January 10, 2014 – Schneider Electric says it has acquired Barcelona, Spain-based AST Modular, which offers a portfolio of “prefabricated data centre modules, services, manufacturing expertise and project engineering support”.

“Schneider Electric’s global presence, world-class power, cooling and data centre infrastructure management solutions—backed up by an excellent service network—will be a major benefit for our customers,” said Henry Daunert, CEO of AST Modular.
