SolarEdge Technologies, that it will enter the field of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) by signing an asset purchase agreement with Gamatronic Electronic Industries Ltd (TLV: GAMT), a technology leader in the field. SolarEdge intends to leverage its track-record of technological innovation, operational excellence and power electronics expertise, in combination with Gamatronics' intellectual property, know-how, and market presence to build a leading global UPS business. Through this acquisition, SolarEdge will expand and diversify its business and continue to develop innovative technology that drives progress in smart energy and transforms the way the world produces and consumes energy.

Gamatronic develops, manufactures, and sells UPS electrical devices that provide emergency power to appliances when the input power source fails.
