Yaskawa Electric Corporation (Yaskawa) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire The Switch, a supplier of megawatt-class permanent magnet generator and full-power converter packages for wind power and other renewable energy applications. This acquisition will support both companies’ strategic objectives and strengthen their international presence. The estimated schedule for closing the deal is within a few weeks.

The Japan-based Yaskawa System Engineering Division has been focusing on growing its market share in renewable, marine and industrial applications over the past few years. In autumn 2013, the two companies entered a strategic collaboration agreement whereby Yaskawa gained access to The Switch’s proven capability in megawatt-class power generation and The Switch was able to develop its presence in Japan.
