Schneider Electric acquires Invensys

On January 17, 2014 Schneider Electric’s acquisition of Invensys was approved by all stakeholders and the deal closed. This acquisition sees two of the leading players in the industrial market join forces to create a more global, innovative, technology company with a strong position in integrated industrial automation, software and energy management.

This acquisition will provide both Schneider Electric and Invensys customers with increased value in these market segments. Leveraging the technology, innovation and development capabilities of both Schneider Electric and Invensys will enable new systems, applications and technologies to be brought to market faster. Together, Schneider Electric and Invensys can deliver an exciting and improved portfolio of offers, solutions and services to further enable engineering and operational excellence for all our customers.

With this acquisition, Schneider Electric and Invensys are creating a global leader in industrial automation, with a more balanced presence across all regions. We gain a stronger footprint in North America and in emerging markets, and a greater market resilience to help us better manage the cyclical nature of today’s business and adapt quickly to changing technology trends.

This is another step forward in building a globally competitive company which is strong in industrial automation, software and energy management. We expect our combined portfolio, supported by our recognised brands, will reinforce our market leadership and accelerate growth in all regions.
