Kohler Power Receives Top Honors from Data Centre Magazine

The Kohler Power team is celebrating after being awarded the top spot on Data Centre Magazine’s list of Top 10 Power Supply and Management Companies. Kohler recently landed at number one on the list because of the critical role it plays in keeping data centers operational. 

Kohler’s Data Center Generator History

Kohler began offering its first custom generator solution for large data centers in 2016, but has a lengthy history of manufacturing modern generators for other uses dating back to the 1920s. The company has become the third-largest manufacturer of generators in the world and one of the most trusted providers of generators for data centers. 

The recent recognition by Data Centre Magazine, a leading voice for the global big data and cloud industry with international reach, solidifies the positive impact Kohler’s has had on the data center industry. The list recognizes the leading companies providing critical power solutions for data centers.

“Kohler introduced the standby power generator in 1920, so it’s no surprise we’ve become a global leader in the data center space. Our industry leading 4MW product positions us well during this period of explosive growth. Over the last 100 years our products, technology, and performance has advanced rapidly, but how we deliver them has not changed. It’s our mission to delight our customers with a gracious experience. We’re proud to be recognized in this way by being named to the Top 10 Power Supply and Management Companies list.” — Sean Farney, Director of Data Center Marketing for Kohler. 

The Rising Need for Hyperscale Generators

Data centers account for approximately 1% of the world’s energy consumption, and reliable power and backup power sources are crucial for operations. Consumers and businesses across industries worldwide rely on data centers to empower communication. Outages at these critical facilities prevent businesses from processing and sharing crucial information with employees and customers, which can result in loss of productivity and revenue. Kohler’s generators enable data centers to remain operational during an outage, which often means the difference between a business continuing to operate or not. 

Additional Kohler Accolades 

Last year, Kohler’s Tier 4 Final KD Series Generator received recognition because of its ability to provide reliable backup power for large hyperscale and regional global data centers in a more sustainable way. Kohler was named the recipient of the renowned Sustainability Product of the Year award as part of The Business Intelligence Group’s 2021 Sustainability Awards program.
