Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen acquires Amantys' IP & brands



Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen (MR) acquired all industrial property rights, including patents and brands, of Amantys, along with the bulk of the company's technical facilities and equipment. MR, a traditional family-run company headquartered in Regensburg, Germany, is a leader in the regulation of power transformers with on-load tap-changers. This acquisition marks the completion of another important stage in the implementation of its long-term technology strategy. Amantys. brought a great many new technologies to market featuring intelligent drivers for power electronic components (IGBTs, for example). The technologies acquired are an important element as the Reinhausen Group expands its skills and expertise for application in power electronics. The acquisition opens up a wide variety of new technological possibilities for expansion and optimization of the future product and application portfolio.

So that these technical possibilities can be brought back to market as quickly as possible, on May 19, 2015, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen decided to found a wholly-owned subsidiary in Cambridge, Great Britain, with Amantys Power Electronics. The company's areas of activity will include research and development as well as the manufacture, marketing, and sales of products and services for power electronics and the regulation and control of electrical networks.

MR's stated goal is to complete the founding and market launch of the new company by mid-June at the latest. The team will include a number of employees who previously held important positions at Amantys. One of the first steps will be to reactivate and optimize the existing product portfo-lio. At the same time, innovative technologies will be further developed as a collaborative effort between development partners and customers.
For customers of Amantys Power Electronics, the involvement of MR will safeguard the conti-nued development of established technologies in the field of power electronics.
