Starline manufacturer participates in a new program that fosters communication and collaboration among technical professionals in the mission critical space

Universal Electric Corporation (UEC), the manufacturer of Starline, the customizable, flexible power distribution and critical metering provider for the data center market, announces its position as a Founding Partner of Infrastructure Masons (IM), a nonprofit organization that was developed to bring together professionals who are responsible for designing, building and/or operating the infrastructure for mission critical environments.

“We are excited to be able to participate as a Founding Partner with the Infrastructure Masons. Our organizations possess similar goals in the development of new technologies and solutions, and promoting best practices in mission critical and data center designs. With innovation as one of our core values, collaborating more closely with the best and brightest people in the industry is going to be extremely rewarding,“ stated Mark Swift, Director of Marketing for Universal Electric Corporation.

UEC has selected to participate in IM because the concepts the organization was founded on deeply resonate with UEC’s own beliefs of giving back and promoting innovation. UEC’s overhead power distribution product, Starline Track Busway, was the first of its kind in the data center market. Track Busway makes it possible to provide power to server racks without a raised floor; eliminating masses of whips and cables and the danger of working with them, decreasing waste and increasing cooling efficiency.

UEC not only believes in developing innovative product solutions, but also in supporting organizations such as Infrastructure Masons that are working toward bettering the economy, environment and society as a whole by inducing collaboration between seasoned professionals in the industry.

”Having UEC participate in IM at the Founding Partner level has been great,” said Mark Monroe, Executive Director of the Infrastructure Masons. “Their support and participation will help IM become a major force within the digital infrastructure industry, providing the foundation for the Internet, helping fellow iMasons to grow, and giving back to the industry and society.”

The world as we know it today is built off of technical infrastructure, and the need for more of it is only going to increase. Infrastructure professionals will continue being the cornerstone of the Information Age, and thus an association where these industry professionals can collaborate and learn from one another will be paramount in creating the most efficient and responsibly designed infrastructure of the future. UEC looks forward to continue participating in and supporting Infrastructure Masons and the organization’s mission.
