Murata Energy expands on numerous fronts

Reseller signings, strategic team additions and move to a larger space


Laying the foundation for future growth, Murata Energy Solutions Americas Inc., Carrolton TX, has announced the signing of Value Added Reseller (VAR) partners, expanded its marketing and engineering team, and plans to move into a larger facility to handle the growth of its Automated Load Management (ALM) and Emergency Power Supply System (EPSS) solutions.

Acceptance of its cloud-based SaaS solution in the market has spurred these actions that enable the company to be well positioned for future growth. Murata Energy Solutions recently signed several strategic VAR partners that focus on EPSS markets, including TD Industries and Ready Data, both in Dallas. These are in addition to the previous partnership agreements executed with CPower and Connexx Energy earlier this year.

“Agreements with these first class VAR strengthen our ability to serve customers in the EPSS and Demand Response markets, says Tim Cutler, general manager, Murata Energy Solutions. “Their willingness to sign on as partners further validates the acceptance of our offerings by end users.”

Additionally, Murata Energy Solutions has added Scott Brothers, an experienced marketing manager in the SaaS space for both commercial real estate and hospitals. His responsibilities include complete ownership of the solution lines, as well as driving product roadmaps and the overall marketing strategy. Tom Takesian has joined the sales team and will focus on the automated load management product for demand response applications. Takesian has extensive sales and business development experience in the demand response and energy management markets.

Lastly, Murata Energy Solutions moved its headquarters from Plano to Carrolton TX in November to accommodate the business’ expansion.

“With this tremendous growth, we have outgrown our current space,” says Farlin Halsey, vice-president of strategic marketing. “Our new, larger facilities is state-of-the-art and provides much needed demo and training space. We expect this space will accommodate our growth for the next several years and create a scalable showcase for our products, people, and capabilities.”
