NWS Named North American Distributor for Ireland’s KelTech IoE

Durham, N.C., Feb. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Full-service telecommunications materials, logistics, warehousing and kitting company NWS has reached an agreement to become the North American distributor for KelTech IoE, a Dublin, Ireland-based telecommunications equipment and solutions provider.

The deal, approved by both companies on Jan. 11, gives NWS a direct relationship with an up-and-coming manufacturer of innovative, energy efficient telecommunications equipment, including vaults and enclosures. The two companies expect to show together for the first time at the Connect (X) trade show being held May 8-10 in New Orleans.

As part of the agreement, KelTech products will be stocked by NWS at its main distribution facility in Carrollton, Texas.

“This partnership deepens our relationship with a very forward-thinking telecom manufacturer,” said Sam Clark, chief revenue officer of NWS. “They are a leader in innovative active and passive equipment for wireless and wireline applications, with an emphasis on developing creative ways to achieve sustainability and net zero energy efficiency. We are excited about the new types of solutions that the addition of KelTech will bring to our customers.”

KelTech IoE “looks forward to partnering and innovating with NWS in accelerating our business growth across the North American market,” said Mark Kellett, CEO of KelTech. “Their expertise allows them to quickly deliver equipment and support to carriers, project managers, and general contractors exactly when it is needed.”

The Durham, North Carolina-based company also offers services in cell site development, inventory management, and material distribution.

Founded in 2012, NWS is a portfolio company of Grain Management, LLC, a leading Washington, D.C.-based investment firm focused on the global communications sector. Grain Management acquired NWS in 2021. Both NWS and Grain Management are Certified Minority Business Enterprises.
