CoastTec’s CEO, Jonathan Sevel, speaks of the partnership, “The synergies shared between CDI and CoastTec made our partnership a natural fit and we’re excited for the opportunity to expand CDI’s K-12 product offering. We look forward to providing APC re-certified products to CDI’s customers to save them thousands of dollars on their I.T. infrastructure.”

The partnership aims to leverage the two companies’ respective strength and expertise in providing world-class, re-certified I.T. equipment backed by exceptional warranties. CDI ships over 45,000 recertified systems to schools per month, all of which have undergone a meticulous test and audit process by a team of over 65 licensed technicians in a 120,000-square-foot facility. Standard warranties for CDI re-certified devices guarantee zero cost of ownership with terms that often surpass new product warranties from manufacturers.

Established in 1988, and partnered with APC since 1991, CoastTec is the only APC-certified out-of-warranty service centre for single-phase UPS equipment in the United States. The company’s core business is focused on reuse, remanufacturing and certified pre-owned sales. CoastTec technicians are factory-trained by APC for component level repair and work closely with the manufacturer to implement the latest engineering change orders.
