In the first instance Data Centre Alliance was pointed out to us by one of our good customers, Data Racks.
This made us look at who and what is involved with the Data Centre world. EMKA has been working with rack manufacturers for many years and although we supply probably the largest number of swinghandles to the industry in the market, usually through rack companies, we realised that the actual Data Centre people are not really aware of EMKA.
With the introduction of the Biometric Access system we felt that we needed to get more involved with the market and Data Centre Alliance looked like an ideal way to highlight who we are and what we do. We look forward to having the opportunity to get directly involved through some of the steering committees and passing on our knowledge with our expertise in the locking industry, especially relating to the securing of cabinets.
