A PRIVATE equity firm based in California has announced its majority investment in Kendal-based Mardix.

Mardix, which supplies power distribution equipment, will join Bertram’s existing portfolio company Anord Control Systems to form the Anord-Mardix Group.

“As we continue to power clients across the global cloud computing industry, we at Mardix are very enthusiastic about joining forces with Anord to create the Anord-Mardix Group," said managing director at Mardix, James Peacock.

"The businesses are highly complementary with an unrivalled product portfolio that we believe is second to none in quality terms. Additionally, with over 400,000 square feet of manufacturing capacity across North America, the UK and Europe, we will be better positioned to provide customers with a full suite of solutions on a global basis."
