Wabtec acquires relay monitoring systems

Wabtec Corporation (NYSE: WAB) has acquired Relay Monitoring Systems PTY Ltd. (RMS), a manufacturer of electrical protection and control products with annual sales of about $15 million. The company’s products, which are used in energy and rail applications worldwide, include relays, transformer control systems, and voltage regulators, as well as electrical output monitoring systems and sensors.

Raymond T. Betler, Wabtec’s president and chief executive officer, said: “RMS is an excellent strategic fit with our existing Mors Smitt business. Together, the companies offer complementary products and geographic presence, which we believe will result in superior growth opportunities for both.”

Based in Australia, RMS has operations or distribution networks in Asia and the Middle East, and its customers include utilities and rail equipment manufacturers.
