Anord established new partnership agreements with eSite Systems, Wavetech Associates, Aerico Inc. and Critical Components Inc. as regional manufacturers' representatives. In addition, the company continued to share their industry thought leadership and showcase its unique switchgear offering at such notable events as: POWER-GEN International, 7x24 Exchange Fall and Spring Conferences, Electric Expo 2015, Datacenter Dynamics Converged, and Uptime Institute Symposium.

In 2016, Anord will announce a new line of critical power distribution products with unique and market identifying characteristics.
