AIMS Power, a global leader in power inverter technologies, has entered into an exclusive distribution partnership with WESCO Distribution in Elkhart, Ind. The team at WESCO will be working with AIMS Power’s national sales team to deliver the Reno, Nev.-based company’s diverse product line of power inverters to the heart of the RV manufacturing world.
“The expansion of the existing business relationship with WESCO into the OEM RV business is a great opportunity for both companies,” said Bruce De Jong, president of AIMS Power. “It will further solidify the long-term partnership between AIMS Power and WESCO Distribution, which makes it a natural fit for both organizations.”
WESCO Midwest District Manager Anthony Wollschlager said the company is “thrilled” to be partnering with AIMS in 2015, adding “AIMS’ innovative designs align well with WESCO’s current product lineup and goal of offering high-quality, single-solution products to the RV sector.”
AIMS Power is a provider DC and AC inverters, chargers, solar panels, deep-cycle batteries, transfer switches, and related green energy products in the United States and worldwide. AIMS Power, a division of the AIMS Corp., is also a direct dealer of KACO New Energy grid-tie inverters.
Sean Nichols, vice president of sales and marketing for AIMS Power, said his company is “excited at the opportunity to work with a Fortune 500 company and with a talented team like WESCO. Their sales professionals are in a great position to be successful with our complete product offering.”
Nichols said the partnership with WESCO allows AIMS Power to “get a better focus on the RV manufacturing side,” an industry the company is looking to for market growth and business expansion. After having developed and perfected reliable inverters over the last 15 years, AIMS Power has about 70 different inverter models that represent a functional and financial benefit to RV OEMs, Nichols added.
“Now that we have so many products, it’s not hard to find one that we have that fits the need exactly, or would only need a few minor adjustments to meet the need,” he explained.
This partnership represents a “good synergy between the two companies,” Nichols added. “They need inverters, and we need them because they have the established distribution network.”
