Following the success of its authorised distributor partnership with Kohler, WB Power Services has announced the expansion of the arrangement, which now gives the critical power provider exclusive rights to service all data centres in England, Scotland, and Wales.
The agreement, which came into effect at the end of August, is initially in place for the next three years, and – the two companies say – cements the long-standing relationship between WB Power Services and Kohler, ‘a leading provider of engines, generators, and UPS product’s.
As part of the enhanced partnership, Kohler is also recommending that is former dealers in England, Scotland, and Wales, purchase parts directly from WB Power Services. In addition to supporting data centres, WB Power Services will continue supplying all businesses who require Kohler parts – from healthcare providers, to the education and telecoms sectors, and the wider public sector.
WBPS MD, Andy Wilmott, said: “We are proud to be the largest Kohler distributor in Europe, and this agreement cements our long-term partnership. We have worked with Kohler for many years, and now not only are we the UK’s largest authorised distributor, but we will also be supporting dealers with their Kohler spare part requirements. As part of our partnership, we share Kohler’s expertise when it comes to supporting customers looking for generating units, spare parts, or service kits across its full range, providing a seamless experience.”
WBPS provides turnkey critical power infrastructure, from single generators (10 kVA-4.5 MVA+), to large multi-synchronous packages. It has built up a fleet of over 1,000 ‘Rental Compact’ Kohler generators, ‘allowing customers to hire the exact units wanted, for a the time needed’.
