Efacec will change its name to Advanced Control Systems Inc. (ACS) and will operate as an independent portfolio company of the North American T&D Group (NATDG).

"ACS will continue to deliver and support its entire portfolio of existing products, and NATDG is committed to providing the resources to keep ACS on its path of growth and innovation to serve an expanding worldwide customer base," says David Pacyna, CEO of NATDG.
