Vertiv is a global provider of mission-critical infrastructure technologies for vital applications in data centres, communication networks, and commercial and industrial environments.

Teams throughout Australia celebrated becoming Vertiv following the rebranding from Emerson Network Power. Platinum Equity acquired the business from Emerson in a transaction valued over $4 billion.

The new company, being led by Australia and New Zealand managing director Robert Linsdell, will focus on providing the highest quality of mission-critical technologies for vital applications in data centres throughout the A/NZ region.

As well as the official rebrand, Rob Johnson has been appointed as the new CEO of Vertiv.
