With the recent merger of SurgeX North America and SurgeX International into ESP/SurgeX, the brand’s founders–senior principal Michael McCook, director of engineering Andy Benton, and operations manager Kevin Bromberger–are carrying on in a consulting capacity with the North American company.
North Carolina-based SurgeX and SurgeX International had been two separate companies since Electronic Systems Protection Inc. (ESP) acquired SurgeX North America in 2008. Now they’re back together following ESP/SurgeX’s acquisition of the international brand.
The recent merger frees up McCook, Benton, and Bromberger to focus on their latest endeavor, Outerlimits Technologies, LLC, a new company dedicated to continued invention, manufacturing, and marketing consulting. “When we established SurgeX through New Frontier Electronics 20 years ago, we were confident that it would eventually be recognized as the AC power conditioning field’s leading technology,” McCook said. “As Andy, Kevin and I now turn our attention to creating innovative solutions for a variety of industries, we’ve seen SurgeX International seamlessly transition into ESP/SurgeX and know that the brand is well positioned for continued success both here and abroad.”
SurgeX North America president Shannon Townley added, “We are excited to extend our partnership globally and look forward building on the success of SurgeX International. This is an exciting time for SurgeX.”
