Wrexham Power Protection Provider Picks Up National Award


A Wrexham-based manufacturer of backup electrical power systems has been recognised at a prestigious UK-wide business awards.

Riello UPS’s Multi Power solution claimed the ‘Power Product of the Year’ prize at the Excellence Awards, an annual celebration co-hosted by the Electrical Review and Data Centre Review publications.

The company, which is based on Wrexham Industrial Estate and employs around 70 staff, received the accolade at a black-tie ceremony staged at Christ Church in Spitalfields, London earlier this month [Thursday 19 May].

Multi Power is Riello UPS’s best-selling modular solution that provides backup power in data centres and other mission-critical environments. It triumphed over four other finalists, with judges praising the product’s ‘pay as you grow’ scalability, exceptional energy efficiency across all loads, and high power density in a compact footprint.

Leo Craig, Managing Director of Riello UPS, commented:

“It’s fantastic to earn this recognition at one of the UK electrical industry’s most respected events. Multi Power is one of our flagship products and this award helps reinforce its longstanding reputation for performance, efficiency, and scalability.”

In addition to the Multi Power triumph, Riello UPS’s Technical Services Manager Jason Yates was a runner-up in the ‘Technical Leader of the Year’ award, a new category to celebrate people who have “demonstrated exceptional technical leadership and exemplify the values of the industry at large”.

Based at a 24,000 square foot warehouse on Wrexham Industrial Estate, Riello UPS is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). A UPS offers invaluable battery backup during power outages. It provides emergency electricity until backup generators kick in, as well as keeping computers and ICT equipment running long enough to safely shut-down with minimal risk of data loss.

In addition to data centres, Riello UPS also supplies power protection products and ongoing maintenance support to clients in environments as diverse as hospitals, supermarkets, universities, telecommunications and finance, manufacturing, sports stadia, and shopping centres.

The Excellence Awards is hosted in partnership by the influential industry publications Electrical Review and Data Centre Review. It aims to “celebrate excellence, best practice, innovations, and technical developments across the electrical and data centre industries”. The 2022 awards featured prizes in 16 categories covering both products and projects across areas such as sustainability, innovation, and energy efficiency.
