2013-03-06. Within the scope of its partner strategy for data centres, Rittal has been successfully supplying ABB’s UPS systems as an OEM version for many years. Now, Rittal and ABB have agreed to deepen their partnership on an international level – to support their growth strategies in this market segment.
In the future, Rittal will deploy 3-phase UPS systems as standard modules from ABB, and will leverage additional local ABB services. "This partnership demonstrates our extensive expertise in providing solutions for data centres and strengthens our sales activities and services in local markets," states Christoph Caselitz, Chief of Customer Operations at Rittal. UPS systems are key components of data centres. ABB’s product, for example, forms part of RiMatrix S – the modular, standardised data centre that Rittal is unveiling at this year’s CeBIT.
"ABB and Rittal enjoy a long and successful partnership. This new move will boost the global growth of both brands in the flexible data centre segment", explains Rainer Weigle, Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, ABB Product Group Power Protection. And by expanding collaboration between ABB and Rittal’s international subsidiaries, both companies will strengthen their competitive edge – for example, by implementing projects for customers in the data centre market with the utmost efficiency.
