RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2014) - Anord Critical Power, Inc., a U.S. subsidiary of Ireland-based Anord, a leading independent provider of critical power infrastructure to the global data center industry, today announced the appointment of industry veteran Kris Morgheim as the company's new Project Manager. Morgheim will leverage a decade of service, commissioning, and engineering experience within the datacenter marketplace to lead the company's testing and application engineering projects as well as providing high level service to mission critical facilities.

"With more than four decades in the switchgear industry, our technology has formed the core power foundation for some of the top industries worldwide," said Alan McCartney, Director of Sales for Anord Critical Power, Inc. "In our continued focus on the burgeoning U.S. datacenter market, Kris' industry expertise will help ensure our expanding national sales fulfill our customers' specific needs and are delivered on time and budget."

Anord Critical Power's offering to the U.S. market is unique due to the Form 4b Type 7 design of its AMS switchgear, which provides a compact, fully compartmentalized and robust switchgear product for mission critical applications. The AMS switchgear allows datacenters to invest in superior power system protection, system fault resilience and enhanced operator safety for their facilities.

"Anord's offering to the U.S. datacenter sector comes at a pivotal time when power and energy expenses are a rising concern for operators. Anord's presence in America has already made an impact -- providing the power and automation tools datacenters demand to accelerate their infrastructures," said Kris Morgheim, Project Manager, Anord. "I'm very excited to be a part of the Anord U.S. team, and look forward to providing project management and services for national customers."

Morgheim's announcement comes on the heels of Anord's recently launched U.S. headquarters in Henrico County, Virginia, and an investment of nearly $1 million to develop a full scale manufacturing facility to introduce the U.S. datacenter sector to its robust AMS Switchgear products. The company has been hailed for contributing to Virginia's long-term economic sustainability by creating new job opportunities as well as using the state's supply chain partners to provide components for integration in its products.
