The acquired brands manufacture enclosure products for data center and broadcast environments.

The Optima EPS operation of ELMA had acquired the APW Mayville and Stantron brand cabinets from Mayville Products Corp. The APW Mayville brand primarily serves data center environments and the Stantron brand primarily serves broadcast applications.

ELMA provides embedded computer and technology solutions; its Optima EPS operation manufactures cabinets, desktop/wall-mount enclosures, rack-mount chassis, consoles/desk and specialty instrument carts, serving a number of applications and user types.

Dan Eder, owner of Mayville Products Corp., commented, "Stantron and APW Mayville found the perfect home. ELMA and Optima EPS provide expertise and a path for the future for Stantron and APW Mayville."

Optima EPS describes its business as customizing cabinets and enclosures based on customers' specific needs, which can include harsh environments, military use, reinforcement for seismic events, shielding against electromagnetic interference and protection against fire or heat. ELMA Americas president Fred Ruegg commented on the acquisition, "These newest assets demonstrate ELMA's commitment to providing rock-solid infrastructure to broadcast, communications, military, data centers and many other industries."
