N.A.T. acquired assets of former MicroBlade Inc.

N.A.T., a leading manufacturer and provider for infrastructure and board level products as well as turnkey-solution for MicroTCA, announce the acquisition of the assets of former MicroBlade Inc..

MicroBlade Inc. have been a key supplier for MicroTCA infrastructure products such as 19” chassis (Microbox) and MicroTCA compliant DC (Panther) and AC (Puma) power modules, holding several patents and rights on these products. Because of the complementary product portfolios both companies entered into a reciprocal distributorship agreement in 2009. After MicroBlade ceased existence, in 2011 N.A.T. entered into a license manufacturing agreement with the interim owner of the MicroBlade assets and has now signed an acquisition agreement for these assets which became effective immediately.

“This acquisition is an important mile stone in our vision for a complete product offering”, said Helmut Laufkoetter, Managing Director of N.A.T.. “It also provides the surety for our customers that they can rely on N.A.T.’s long term commitment for this technology in the same way they have been relying on N.A.T. before!”
