UK/NEW ZEALAND: Glasgow-based controls specialist Resource Data Management has established a new affiliate company in Auckland, New Zealand.

RDM New Zealand is the latest international venture from Resource Data Management after launches in Malaysia, the USA, Sweden and Australia. The new company will seek to expand the reach of Resource Data Management hardware, software and remote monitoring solutions further throughout New Zealand, across the HVAC&R and BEMS markets.

Support for RDM hardware and software services has been consistently strong for several years in New Zealand via the main two partners, the Auckland-based commercial refrigeration equipment supplier EcoChill and contractor Fonko. Those sales arrangements will continue with RDM New Zealand focusing on the branding, promotion and support of RDM products.

EcoChill’s former controls and energy efficiency manager James Darby will head up an experienced new team in RDM New Zealand as the main director.

“As market demand for our award winning control and remote monitoring software solutions – Intuitive and Mercury controller range, DMTouch, and ActiveFM – increases, it’s important we work with carefully selected partners that understand the local market requirements and provide technical and commercial support to customers,” commented RDM group sales director Enrico Mirandola.

“With a proven track record in the refrigeration, HVAC, BMS and Energy Management, James Darby and his team are perfectly positioned to provide the required level of support to expand the reach of our solutions across the markets we operate in. RDM New Zealand represents another step towards our global growth strategy,” he added.

“Whilst the product has predominantly been used in the refrigeration sector in New Zealand, its flexibility will now open doors to many more sectors where it can prove itself as a leading control system for many applications,” explained James Darby.
