In pics: Vertiv's New Zealand launch party

18 May 17

Vertiv (formerly Emerson Network Power) officially celebrated its New Zealand opening last week at a launch party at the Soul Bar and Grill in Auckland, which attracted customers and partners from all over the country and from Australia.

Last month the company launched its new branding across New Zealand and Australia, and Vertiv Asia’s president Anand Sanghi said that the region’s history is important to the company.

“We have a rich and proud history here in the region and now with the launch of Vertiv, we look forward to serving our customers with greater agility and focus,” he said at the time.

While the name has changed, its core functions, including data centre, communication and commercial and industrial services stay the same throughout the entire company.

Vertiv’s ANZ managing director Robert Linsdell says the company will concentrate on its data centre, colocation, banking, government and manufacturing industries. 

“With our micro data centres and turnkey data centres built with intelligent monitoring capabilities, we are well-positioned to support our customers in this growing market.”
