XtremeMac Spins Off Pro Division to Gizmac
XrackPro and XtroVERT business unit sold to Gizmac; XtremeMac to Focus on iPod Market
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL APRIL 19, 2005 - XtremeMac, the premier accessory manufacturer for Apple Computer's iPod, today announced that in an effort to focus all of its resources on the iPod market, it has sold its line of pro server products to Gizmac, LLC. The highly popular XrackPro and XtroVERT server products, will now be marketed and sold by Gizmac. XrackPro and XtroVERT comprise XtremeMac’s pro solutions business unit. Gizmac, an Apple-centric accessory company, is led by Tim Cave, one of the original founders of XtremeMac and co-creator of the pro product line.
“Now that Gizmac has acquired our pro solutions business unit, XtremeMac can focus solely on the iPod market and fulfill our commitment to bringing the best iPod accessories to the industry,” said Gary Bart, president and CEO of XtremeMac. “Gizmac is a good fit for our pro line as Tim has personal knowledge of the product as one of its original creators."
Tim Cave created Gizmac as a privately held separate entity to provide for expanded support of pro customers and as such is no longer associated with XtremeMac.
Effective immediately, Gizmac assumes full control and responsibility for all sales, manufacturing, marketing, customer service, warranty and technical support for the XrackPro and XtroVERT, and the pro products will no longer bear the XtremeMac brand.
XrackPro is a Noise Reduction Enclosure specifically designed for Apple's Xserve and Xserve RAID. The solidly built XrackPro provides 12U (21.0") of industry standard 19" rackmount space in a desk-height enclosure quiet enough to work next to.
XtroVERT is a vertical enclosure for Apple’s Xserve RAID. XtroVERT allows users who have neither the space nor the need for a 19" rack to utilize the power of Xserve RAID.
Information on XrackPro and XtroVERT can be found at www.xrackpro.com.
