As it prepares this weekend for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R team announces a new partnership with AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection.
North Carolina-based AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection, with its ESP and SurgeX brands, and the company’s Illinois-based subsidiary Powervar, are leading global providers of advanced power protection.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome AMETEK to the Konica Minolta Cadillac family of partnerships,” said Wayne Taylor, whose team opened the annual three-day Roar Before the 24 test Friday at Daytona. “In addition to the success we’ve had on the racetrack by way of numerous race wins and multiple championships, one of the hallmarks of this organization since it began has been the ability to identify, generate and engage in meaningful partnerships that generate positive business-to-business results for the race team and those partners within our motorsports community. We look forward to working with AMETEK in helping the company achieve its business goals and also by representing them well through continued success on the racetrack.”
“We are excited to partner with the prestigious Wayne Taylor Racing team and the Konica Minolta Cadillac family of partnerships for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season,” said Dave Perrotta, Vice President Business Unit Manager for AMETEK ESP Powervar. “At AMETEK, we have a wide variety of brands and product solutions that have grown based on our successful relationships with customers and business partners. We truly believe that the relationship with WTR, IMSA, and Konica Minolta will provide many new business-to-business opportunities for our organization. The No. 10 team’s success and commitment to excellence is mirrored by the same at AMETEK, and we are excited about what the future holds.”
AMETEK’s ESP and SurgeX brands offer power management, intelligent diagnostics, and battery backup solutions to the business equipment, document imaging, and audio visual industries. Powervar’s transformer-based power conditioners and uninterruptible power supplies provide complete power quality solutions to the medical, industrial, and point-of-sale markets. Central to both companies is a core belief in providing customer value through collaborative partnerships, innovation, and technologically advanced solutions.
