Today, Corsair has announced that they have acquired certain assets of Raptor Gaming in order to get a better hold in retail sales. Raptor Gaming has a strong retail presence in Germany, the largest market for video gaming in Europe, and this is what Corsair hopes to be able to do with this acquisition.
Corsair has acquired from Raptor Gaming its full product portfolio of keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories. These new products will be used in a new line alongside of Corsair's currently existing Vengeance gaming products. Raptor Gaming executives CEO Dirk Schunk and COO Heinz-Dieter Ludwig will work with Corsair to ensure a smooth transition.
"Corsair and Raptor share the same goal, bringing best-in-class PC hardware to gamers around the world," said Andy Paul, President and CEO of Corsair. "Raptor Gaming's strong retail presence will allow us to offer a wider range of PC hardware to gamers across Germany."
"As gamers ourselves, we formed the Raptor Gaming business to create high-performance PC gear to give gamers the absolute best gaming experience," said Dirk Schunk, CEO of Raptor Gaming. "Corsair's strong global brand and worldwide distribution will open up Raptor Gaming products to a wider audience of gamers around the world."
