With the acquisition of Macromatic, we are adding to the monitoring capabilities brought to us through the Cyber Sciences acquisition in mid-2023 and increasing our focus on the uptime and productivity of our customers’ operations.”
Primax, based in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, produces utility and industrial-grade AC and DC uninterruptible power systems, DC-to-AC inverters, AC-to-DC rectifiers, and AC and DC distribution panels leveraging lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium and lead-acid batteries and related technology.
The company was founded in 1993 and has 61 employees consisting of design and manufacturing engineers, managers and specialists covering sales, marketing and administration.
