LAKEWOOD RANCH — High-tech infrared window manufacturing and distribution firm IRISS, a national leader in electrical maintenance safety devices, acquired a New Jersey-based engineering firm.
Financial terms of the deal, for Delta T Engineering, weren't disclosed. Delta T, according to a statement, “develops wireless monitoring systems that detect temperature increases and prevent electrical equipment failures in electrical enclosures caused by poor connections and overloaded circuits.” East Manatee County-based IRISS, which makes industrial-grade infrared windows used by power generation facilities, will move the firm to Florida and hire engineers to meet potential demand, the release states. IRISS opened a $5.7 million headquarters facility in April and announced more expansion in December.
“This acquisition plays into our overall company strategy of becoming a leader in the EMSD (electrical maintenance safety devices) market,” IRISS Group CEO Martin Robinson says in the statement. “Delta T's online monitoring system will join our family of EMSDs, which currently includes infrared windows, ultrasound port and external voltage detection ports. Use of EMSDs allow maintenance tasks to be completed while the switchgear enclosure remains closed.”
