About Us

Geist designs and manufactures intelligent hardware and software for the four cornerstones of data center management: Power. Cool. Monitor. Manage. Independently, each Geist product line offers industry leading capabilities and technology. Together, these products combine to create a comprehensive system for maintaining a secure and efficient data center. With a host of scalable systems for single cabinets, an entire enterprise and everything in between, each customer benefits from solutions that are custom fit for their specific needs.

The Geist culture has revolved around the customer for more than 60 years, and it’s evident in the way we do business today.

Geist account managers, engineers and inside sales representatives work together with each customer before the sale, and continue to support them for as long as they use Geist equipment. They identify the root of each challenge to deliver the right solution.

It’s this same customer focus that has motivated Geist to become a world leader in designing and manufacturing sophisticated data center management solutions for the four cornerstones of operations—power, cooling, monitoring and management.

Geist began by providing power and telecommunications hardware management equipment. Every situation demanded unique solutions, so Geist avoided the "one-size-fits-all" model and worked to tailor their offerings for each customer.
