UK-based controls specialist to open office in Minneapolis, headed by Richard Raper, USA operations director.
Controls specialist Resource Data Management will begin trading from 2 April.
RDM USA Inc will supply existing and new US customers directly with equipment, technical support and training. The company will also take over responsibility for all warrantees on RDM products previously supplied through US distributor Verisae.
The company is appointing new staff in Minneapolis and at strategic locations across the US, and customers can continue to purchase through Verisae or direct from RDM.
Andrew Chandler, founder and managing director of RDM, says: “We have been very successful in the US to date, and have a proven track record with a growing list of clients in the food retail sector. We now feel the time is right to establish a direct presence alongside our distributor Verisae to make our energy and cost-saving systems available to a wider range of customers across the US.”
He added: “With energy prices continuing on an upward curve, there is a huge opportunity for all those managing property and energy-intensive industrial processes to get energy use under control. RDM’s easy-to-use ‘open’ control and monitoring systems can deliver substantial savings that fall straight to the bottom line.”
