“The combination of our companies significantly expands our technologies and capabilities, enabling us to deliver a comprehensive-solutions offering to our broad customer base, across a wide range of vertical end markets,” said Deepak Nayar, senior vice president and general manager of Littelfuse Electronics Business. “Our businesses are highly complementary and enable us to leverage our collective go-to-market models and global footprints. It is a pleasure to welcome the C&K employees to the Littelfuse team, and we look forward to their contributions, as we continue to execute on our long-term growth strategy.”

In its initial announcement in April, Littelfuse said it entered into a definitive agreement with an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. to acquire C&K at an enterprise value of $540 million.
