SPOC Automation, of Trussville, has launched a new company, SPOC Grid Inverter Technologies Inc., and named Andrew Williams its managing director.
SPOC has deployed 70,000 inverters into the harshest industrial environments, helping its customers save $443 million in energy costs and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 3 million metric tons per year. SPOC Grid Inverter Technologies will provide new energy alternative configuration choices, assist in reducing carbon emissions and give its customers more control of their power systems in numerous applications, such as marine system propulsion and thruster equipment, renewables, battery energy storage, solar or wind-driven applications, water management or compression systems and more.
“We are excited about this new company and technology, as it is a natural progression to our core. SPOC is ecstatic to not only serve our current customers with alternative solutions, but to broaden our reach and assist new companies and markets as well,” said SPOC President and CEO Robert Mason. “SPOC’s inverter technologies are providing electrical alternatives to marine, renewables and energy storage, U.S. Department of Defense, critical power, mining and oil and gas industries that they have never had before with smart grid inverters and energy storage systems.”
Williams, who has more than 20 years of engineering and executive experience in the switchgear and power control markets, will lead the new company. He will be responsible for driving revenue, strategy, product development, leadership and ongoing business development.
“Andrew is an excellent ambassador of our mission. He brings passion and energy focused on excellent customer experience, along with a wealth of industry experience, understanding and expertise to the team,” Mason said.
