In a market where well-known brands can take precedence, Metartec is chosen for high-profile projects due to its different approach to the marketplace, offering own-brand, open-protocol equipment that is combined with a personal service from a highly experienced technical and commercial team.
For many customers, the choice for purchasing a branded UPS is to remove the fear of the unknown. What should be made known is that UPS Original Design Manufacturers (ODM) in many ways work similarly to that of the automotive industry.
Key components for a vehicle carcass are used for all cars – the only difference in the finished product is the exterior and brand logo. This is what the customer is buying. The same principle applies in the creation of UPS.
With only a few leading global manufacturers, the essence of each UPS is essentially the same.
So, what then are customers paying for?
Metartec defines four points when evaluating equipment prices and the actual cost of ownership of your UPS system – these are Capital expenditure; Operational expenditure; Sourcing of components and sub-assemblies; and Technical expertise.
- Capital expenditure is the initial purchase cost associated with UPS equipment. Metartec offers own-brand equipment ensuring best value for money with no hidden costs.
- Operating expenditure can quickly exceed the cost of the initial investment of a UPS. Efficiency plays a significant role in reducing both energy and financial costs over the lifespan of a UPS system.

The system incorporates the latest ‘hibernation technology’ ensuring maximum energy efficiency through product lifespan. The company’s range of open protocol
