Geist and Nebraska DED grow partnership with Japan

Tokyo, Japan, September 14, 2015 – Geist’s presence in the Japanese data center market has seen growth the last several years to the point of identifying the need for a local partner. With the support of the Nebraska Center Japan, in Yokohoma, Geist was able to build a solid business relationship with Meikyo Denki.

The need for increased support of the local language paired with the understanding of data center technology were factors in selecting Meikyo Denki, a Japanese power distribution panel manufacturer.

“Geist is excited to have Meikyo Denki as our new partner in Japan.” Jason Christie, Managing Director – Geist Asia explains. “The partnership expands our sales force in Japan and provides the much needed technical support, which is essential throughout the sales process in the data center market.”

The support of Nebraska’s Department of Economic Development, Nebraska Center Japan and Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts was instrumental in the assistance with the partnership between Geist and Meikyo Denki. The new partnership allows Geist to offer significant technical support, giving Japanese customers more confidence in the solution-based products. It also allows the company to develop a greater understanding of the local market needs to pinpoint the solutions that fit the Japanese landscape.
