Expands connectivity infrastructure offering for the New Zealand market.
Auckland based company AC Technologies Limited has joined the Warren & Brown Technologies Pty Ltd (WBT) group of companies which is a global leader in telecommunications network and connectivity infrastructure.
Under a new company name, AC-WB Technologies, the business will continue to provide customers with the outstanding level of technical support with which they have become accustomed, but with the added benefit of an expanded solution offering.
AC Technologies owner and Managing Director, Brian Barnett will continue in the business ensuring a smooth transition to the new ownership. Brian said, “I have built the business over the last 25 years but I felt the time was right to move the business to the next level, with W&BT being able to add a significant range of solutions that will better serve our New Zealand customers. During the time I have been involved with W&BT it has become increasingly obvious that the cultures of the two businesses are very similar and combined with the synergies that will result, AC-WB Technologies will become instrumental in in improving the competitiveness of our customers”.
WBT is a long established (95 years) and successful manufacturer and supplier of telecommunications network and connectivity infrastructure to telecom operators and Enterprise customers around the globe. With headquarters and extensive operations in Melbourne, Australia, WBT also has offices and manufacturing facilities in the Philippines, India and Vietnam.
Furthermore, with capabilities in product development, 3D printing, advanced manufacturing and technical solution design, AC-WB Technologies will be able to provide the New Zealand telecommunications market with new innovative solutions and excellent customer service.
WBT Managing Director, Mr Neil Domelow said, “We are very excited to be expanding our horizons to New Zealand and look forward to building on the good work carried out by Brian and his team.” Mr Domelow added, “It has been a goal of ours to establish Warren & Brown Technologies in New Zealand and the opportunity to join with such a well respected and successful existing local business is a perfect fit for WBT”. “WBT will bring considerable new technological developments to the AC-WB Technologies customers as a result of W&BT’s involvement with the Australian NBN and being the major supplier of structed cabling, distribution and management infrastructure to Telstra. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial future with our NZ customers”.
