Gresham Power Electronics the Salisbury based Defence and Commercial power conversion specialist continues its recently announced growth plans with the appointment Wiebe Hart as Sales Manager for power supplies. Wiebe has been active in the electronics industry for over fifteen years and brings a wealth of experience of OEM sales and distribution management.
“I have made the power supply industry my passion and while the electronics design market has many challenges to overcome to push design concepts to market I am really looking forward to growing Gresham’s power supply business in the UK and Europe.”
Gresham Power is now part of Coolisys, the recently formed power, defence and aerospace systems provider, which offers worldwide design and manufacture of power conversion and distribution systems merged into a synergistic “one-company” approach combining the strengths of their various divisions to provide comprehensive solutions that meet the evolving requirements of customers in markets they serve.
Coolisys is dedicated to providing world-class technology-based solutions for mission critical applications and lifesaving services in which innovation is the main driver. Markets served include defence, aerospace, naval, homeland security, medical, telecom, Datacom, industrial markets and provides cryptocurrency mining technology. Coolisys targets core markets that are characterised by “high barriers to entry” and that require specialised products and services that are not likely to be commoditised.
Wiebe continues “Many of our customers experience issues around high temperature operation, limited space in their design and long lead-times which creates frustration and concerns about their design quality and potential delays in production. My main roll will be to understand and help to overcome those challenges and work together with customers to establish long lasting relationships.”
Karen Jay, Operations & Defence Business Manager at Gresham Power, comments, “We are very pleased to welcome Wiebe into our management team where his direct approach and enthusiasm is very refreshing.
