NSi Industries, LLC, has announced the acquisition of the Simi Valley, CA-based SullStar Technologies, expanding its product portfolio in the low-voltage product market. SullStar Technologies designs unique patented tools and connectors for the datacom and telecom markets.
For over 20 years, SullStar Technologies has been partnering with NSi Industries’ Platinum Tools division, which NSi acquired earlier this year, for the distribution and sales of its products. SullStar’s patented specialty electrical products include crimp tools, punchdown tools, and connectors, and it has over 60 patents worldwide.
“SullStar is the inventor of numerous global patents in and around the low-voltage tools and connectors space,” says G. R. Schrotenboer, chief executive officer, NSi Industries. “This acquisition ties together the sales and development of two businesses into one, further strengthening our leadership position in the low-voltage market.”
As part of the overall acquisition, NSi will gain ownership and work on maintaining and enforcing SullStar’s current patents. SullStar’s patented product portfolio consists of high-value items that feature unique characteristics to better meet professional low voltage installers’ needs.
The SullStar products will be branded under NSi’s Platinum Tool division.
In addition to NSi’s acquisition of Platinum Tools earlier this year in March, which expanded its market reach into the datacom market, the company also acquired electrical products manufacturer Bridgeport Fittings, Inc., this past August, growing its North American footprint.
