Uninterruptible Power Supplies Limited (UPSL), a subsidiary of Kohler Co. and the exclusive supplier of PowerWAVE UPS, generator and emergency lighting products, is changing its name to Kohler Uninterruptible Power (KUP), effective March 4, 2019.
Amongst the changes will be updates to its legal name, logo and website URL, which will change to www.kohler-ups.co.uk.
UPSL’s name change is designed to ensure the company’s name reflects the true breadth of the business’ current offer, which now extends to UPS systems, generators, emergency lighting inverters and 24/7 service, as well as highlighting its membership of Kohler Co. This is especially timely, as next year, Kohler will celebrate 100 years of supplying products for power generation and protection.
The UPSL name was first adopted more than two decades ago and has achieved recognition across the UK for innovative products and service excellence. As a result of the rebrand, customers and partners will continue to benefit from best-in-class power protection solutions and customer satisfaction levels, as well as the advantages of KUP’s closer integration into the Kohler Co.
David Renton, Managing Director for UPSL/KUP, commented, “It is 10 years since we became a part of Kohler Co., and in that period, we have seen the UPS market and our business develop significantly, both in the UK and overseas. Our membership of the Kohler Co. organisation, one of the largest privately-held US companies, gives us significant benefits in terms of financial stability, infrastructure and world class management and employee development processes. So as Kohler Co. approaches its 100th anniversary in power products and as we now supply much more than uninterruptible power supplies, the name change feels absolutely right.”
He continued, “The rise of digitalisation and the rapid adoption of several new technologies, such as Edge and the Internet of Things (IoT), creates countless opportunities for us as a business. With the commitment of our incredible team and the support of our parent company, we see major opportunities to broaden our portfolio further and take a leading position at the forefront of these exciting developments in the coming years.”
