Panduit is looking back on a successful 2012 as the year comes to an end, and looking forward to an even better 2013.
While the year was off to a great start, things really started heating up in May when Panduit took part in an Ethernet Alliance (News
) Interoperability Demonstration with six other leading tech companies. The demonstration was a great opportunity for Panduit to show off its enterprise solutions
, including its unified physical infrastructure data center solutions. A month later, the company became a platinum sponsor in the Cisco (News
) Live event, which draws leading tech experts from around the globe.
In August, Panduit announced that it acquired the leading energy, power and environmental management solutions
provider, Unite Technologies. The acquisition was a big step to further strengthen Panduit’s unified physical infrastructure, as Unite Technologies is also a leader in security and environmental monitoring, which are of great value in Panduit’s enterprise solutions.
More alliances were made in October when Panduit joined up with Rockwell Automation (News
) and Pentair, two companies that are also industry leaders in automation and equipment protection.
But there were losses in 2012 – Panduit’s founder, Jack Caveney Sr., passed away in November. He made certain that the company was in good hands with son John Caveney as the CEO and Tom Donovan as president. Jack Caveney Sr. made certain that the future of Panduit would not only remain stable, but would thrive.
Panduit also made significant strides in 2012 to continue to provide industry-leading enterprise solutions like the end-to-end turnkey systems
that allow companies to converge their building networks into one IP network, getting the owners and operators of buildings on a path to reduce their costs while bringing efficiencies and value to the workplace experience.
Companies seeking more floor-level control as they planned an integration
of building automation systems wanted to maintain the security of their operations. Panduit’s Telecommunications Room (TR) continues to be a go-to solution that enables the integration that companies are looking for as more work is being transferred from the over-burdened IT staff to the TR.
With converged applications running throughout an entire facility and multiple-building enterprises extending the reach of the IP and non-IP networks, it’s bringing added layers of security and efficiencies that save money. The building automation enterprise solutions from Panduit cover vital areas including cameras for surveillance, AV devices, energy management, fire and safety controls, climate controls and wireless communications.
Communications innovations will continue to evolve into 2013 and the enterprise solutions available today will only improve tomorrow. Panduit is sure to be there, leading the way in development and bringing to market those solutions that meet the very real needs of the dynamic organization.
