Cannon Technologies, the award-winning international leader in innovative containment and 19” cabinet systems, has announced a landmark distribution agreement with Polyrack Tech-Group, the leading German manufacturer of subracks, cases and packaging solutions for electronic equipment. The deal allows Cannon Technologies to exclusively supply Polrack’s diverse product range to customers across the UK and Ireland.
Polyrack produces both standard and customised electronic packaging including subracks, cases, system desktop and rack-mount products, microcomputer packaging, industrial PC applications, PC panel systems, thermoplastic injection moulded components and plug-in-modules. Its products are used extensively within the communications, broadcast, security and defence, transportation, utilities and medical sectors, as well as in a wide range of test and measurement environments. The owner-managed company has 330 employees.
‘We are delighted to be working more closely with Polyrack, a company that shares our ethos of pioneering design and manufacturing excellence,’ commented Cannon Technologies’ managing director, Matthew Goulding. ‘This exciting strategic partnership will allow us to offer our customers a complete electronic packaging solution and both companies will benefit from enhanced market penetration and sales. I am particularly looking forward to seeing our products used in a variety of new environments and further increasing our presence in mainland Europe.’
Cannon Technologies is renowned all over the world thanks to innovations such as its T4 Data Centre Solutions range and its Free Form Aisle Cocooning system, which recently received the 2013 European Technology Innovation Leadership Award in Racks and Cabinets from Frost & Sullivan. The company is driven by a determination to address the issues facing end users through constant research and development, and the effective leverage of cutting edge technologies.
The Polyrack portfolio is immediately available through Cannon Technologies, which will dispatch standard product stock from a European distribution centre and can deal with custom product requirements.
Commenting on the prospect of working together, Ulrich Rapp, international sales manager at Polyrack Tech-Group, said, ‘Cannon Technologies’ dominance in the data centre, telecommunications and enterprise networking sectors perfectly complements our own enviable reputation in the field of electronic packaging. By joining forces we are now able to present a complete solution, which enables us to serve the market in the UK and Ireland even more efficiently.’
