Further Secures Leadership in Load Bank Rental and Service Unveils New Products, Drives Global Footprint
Owings, MD, January 17, 2013 – Further sparking its leadership in load bank rentals and service, ComRent, today announced the company delivered a record 2012 – featuring new products, an expanded management team, and an enhanced global footprint. Based on this success, the company was named to Inc. Magazine’s exclusive “2012 Fast 500/5000" list for the sixth year in a row.
ComRent has become the market’s premier load bank solutions and technology provider for testing mission-critical power generation systems. The load bank rental technology is used by data centers, hospitals, utilities, wastewater treatment plants and oil and gas industries for a range of AC and DC load testing. The company’s unique Cx Monitor is the first integrated technology designed for data center commissioning, while the revolutionary DayCor® Corona Camera permits users to identify corona damage in daylight with extreme accuracy.
Central to the company’s success was the introduction of a new, custom-engineered load bank solution – offering a more efficient method of testing water-cooled equipment in data centers. The EXLS is the industry’s first in-aisle, water-cooled server simulator load bank, conducting end-to-end electrical and thermal testing of both the chiller and chilled water loop.
“Led by unwavering support for our customers, ComRent has always been committed to testing and validating their most sophisticated electrical power systems– keeping important commissioning and testing projects on track. This year was no different, as we stepped up our technology and racked up numerous industry awards," said Clayton Taylor, Founder and Chairman of ComRent. “Based on overwhelming customer demand, we’ll continue to raise the bar for the load bank market in 2013."
Taking its leadership one step further, the company also announced major agreements with Aggreko and Poit Energia during the year. The agreement with Aggreko led to a seamless commissioning solution for wind farm power testing. Covering the United States and Canada, the deal enables both companies to provide complex wind turbine commissioning services – saving significant time and money for owners and operators. ComRent also drove international expansion with a new service center in Brazil – based on a partnership with Poit Energia, the market leader in rental generators and temporary infrastructure in Latin America.
Strengthening its management team in 2012, ComRent named industry visionary Raul Martinez as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) in April and further expanded his responsibilities when he was named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in December. An industry veteran, Martinez was responsible for accelerating the company’s North American growth during the year while aligning key strategic initiatives to sales goals.
Continued Taylor, “Raul is a great example of the commitment and passion delivered by our entire staff every day. That’s the primary reason we’ve been recognized across a broad range of industry experts during the year."
ComRent’s 15-year anniversary in 2012 was marked by significant honors from the media. Inc. Magazine recognized the company for the sixth straight year in its “Inc. 500/5000 list" – pegging it as one of America’s fastest-growing companies. Additionally, the team was announced as the “Gold Winner" in the Golden Bridge Awards Program for the company’s wind farm power testing solution – representing excellence in green, eco-friendly and cleans technology innovation.
