The first quarter of 2021 has seen UPS Power Solutions welcome three new team members, signifying even greater support for channel customers – particularly in the electrical and security markets.

The company has established itself as New Zealand’s leading supplier of uninterruptible power supply solutions. Its industry-leading UPS engineering expertise combines with market-leading products from global manufacturers such as Eaton, APC by Schneider Electric, CSB Batteries and Raritan.

Managing Director, Nicky Blackmore says our careful stewardship of the Covid-19 pandemic safeguarded business continuity, with the company minimising impact to customers by ensuring sufficient stock and parts were available and engineering expertise and support was consistently accessible throughout all alert levels.

“By sticking to our long-term strategy we’ve enjoyed significant growth over the last decade and, Covid notwithstanding, have reached our goal to bring in new faces and deliver even more value to our customers,” says Blackmore.

Luana Downing joins as Channel Sales Manager, bringing a wealth of experience in channel sales and customer service, having spent nine years as Commercial Channel Manager with Philips Lighting.

Downing will be primarily responsible for the electrical and IT wholesale and distribution channels, helping ensure product availability and access to UPS engineering expertise is always on hand for New Zealand’s electricians and businesses.

Her experience with large projects across multiple industries also promises additional value for UPS Power Solution’s customers as she reinforces the company’s proven sales and service approach.

Trudy Bartrum – Sales & Service Specialist

Joining Downing at UPS Power Solution’s Auckland branch is newly appointed Sales & Service Specialist, Trudy Bartrum.

Bartrum is responsible for delivering value to the company’s service customers along with a key focus on the Security Industry. Her nine years as National Sales Manager for marine safety specialists, Survitec make her uniquely qualified to further enhance UPS PS’s sales and maintenance services offering.

Finally, the UPS Power Solution’s Wellington branch welcomes Jacinta Hepburn as Accounts Administrator – bolstering the company’s growing administrative team and ensuring all dealings for customers, suppliers and partners remain easy, friendly and rewarding.

“We’re always excited to welcome new people into our UPS family and are delighted that we can take our time to hand-pick the right mix of expertise and attitude to best fit our customers and our team. That the right people for these roles, on this occasion, are all women is a factor of which we are particularly proud.

“Luana, Trudy and Jacinta are all a perfect fit for us and we’re looking forward to introducing them and continuing our commitment to delivering excellence in service, knowledge, support and performance,” says Blackmore.
