Anixter and Rittal joined forces systematically in 2016 signing a global Master Sales Agreement and since then develop a global strategic Alliance relationship with a concerted market approach, systematic development of global key accounts and joint sales and marketing activities.

The companies have developed joint solutions like for Edge Data Centres (DC) or IT Containers and continue to strive to create new solutions. Customer feedback from both, the IT and industry business on the solutions is extremely positive and they are convinced of their value proposition and competitiveness.


IT Infrastructure Solutions

The digital transformation is revolutionising production. To control production in line with Industry 4.0, all components are now interlinked and communicate with one another: robots, human/machine interfaces, sensors and actuators, machines, tools and control systems. Their values are compared against their digital twin. This generates vast volumes of data. That’s where decentralized Edge Data Centres come in in addition to Hyperscale and Colocations DCs.

Rittal and Anixter provide customized Data Center solutions like “Rack & Stack Offerings”, Smart Rack offerings for Colocation, Industrial Rack packages for industrial environments, Outdoor solutions for Telco, and Container solutions for global System Integrators.


Industry Infrastructure Solutions

The key to greater productivity in enclosure manufacturing lies in digital integration and end-to-end data transfer across the entire value chain. Digital prototyping from the outset, with the digital twin at its heart, provides the basis for rapid links between processes, systems and beyond.

Rittal and Anixter provide industrial enclosures as well as wall-mounted enclosures with a unique range of accessories for system integration, power distributions and climate control. Various configurators exist to select your right package. The products are available globally.
