Averna has purchased Nexjen Systems from Jenkins Electric, a regional supplier of industrial systems and services based in Charlotte, NC. Neither company provided a price.
With the acquisition, Averna expands its menu of test systems and services for the aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, defense, life sciences, telecom and transportation industries with NexJen's expertise in mechanical test systems, RF automated test equipment, industrial control, measurement and monitoring systems and automation control panels.
Jenkins created Nexjen Systems in 2005. Nexjen Systems' President, Darren Lingafeldt, and Vice President, Brian Esque, will continue to participate in the day-to-day operations and expansion plans as Averna employees.
François Rainville, vice president of sales and marketing for Averna, said, "Nexjen Systems represents an exceptional opportunity to expand Averna's presence in the Eastern USA in each of our major market segments as well as tap new resources, solutions and expertise to offer an extended Test & Quality Solution portfolio."
Lingafeldt added, "We are delighted to join the Averna team and provide our long-standing customers with additional opportunities to deliver their test and quality projects worldwide as well as benefit from Averna's renowned global support."
