SANDSTON, VA--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2015) - Anord Critical Power, Inc., a leading independent provider of critical-power infrastructure to the global data center industry, today announced that it has been recognized in The Channel Company's annual CRN Data Center 100 list. The company was recognized for its AMS 4b Type 7 switchgear that provides channel partners with an opportunity to grow their business by offering an innovative power solution to mission-critical facility needs.

The companies included in CRN's Data Center 100 list were chosen based on a variety of criteria, including the types of technology and services they make available to partners as well as their overall impact on the market and the channel. This year's list honors Anord for its recently UL listed AMS Form 4b Type 7 switchgear. The offering impressed judges with its higher-level arc containment ability that delivers improved performance to arc flash standards and the switchgear's smaller footprint that allows mission-critical facilities to leverage more space for revenue-generating purposes.

"The Data Center 100 list focuses on the contributions of those vendors whose technologies enable the channel partner community to strategically and profitably drive greater innovation, efficiency and productivity in the data center," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "At the helm of these leading-edge companies are forward-thinking executives who are envisioning and architecting the data centers of tomorrow. We applaud their accomplishments and anticipate their continued contributions to our dynamic industry."

"The AMS Form b Type 7 switchgear has proven to be a valuable asset to many data centers throughout Europe and is now quickly gaining momentum in the U.S. market," said Rob Sweaney, Vice President of Operations and General Manager, Anord Critical Power. "We are proud of our unique value proposition to the data center market and honored by CRN's recognition."
