Niche distributor and manufacturer, Rack World Systems (RWS), has inked a new deal to supply rack-mount cases from Pelican Hardigg.
RWS will carry the 19-inch range of Black Box ruggedised roto-moulded cases specifically built for transportation of 19-inch rack-mount servers or electronic equipment.
“It means a great deal for us and it closes a niche market for us,” RWS sales manager, Joseph Bourbon, said. “We do have products that relate to the 19-inch cabinet industry but we didn’t have these portable 19-inch racks and we were getting quite a few enquiries about them, but we just weren’t able to help clients out.
“With this deal, we’re able to move on and provide a full range of 19-inch cabinets and accessories.”
The product is suitable for a range of applications including field deployment of IT equipment, audio/video recording and processing systems, satellite and radio communication systems, Seismic data recording instrumentation and climate data collection.
Bourbon said he had a lot of requests for the technology from customers in the defence industry and was on the hunt for more resellers and IT installers in the power and mining markets. RWS is national company with resellers in every state.
“We’re trying to grow this part of the market successfully,” Bourbon said. The company is in growth mode and plans to hire more staff this year.
“We’re looking for sales staff to help grow the company in the future,” he added. “As the business grows more we’ll look at warehousing and distribution staff.”
