CBS ArcSafe® Acquires MarTek Limited

CBS ArcSafe®, a leading manufacturer of remote racking and switching solutions for low- and medium-voltage switchgear, has acquired select assets of MarTek Limited. This includes MarTek’s Chicken Switch®, which is designed to remotely operate control switches and low- and medium-voltage circuit breakers. Also included are the company’s products that remotely rack common circuit breakers and motor control centers (MCCs), in addition to remote operators for disconnect handles on a variety of MCCs.

MarTek’s products will strengthen CBS ArcSafe’s ability to provide customers with quality products that increase the safety of technicians and service personnel. MarTek will also benefit from larger sales and service support offered by the Group CBS, Inc., family of affiliate companies. Although MarTek will operate as CBS ArcSafe, it will continue operations at its facility in Charleston, WV, with existing personnel under the direction of MarTek principal Russ Safreed, PE.
