Aug. 7, 2012
Megger has acquired SebaKMT, a provider of power cable fault location and testing.

Megger has acquired SebaKMT, a leader in power cable fault location and testing and in pipe leakage detection. The acquisition will allow Megger to enhance its existing cable test product portfolio.

Following the acquisition, business will initially continue as usual for both organizations while a full evaluation is carried out of the exciting opportunities created for moving forward with product development and manufacturing operations, and for enhancing customer-facing sales and support services. Customers of both companies will for the foreseeable future, continue to obtain sales, service and support through the same channels they are currently using.

The Vivax-Metrotech Group, formerly part of SebaKMT, has not been acquired by Megger. However, the current sales cooperation in Europe and the United States between Vivax-Metrotech and SebaKMT will continue.

Megger has major development and manufacturing facilities in the UK, Sweden and the United States. The acquisition of SebaKMT, which has its main development and manufacturing bases in Germany and the United States, where it operates principally through its subsidiary HDW Electronics, will increase the turnover of the Megger Group.
