By PSW Staff • April 29, 2014 SurgeX International (Blue Bell, PA) announces that it has merged its global interests with SurgeX North America, owned and operated by Electronic Systems Protection (ESP) of Knightdale, NC. With all of SurgeX International’s intellectual property effectively now transferred over to 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. The recent merger frees up McCook, Benton and Bromberger to focus on their latest endeavor, Outerlimits Technologies, 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,” says McCook. “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 adds, “We’re excited to extend our partnership globally and look forward building on the success of SurgeX International. This is an exciting time for SurgeX.” SurgeX North America Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
