Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, has reached an agreement to purchase Lincoln, Nebraska-based Geist, a privately owned manufacturer of Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) and associated data center products.

The acquisition will add engineering and design capabilities with patented Geist technologies, expand access to the channel, and solidify Vertiv as a global leader in the data center Rack PDU space.
