Valued Customers: 

Last year I communicated to you regarding Emerson’s announcement to spin off or sale Emerson Network Power. Today, they have announced the sale to Platinum Equity and I wanted to share with you a few of my thoughts.

First, reference the letter from Scott Barbour, President of Emerson Network Power and Executive Vice President, Emerson presenting his thoughts. I believe his statements will instill confidence in the future of Emerson Network Power as we progress from a leading brand within Emerson to a company standing on its own.

Second, if you visit the Emerson website and review the financials Mr. Farr presented yesterday, you will realize Emerson Network Power is a profitable entity, and growing in the telecom/data center industry with the movement to support the Cloud, Colo’s, Data Centers and Edge Computing.

Third, over the last year we have introduced to the market more products that are Energy Star Certified and product leaders within their application. These include eXM, eXL, APS and GXT4 UPS’s, along with the new MPH2 power strips, DCE Racks, Smart Row, and Smart Solutions. All of our Thermal Management Systems have been designed to exceed the DOE standards. We have introduced the PDX, DS, and DSE system and have expanded our iCOM Controls with Custom Air Handlers, and enhanced our In Row Cooling. Additionally, we have continued to support the monitoring of these systems with Nform, SiteScan, and Trellis.

Change is happening very fast in our industry and I believe this will be very advantageous for all. As the entire new organization will be focused on supporting critical environments, communications through our products, services and software designed to meet your needs and support your organizations. Thank you and if you have any questions or wish to discuss, please call or email me.
