PITTSBURGH, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HyperActive Technologies, the leading provider of outdoor restaurant technology acquired by the Acrelec Group, is changing its name to Acrelec America.

Our name change presents a very clear message that we are expanding our portfolio to include the full suite of digital technology, both indoor and outdoor, and across many industry sectors," said Scott Marentay, chief operating officer for Acrelec America. "While we are changing our name, we remain committed to our spirit of innovation and our passion for serving our customers."
