Cupertino Electric Purchases California Data Center Design Group

Jun 18, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Construction and engineering company, Cupertino Electric, announced that it has acquired data center design and commissioning consulting firm California Data Center Design Group (CDCDG).

According to a release, CDCDG brings more than 20 years of consulting experience to bolster Cupertino Electric's current data center offerings.

"For the last 20 years, CDCDG has built a rock-solid reputation in the data center industry as the premier data center design and commissioning firm," said John Boncher, president and chief executive officer of Cupertino Electric. "CDCDG's widely-respected design and commissioning expertise coupled with Cupertino Electric's nearly 60 years of successful construction project execution unites the best of both worlds. Together, we will offer expanded, high-quality and high-performance data center services to customers to continually drive innovation in the industry." Under terms of the acquisition, the Company said CDCDG and its five principals will operate as an independent division of Cupertino Electric to promote the technology and vendor agnostic role that CDCDG plays in the data center industry. CDCDG will retain its name and brand identity, while leveraging the resources and infrastructure of Cupertino Electric. New services available to CDCDG customers following the Cupertino Electric acquisition include enhanced budgeting, scheduling and constructability assessments. CDCDG will continue to provide services to international clients located in Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East.

"There are not many companies in the industry that we would consider joining forces with because they simply do not truly share our same commitment to innovation, integrity and quality," said Rich Greco, managing principal at CDCDG. "Starting from the day I met Chief Technology Officer Rudy Bergthold in 1999 and was introduced to Cupertino Electric, the company has always represented that unique blend of honesty and technical excellence that we at CDCDG believe is critical to any successful data center project. The strong resources and infrastructure that accompany every Cupertino Electric project will enable us to expand our offerings to new and existing CDCDG customers. We could not have picked a better partner to complement our capabilities, while still retaining our independent spirit." More information: ((Comments on this story may be sent to
