Anixter to Distribute Emerson Network Power's Liebert Products in New Zealand

  • 27 August, 2009 16:04

<p>Emerson Network Power , a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, has appointed Anixter as a distribution partner for its Liebert UPS power protection, racking, switching and monitoring products in New Zealand and Australia.</p>
<p>The two companies already work closely together in other parts of the world, so the agreement is a “good fit” for the local operations in terms of corporate synergies and go-to-market strategy, according to Anixter managing director, Wayne Bogart.</p>
<p>“We’ve built a strong business in the region around specialist skills in structured cabling for power and data, with a focus on communications, security and switching systems,” says Bogart. “It therefore makes sense that we partner with the leaders in these fields.”</p>
<p>Emerson Network Power’s Australia and New Zealand managing director David Scott says that Emerson’s portfolio of products and services perfectly complement and support Anixter’s core product sets.</p>
<p>“Anixter has a loyal and experienced channel which will further extend our penetration into the smaller computer and server rooms,” says Scott. “We’ve traditionally lead from the front in the larger data centres, developing new technologies that markedly reduce the energy draw and environmental emissions in some of the world’s foremost IT infrastructure facilities. Our latest technologies are designed for data centres and computer rooms, a fast-growing market for both organisations in the region.”</p>
<p>The agreement comes into effect today. For more information, or to find out how your business can work with Anixter and Emerson, contact Anixter’s Allan Kivell on 027 442 3051.</p>
