â€œWhen we made the decision to expand our product portfolio, it was apparent we needed to further differentiate ourselves as an innovative forward thinking company and to delineate Altronixâ€™s product lines by creating a stronger identity for them,â€ said Alan Forman, President, Altronix, Corp. â€œOur steadfast commitment to providing the best in breed power supplies and accessories, along with Altronixâ€™s unparalleled reputation for quality, reliability, performance and customer support have resulted with a continued increase in market share. â€œ
â€œThe first of Altronixâ€™s new brands â€“ HubWayâ„¢, Maximâ„¢ and StrikeItâ„¢ â€“ are the first of several new series scheduled for impending introduction. The new brands incorporate Altronixâ€™s proven core power supply expertise along with unique application specific solutions. They provide security professionals with more efficient and cost-effective choices for systems design and integration,â€ continued Mr. Forman. â€œOur branding strategy signals a new direction for Altronix that we believe will result in substantiating that Altronix is more than just powerâ€.
