customers, while rounding out S&C's portfolio of distribution products for industrial customers.”
