The distributor says it will be providing the complete range of Eaton power quality products, along with engineering services and a ‘solutions-oriented approach’, to Kiwi industries including data centres, healthcare, aviation and telecommunications.

The partnership program includes intensive engineering training and certification on Eaton’s offerings for UPS Power Solutions, which has offices in Auckland and Wellington with accompanying warehouse facilities.

“UPS Power Solutions has consistently delivered a high standard of service to its customers, giving them access to power where they need it, when they need it,” Atherton says.

Nicky Blackmore, UPS Power Solutions general manager and director, says “Eaton designs and manufactures a wide range of UPS and DC solutions with in-built technical excellence.

“We take their product and add further value by offering customers advantages in terms of on the ground, agile, nationwide engineering services and support.”
