CENTIEL Aims to Quadruple UPS Production
Volumes with Brand New Manufacturing Facility
S
wiss-based UPS manufacturer,
CENTIEL SA, has announced it
aims to quadruple UPS
production
volumes
with
the
development of a new manufacturing
facility
located
in
Lugano,
Switzerland. The new factory will
become CENTIEL SA’s global
headquarters and will house R&D,
production, final test, sales and
marketing, logistics, finance in
addition to quality control of all
CENTIEL’s UPS solutions.
Filippo Marbach, founder of CENTIEL
SA explains: “Based upon the demand
we experienced in 2017 and the growth
we are already seeing this year for our
4th generation UPS technology, plus our
projected forecasts, it became clear that
we would outgrow our existing factory by
the end of the year. Our new factory will
enable us to quadruple production
volumes and we are already future
planning to increase production capacity
even further in 2020/21.”
Gerado Lecuona, co-founder and global
sales director, CENTIEL SA confirms:
“Despite being a young company, only
founded in April 2015, CENTIEL’s rapid
worldwide expansion is a result of the
vast knowledge and experience of our
key people. Many in the global market
already know CENTIEL’s team from their
previous work. For example: in the
early-90s, transformerless technology
was pioneered by Filippo Marbach and
his design team. Mr. Marbach was also
the driving force behind the design and
development of the first fully
decentralized
three
phase,
hot
swappable, modular UPS. It is this same
design team that are now working
together again, continuing their passion
for technological innovation at CENTIEL
SA.”
Lecuona continues: “The factory move,
planned for completion by September
2018, will give us both the additional
space we need to increase our capacity
and also maintain our existing
excellence in logistics and speed of
delivery. It will also further improve our
training and demonstration facilities for
customers plus our ever-growing
network of channel partners and
subsidiaries. By the end of 2018 we
expect to have added another four to six
subsidiaries across the world.”
Marbach concludes: “Significant effort
has been put into CENTIEL’s pre and
post-sales support infrastructure to
ensure it delivers class leading service
across the globe. When your solutions
are deployed in the Arctic Circle and in
the deserts and rain forests of the world,
delivering excellence consistently
requires considerable organization and
resources. However, we are passionate
about supporting our clients and
ensuring their power is always protected
regardless of their location. We are
looking forward to broadening and
deepening the company’s product range
further before the end of 2018.”
CENTIEL has recently launched new
25kW and 60kW UPS modules for its
pioneering 4th Generation Modular UPS
system: CumulusPowerTM.
This
industry leading three-phase, modular
system is now offered with 20% more
power density. These new modules
complete the family which also includes:
10kW, 20kW and 50kW options.
CENTIEL also offers: PremiumTowerTM
a stand-alone version ideally suited to
applications where minimising total cost
of ownership is a significant factor,
offering the ultimate in UPS flexibility.
