Vertiv announced the expansion of its factory in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, to support its integrated modular solutions (IMS), low voltage switchgear and busway businesses. The latest addition will help the company proactively address the increasing demand for Vertiv products and services.
This new facility will be strategic in Vertiv’s manufacturing network for its global business operations and it is strategically located to cater to the needs of customers in the Middle East, Africa, Australia, and South Asia regions. The site is an extension of the existing E+I Powerbar Gulf factory, providing an additional 5,700 sqm of indoor space serving as a production and office area.
Giordano Albertazzi, CEO, Vertiv, said “I couldn’t be prouder to see the Vertiv fundamentals of high-performance culture and innovation being brought to life in this new addition in UAE. This expansion allows us to better support our growing customer base in multiple countries, with solutions that are critical to on-going digital transformation. We will continue to strengthen our capabilities to innovate with and for, our customers.”
Adrian Sheridan, director of Powerbar Gulf, Vertiv, commented “The addition of the new factory space demonstrates the importance of serving the region. Vertiv is continuously striving to roll out the latest and most innovative technology solutions to support its clients.”
The new factory will manufacture a series of power distribution and continuity solutions, including:
- Low-voltage (LV) switchgear, which ensures a continuous flow of the electricity required to support hybrid workforces, power business operations, and deliver digital products and services. All LV switchgear is custom-built using a modular design that can be configured to suit site requirements.
- Vertiv Powerbar iMPB busway system that allows businesses to cost-effectively optimize and adapt power distribution infrastructure over time, maximizing availability with continuous power delivery to critical loads.
- Prefabricated modular solutions which offer a complete turnkey package for data centers. Fully assembled power modules are engineered, built, and tested in manufacturing facilities, ready to be installed on-site as a complete pre-integrated unit.
In November 2021, Vertiv completed the acquisition of E+I Engineering Ireland Limited, and its affiliate Powerbar Gulf LLC based in Ras Al Khaimah, to further strengthen its portfolio of offerings for data centers and other critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions around the world.
