Alpha Technologies Inc., a Bellingham-based company that designs and builds power systems for a variety of applications, has acquired a Bangalore, India-based firm called NavSemi Energy, which develops technology to make solar-power systems more productive and efficient.
Alpha’s company leaders said that NavSemi’s customer base in India will expand Alpha’s reach into one of the world’s fastest growing and most progressive solar-power markets. The purchase should also complement Alpha’s existing renewable energy brand, OutBack Power.
“Alpha has worked with NavSemi Energy for several years, and during that time we’ve collaborated well together,” said Drew Zogby, Alpha’s president, in a news release. “NavSemi’s products and philosophy reflect our approach. Together, we expect to expand our market reach into regions such as India, where our joint technologies can have a real impact.”
Alpha Technologies is a global designer and manufacturer of advanced power systems for renewable and other energy applications, as well as back-up power and industrial applications. It is among the top private employers in Whatcom County, reporting about 500 local employees in 2012, according to information provided to The Bellingham Business Journal.
