Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Carter Brothers, LLC (“Carter Brothers”), a leading integrator of fire, life safety, and electronic security systems announced a partnership with The FIAMM Group (“FIAMM”), one of world’s largest international manufacturers of industrial batteries.
“Since we started Carter Brothers 10 years ago, our strategy has been to align with manufacturers through which we could provide the highest quality products to our customers. FIAMM’s batteries provide us that opportunity,” said Carter Brothers President & CEO John Carter. “The fact that we share similar values as family-owned and operated businesses was also critical in deciding to partner.”
Since 2001, Carter Brothers has project managed the installation and service of nearly $1B in security projects nationwide. Because the Carter Brothers project management delivery model encompasses design/build, procurement, installation, and maintenance, FIAMM’s batteries would be utilized for new system applications as well as service of existing systems.
Founded in Italy in the 1940s, FIAMM has grown to become a global leader in battery and horn manufacturing with production facilities in the United States, Italy, Switzerland, France Czech Republic, Brazil, India and China. FIAMM’s North American headquarters, FIAMM Energy LLC, are located in Waynesboro, GA. Carter Brothers is one of a select group FIAMM representatives and the first U.S. Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) within the FIAMM network.
“Because of the national customer relationships Carter Brothers has built over the years, we believe that they will be an excellent representative for the full suite of FIAMM industrial battery products,” said Luca Bovalino, President & CEO of FIAMM Energy LLC. “Their leadership as one of the top Security Systems Integrators in the U.S. means that our products will reach enterprise customers outside of our current network.”
Carter Brothers and FIAMM announced their partnership at the National Minority Supplier Development Council Conference in Miami, FL on October 24 -27, 2010.
