APC (American Power Conversion) by Schneider Electric and Comms Express have been working together for some nine years, and it is a great working relationship with a valued supplier.

We know our clients have been delighted that APC have eradicated any stresses with their protection against downtime, data loss and hardware damage.  A global leader in critical power and cooling services, providing industry leading product, software and systems for home, office, data centre and factory floor applications. They really have set the standard with their solutions in network-critical physical infrastructure.

Founded in 1981 by three electronic power engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology their initial focus was on solar power. However, by 1984, their focus had shifted to UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).

Such was the success of the company, within four years APC were a public held company. Continued development has seen them focus on four key areas:

  • Home/Home Office
  • Business Networks
  • Access Provider Networks
  • Data Centres and Facilities

By keeping such a clear focus, APC have rapidly become the market leader in each of the four fields. With so many companies reliant on their IT and indeed with a focus on paperless management, increased the efficiency of data is essential.

They are a company committed to their corporate mission, which is worth replaying here:

The mission of APC is to create delighted customers by improving the manageability, availability, and performance of information and communication systems through rapid development and delivery of innovative solutions to real customer problems.

It’s wonderful to read the words ‘delighted customers’, an ethos which mirrors ours at Comms and is so, so important for the success of any company, and just so refreshing to see highlighted by such an innovative brand.

In 2007, Schneider Electric acquired APC and combined it with MGE UPS Systems to form Schneider Electric’s Critical Power & Cooling Services Business Unit, with the newly named company continuing on the fine work.
