CENTIEL Appoints Mike Elms as Managing Director
Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL SA, has appointed Mike Elms as managing director of its UK subsidiary, CENTIEL UK Ltd. Elms, who first joined the company as sales and marketing director last year, has more than 25 years’ experience in the UPS industry and will now have overall responsibility for driving the UK business forwards as part of CENTIEL’s global expansion plans.
Mike Elms, managing director, CENTIEL UK explains: “I am, and always have been, an unashamed fan of the modular UPS concept. Its flexible, scalable nature combined with high efficiency in a small footprint continues to lead the industry. And now CENTIEL’s 4th generation, three-phase, true modular UPS system: CumulusPower takes this to another level, offering: “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability and lowest total cost of ownership through its high online operating efficiency and Maximum Efficiency Management (MEM) system. I am excited about working with the CENTIEL team to bring CumulusPower and our full product range to the market.
“Last year there was a real focus on putting the right building blocks in place within CENTIEL UK,” continues Elms. “For example, we took on four more sales staff and their success at introducing our industry leading UPS solutions means we are currently recruiting more engineers and growing our team further. 2019 will be an important year for CENTIEL, as we continue to increase the scope and range of our UPS solutions, to offer the most available, flexible and reliable systems to protect the critical power needs on behalf of our customers.
“During 12-13 March we will be demonstrating our new Li-ion battery solution for the first time at Data Centre World, on booth D1035. In addition, we will show CumulusPower plus the extensions to our range of stand-alone UPS: PremiumTower, ideally suited to applications where minimizing total cost of ownership is a significant factor. So why not come and meet the team? Our experts will be delighted to have a no obligation discussion about the pros and cons of alternative UPS configurations and how they could apply to your facility’s individual requirements.”
CumulusPower has now been installed in datacenters and comms rooms in over 60 countries across 5 continents with more than 50 MW of critical power loads now protected in locations across the world including: the UK, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic and the Channel Islands…and continues to grow.
