Anord Critical Power Teams With Wavetech Associates to Distribute Mission-Critical Switchgear to Tri-State Area

Partnership With Leading Manufacturer's Rep Enhances Data Center Safety for New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Jan 15, 2015) - Anord Critical Power, Inc., a leading independent provider of critical-power infrastructure to the global data center industry, today announced the company is expanding its presence throughout the Northeast via a newly established partnership with Wavetech Associates, Inc. The new partnership will enable Anord to distribute its award-winning Form 4b Type 7 design AMS switchgear to power mission-critical facilities across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Wavetech Associates is the tri-state area's leading manufacturer's representative, focusing on mission-critical infrastructure support systems with data center power quality products for both industrial and commercial applications. Offering solutions across the total power spectrum, the company's technicians are focused on providing customers with maximum data center uptime.

"Our region is consistently ranked one of the most robust data center markets in the U.S., as such industries as financial services rely on a strong power infrastructure to keep systems running. That's why Anord's switchgear will be so important to our customers," said Jose Alvarez, President of Wavetech Associates, Inc. "With a modern, space-saving design and the highest levels of reliability and safety, Anord technology will help our customers better utilize and optimize their power requirements."

Anord's Form 4b Type 7 design AMS switchgear is a compact, fully compartmentalized and robust switchgear product for mission-critical applications. The AMS switchgear allows data centers to invest in superior power system protection, system fault resilience and enhanced operator safety for their facilities. The AMS switchgear is a recipient of the 2014 infoTECH Spotlight Data Center Excellence Award which recognizes the most innovative and enterprising data center vendors offering infrastructure or software, servers or cooling systems, cabling or management applications.

Anord's technology will play an instrumental role in Wavetech's portfolio -- which ranges from Static Switches, Power Conditioning and Distribution to Cooling, Busway, and UPS Systems. In addition, Wavetech anticipates a 10 percent revenue increase from switchgear sales.

"Delivering reliable, sustainable power to core infrastructures is a priority for today's data center managers. As the cost of downtime has reached new heights, companies must plan to ensure the consistent processing and distribution of data," said John Day, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Anord Critical Power, Inc. "With a proven track-record across the Northeast, Wavetech is a valuable addition to our strong partner community -- introducing an even larger group of clients to the power of Anord."
