LPA Energy, a lighting and energy solutions provider, has announced its acquisition of VRT Systems, an industrial systems integrator, specialising in energy management and utility billing infrastructure. The addition of VRT Systems to the LPA Energy Group will enhance the range of solutions offered, furthering LPA’s mission to provide clients with innovative, solutions that deliver energy and operational efficiencies.
Both groups of privately-owned companies have, over the last 30 years or more, delivered a proud track record of service innovation and customer loyalty from their respective global customers. Both organisations are highly committed to the principles of sustainability in all its forms. LPA’s traditional offering of lighting efficiency is now backed and supported by a large range of IIoT solutions that allow our clients to have full visibility across their operations to drive energy reductions”, says John Saunders, founder and Chairman of LPA Energy.
VRT Systems will continue to develop industrial information solutions in the areas of sensors, automation systems, tracking, energy management and operations management across the manufacturing, utilities, transport, construction, and government industry sectors.
According to John Meehan, the founder of VRT Systems, “another significant benefit to our customers will be the acceleration of the product development roadmap, particularly within the WideSky family”.
Other brands included in the acquisition include CETA, a commercial metering solutions business, and WideSky, a cloud-based IIoT platform that offers true visibility of the performance of working environments.
By joining all these brands under one company, LPA has created a unique offering for clients in being able to promote a full range of solutions to drive energy and operational efficiencies in their businesses. From individual lights, energy and water meters through to customised, complex IIoT solutions that provide visibility and control over a broad range of sensors, we now have the entire solution. Our customers will benefit from the scale and global reach that LPA brings to the table, safe in the knowledge that our existing team of world-class engineers and developers will still be available to support them now and into the future.
