Further strengthening Mitsubishi Electric’s service capabilities in the critical power industry

WARRENDALE, PA – February 24, 2022 – Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc., (MEPPI) today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Computer Protection Technology (CPT).  CPT is a leading critical power service and solutions provider in the Southern California region.

North American demand for critical power equipment and services is escalating rapidly as businesses pursue digital initiatives employing cloud, mobile, edge computing, internet of things, and big data analytics.

“MEPPI is very impressed with CPT’s experience, professionalism, and strong commitment to their customers. We are confident that this alliance will strengthen our collective service capabilities and increase the value that we bring to our customers as an experienced and trusted supplier of critical power equipment and services.” said Tricia Breeger, General Manager of MEPPI’s Uninterruptible Power Supplies Division.

“I am excited about this opportunity for the CPT team of employees. Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. shares a similar vision of providing exceptional client experiences, and we have like-minded cultures. Mitsubishi Electric has been a great partner of CPT’s for over 25 years, and I am confident we will achieve even greater success together after the acquisition. CPT clients and partners will continue to receive exceptional service and product offerings, and we expect this acquisition will create even more value for these partners,” said Michael Murphy, President of CPT.
