Schneider Electric acquires Andromeda

15 Aug 2011 16.30 BST

(UK) - Andromeda, the intelligent building control solutions providers, has been acquired by Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management with operations in more than 100 countries.

The acquisition will see Andromeda become a solutions provider within Schneider Electric, operating across the EMEAS regions (Europe, Middle East, Africa and South America).
The official acquisition took place on 20 December 2010, and the period of adjustment since has seen Andromeda integrated into the Schneider Electric business model, as well as the appointment of several new staff members to join the company at Andromeda’s offices in Byfleet, Surrey. The coming months will see further transformations, as Andromeda becomes fully integrated into the Schneider Electric brand.
Darren Burford, formerly managing director of Andromeda and now LifeSpace Solutions VP, comments, “The last few months have been a very exciting time for Andromeda, and with new targets and a vast pool of resources set firmly in place we are looking forward to continuing to develop innovative building control solutions for the UK and EMEAS markets under the Schneider Electric banner.”
Burford continues, “Andromeda has enjoyed great success developing solutions for some of the UK’s most iconic sites, and we are thrilled that we can continue this work on a bigger stage, helping businesses make the most of their energy whilst creating exceptional environments to live and work in.”
Jean-Christophe Krieger, LifeSpace Solutions Director at Schneider Electric, states, “Andromeda was selected by Schneider Electric for its technical pedigree and reputation for quality, as well as its significant market presence in the UK. The company’s mission moving forward will simply be to continue completing successful building control projects, with a particular focus on the airports, healthcare, commercial and education sectors in the UK and further afield.”
Krieger concludes, “Andromeda, as the new LifeSpace Solutions division, will be instrumental in helping Schneider Electric match its vision to empower customers to achieve more while using less, by providing integrated control solutions based on efficient and innovative technologies.”
