Eaton’s A/NZ 2019 partner award winners

12 Apr 2019

Power management company Eaton celebrated the achievements of its PowerAdvantage channel partners in Australia and New Zealand at an awards night held as part of its inaugural LeverEDGE power quality partner conference in Sydney.

Eaton A/NZ power quality general manager John Atherton says the awards were an opportunity to recognise partner achievements across the region following the relaunch of its PowerAdvantage Partner program and portal earlier this year. 

“Eaton is committed to supporting and celebrating our power quality channel as it focuses on maximising edge computing opportunities which is top of mind for our partners as 5G networks continue to take shape,” Atherton says.

“We applaud the efforts of all partners including our inspirational award recipients who performed exceptionally well last year, delivering great value and service to Eaton and our customers.”

Natural Power Solutions received the Certified Partner of the Year Award for Australia and also celebrated its 20 years partnership anniversary with Eaton.

“Today is a proud day for us to represent Eaton across Australia and continue on that journey of delivering for our customers.”

New Era IT, who picked up the award for New Zealand’s Authorised Partner of the Year said partnering with Eaton has greatly increased their sales.
