Vertiv, a global provider of digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has recently announced significant business growth. The company has expanded its capacity for switchgear, busway, and integrated modular solutions (IMS) by over 100% since acquiring the E&I Engineering and PowerBar Gulf switchgear, busway, and IMS business in November 2021.

Meeting Customer Demands

Vertiv expects to double these capacities by the end of 2025. This strategic growth allows Vertiv to meet the growing customer demand for power infrastructure in data centers, especially in co-location and hyperscale sites, as well as the increasing need for AI and high-performance computing applications. Vertiv has also created over 1,000 new production jobs since acquiring E&I Engineering and PowerBar Gulf.

In the two years since the acquisition, Vertiv has expanded its global production footprint by opening new facilities and increasing production in existing ones. The company plans to continue expanding, aiming to more than double the capacity for switchgear, busbar, and modular power solutions in the next two years. Vertiv's capacity growth is further enhanced by increased utilization and expansion in various regions, including the United States, Mexico, Slovakia, United Arab Emirates, Ireland, and Northern Ireland.

Enhancing Power Management

Vertiv CEO, Giordano Albertazzi, stated that the acquisition of the switchgear and busway business was intended to enhance their power management portfolio for data centers and other critical applications. The current demand, driven by the rapid growth of data traffic and AI, exceeded their expectations at the time of the acquisition. To meet this demand, Vertiv is investing in capacity and scaling its operations globally.

Albertazzi emphasized that the increasing use of AI and high-performance computing requires capacity and innovation across their offering portfolio. Vertiv's strong growth demonstrates its commitment to supporting global digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, contributing to the growth of the tech industry.
