Stamullen based Hanley Energy, a global leader of critical power systems in the Data Center industry, today, announced the acquisition of Flexitech, a dominant Irish Precision Engineering Manufacturing Company, serving client applications in more than 100 countries worldwide.
Flexitech have been active for 20 years and this acquisition will provide the scale and financial strength necessary to compete even more effectively in the global metal manufacturing marketplace to the benefit of consumers. The investment will also lead to the creation of 25 permanent positions at the company’s Irish base over the next two-years.
Hanley Energy has active data centre projects in every continent and has facilitated international expansion by making the transition from a solution integrator to a critical power systems pioneer, developing the most advanced backup power technologies to enable data centre web giants to deliver digital content globally to end users.
