Switzerland-based CENTIEL is developing a new manufacturing facility in the country with the aim of “quadrupling” its production of UPS systems.
The company said the new plant in Lugano will also become its global headquarters and house R&D, production, final test, sales and marketing, logistics and quality control.
CENTIEL founder Filippo Marbach said the group’s performance over 2017 and forecasts for the future indicated the company “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,” Marbach said.
Co-founder and global sales director Gerado Lecuona said the switch to the new facility is planned for completion by September 2018. “By the end of 2018 we expect to have added another four to six subsidiaries across the world,” he added.
CENTIEL recently launched new 25kW and 60kW UPS modules for its pioneering 4th generation modular UPS system CumulusPower.
“This industry leading three-phase, modular system is now offered with 20% more power density,” CENTIEL said. “These new modules complete the family which also includes 10kW, 20kW and 50kW options.”
