Danske Asetek flytter til USA

Danske Asetek flytter til USA

Der har været en del ryger omkring det, men nu er det officielt. Den danske køle producent Asetek, flytter til USA.

Det sker som et led i en større kapital indsprøjtning. Det er kapital fonden D. E. Shaw Ventures der har skudt 16 millioner dollars ind i virksomheden, hvilket briger den totale investering i Asetek op på 38 millioner dollars siden virksomheden startede tilbage i 2000.

Asetek, Inc., a world leader in liquid cooling and thermal management solutions, announced today that the company has completed its "B" Series of funding. D. E. Shaw Ventures has led the $16 million series B round bringing the total investment in Asetek to nearly $38 million since the company was founded in 2000.

PCs are getting smaller, acoustics are becoming much more important, which means better thermal management is needed. People are tired of PCs sounding like jet engines when operating under load. Asetek has a solution that solves the thermal challenges by cooling both the CPU and the graphics in the popular small form factor PCs. This thermal management technology enables the small PC's to now deliver the same performance that previously required large bulky chassis. Noise is also minimized to provide a comfortable computing experience to the end user. Asetek enables a cost effective thermal solution that provides low acoustic noise together and high performance to be delivered in a small form factor chassis. This daunting capability is not possible with traditional thermal solutions that exist today.

"We are excited to participate with Asetek as it continues its strong growth in the thermal management arena," states Andre Turenne, a Senior Vice President at the D. E. Shaw group. "Asetek's business relationships with premiere OEMs such as HP, Acer and other leading PC OEMs are an impressive accomplishment. This validated our belief in the company's vision and future success."

"We are pleased by the confidence D. E. Shaw Ventures has demonstrated in our company's technology and market directions," states Andre S. Eriksen, founder and CEO of Asetek. "The D. E. Shaw group's distinguished staff and financial expertise are ideal to guide Asetek's expansion and growth. We will use the additional capital to add sales, marketing and technical resources to enhance our product offerings and expand OEM thermal management products into new markets."

Success drives growth

Premiere OEMs throughout the world such as Hewlett-Packard, Acer, Packard Bell and others continue to recognize Asetek as the preferred thermal management solution for their advanced system requirement in markets such as gaming, workstations, small form factor desktops and others.

The market demand for thermal management is experiencing rapid growth as computing form factors continue to shrink. Asetek's advanced liquid cooling solutions are recognized as the ideal and most elegant solution for these new stringent thermal requirements.

Company to Strengthen U.S. Sales and Marketing

In a related announcement, Asetek announced that it will expand its sales and marketing activities in San Jose, California.

The plan calls for all sales, marketing and business development activities to be driven from the United States. Engineering and other key functions will continue to be led from the highly specialized Danish thermal competence center. Supply Chain management will expand to include new facilities at Asetek's new Xiamen facility in China.

According to Eriksen, "Our global marketing and sales operations along with parts of our executive management team have been located in San Jose since the beginning of 2008. This `relocation' is really the culmination of a long-term strategy to be a true global player in the liquid cooling and thermal management arena by effectively distributing our various centers of excellence to better serve our customers."

Asetek currently has offices in the United States, Denmark, Taiwan, and China.
