Corsair Components, a leading designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, on Tuesday announced the acquisition of certain assets of Raptor Gaming, a maker of high-performance PC gaming peripherals headquartered in Heinsberg, Germany. By taking over Raptor, Corsair wants to get even better presence in the European retail.

"Corsair and Raptor share the same goal, bringing best-in-class PC hardware to gamers around the world. Raptor Gaming's strong retail presence will allow us to offer a wider range of PC hardware to gamers across Germany," said Andy Paul, president and chief executive of Corsair.

Raptor Gaming has a strong retail presence in Germany, the largest market for video gaming in Europe, with products widely available in major chains including Media Markt, Saturn, Real, Kaufland, and Conrad. As part of this transaction, Corsair receives Raptor Gaming's full product portfolio of keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories, which will form a new series of gaming products alongside Corsair's existing line of Vengeance PC gaming products. Raptor Gaming executives chief executive officer Dirk Schunk and chief operating officer Heinz-Dieter Ludwig will remain engaged with Corsair to facilitate a smooth transition.

"As gamers ourselves, we formed the Raptor Gaming business to create high-performance PC gear to give gamers the absolute best gaming experience. Corsair's strong global brand and worldwide distribution will open up Raptor Gaming products to a wider audience of gamers around the world," said Dirk Schunk, chief executive officer of Raptor Gaming.
