OCZ; long standing leader in PC memory and power supplies, with a few coolers too. PC Power and Cooling; an undeniable source for great cooling gear and power delivery. It would be sweet to see what both of them could do if they join forces.
Well, OCZ has just announced their acquisition of PC Power and Cooling in a press release from earlier today. Now I could go into great and extraordinary detail as to what the future holds for these two tech giants, but I'll just drift over some of the more important details.
Both parties hope to utilize their expertise and advanced research and development lab to facilitate even better PC power delivery systems. OCZ does have their own brand of high-efficiency, high-output power supplies. PC Power and Cooling has in past days been recognized as a world leader in PC power distribution. As best as I can recall, PC Power and Cooling had used SeaSonic as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for their power supplies. Both companies will still release products under their own respective names, but expect for this collaboration to improve all of their future product releases.
"OCZ and PC Power & Cooling are both technology leaders that share a common passion for delivering premium solutions to consumers," said Ryan Petersen, CEO of OCZ Technology Group. "By bringing these two established companies together we are able to leverage the strengths of each organization and accelerate the development of cutting edge products for a variety of markets. We believe that collectively OCZ and PC Power & Cooling will build on our combined heritage to revolutionize high end computing."
I for one can't wait to see what they'll roll out next.
"As an expansion partner, I believe we have found in OCZ the ideal fit for the culture and approach of PC Power & Cooling," said Doug Dodson, founder and CEO of PCP&C. "In my new role as Chief Technology Officer, I will focus on maintaining PC Power's lead in proven ultra high-performance with the Turbo-Cool line, and in value and quiet computing with the Silencer line, as well as provide guidance for the continuing improvement of OCZ's power management solutions. I am excited about the improved accessibility of PC Power & Cooling products and I am confident that our rich tradition of reliability and innovation will continue to strengthen as a part of the OCZ Technology Group."
Both OCZ and PCP&C have been recognized as industry leaders. I'm certain that this new partnership will herald a bright new day for the PC market. Enthusiasts and simple consumers alike should benefit greatly from the new developments coming forth. Hmmm, I can't wait to see what they roll out next.
