Leading loadbank manufacturer, Crestchic has announced its partnership with BCA Group, specialist in data centre testing. The BCA group is now responsible for the majority of data centres tests in Poland, using Crestchic’s products.

BCA Group offers unique products and services related to testing and maintenance of technical infrastructure for users who consider reliability and safety a priority.

The data centre market has grown considerably in recent years in Poland and, although still in its early phases of development, is worth more than 1bn Polish Zloty (£188m). After identifying a need for knowledge in this area, BCA Group began a campaign to inform operators of the importance of testing through training and participation in technical conferences. After beginning work in 2012 in an industry that had little understanding of the need to test power, BCA Group are now present in almost all tests that take place in Poland.

Crestchic is one of the world’s leading specialist manufacturers of loadbanks which are used in the testing of power supplies in the most demanding climatic and environmental conditions across seven continents.

Robert Berliński, Sales manager at BCA Group, commented “The data centre market had very little knowledge of the need to test power when we began in 2012. Thanks to our hard work we can proudly say we have contributed to the changing industry’s attitude to power testing. This partnership with Crestchic, means we can continue to work effectively and efficiently in a market that is only set to grow”.

Paul Brickman, Sales and Marketing Director at Crestchic said: “We are proud to work with such a forward thinking organisation, who recognised a gap in the understanding of the importance of power testing. This is an area where we will see continued growth in Poland in the coming years and this partnership with the BCA group is a great entry point into this market.”
