Opengear (http://www.opengear.com), a leading provider of critical infrastructure management solutions through advanced console servers, remote management, monitoring, and cellular out-of-band products, today announced that the company’s manufacturing facility in Sandy, Utah – Opengear’s U.S. headquarters – has received TÜV Rheinland certification. Opengear’s product lines made at this facility may now carry TÜV Rheinland’s certification mark, demonstrating that Opengear’s solutions for remotely and securely managing critical IT infrastructure have met the applicable safety requirements and quality standards.
Earning TÜV Rheinland certification builds upon the momentum Opengear has carried through the first half of 2015, including continued revenue growth worldwide, new channel partners, and a 30% increase in headcount across engineering, sales, and marketing. Opengear has been relentless on the product innovation front as well, continuing to pioneer new out-of-band solutions through its Smart OOB™ and Failover-to-Cellular™ technologies, along with the newly released Resilience Gateway™.
Opengear’s production facility was inspected by TÜV Rheinland of North America, as per PD CIG 021 factory inspection procedures. This inspection checked that quality and production control procedures are successfully in place and ensured that all certified products are identical within acceptable manufacturing tolerances. Customers who see the TÜV Rheinland certification mark can be certain that the product they are buying is safe, and that it has been investigated by an accredited third party and checked by regular surveillance audits.
“TÜV Rheinland’s certification is among the most sought after in the industry,” said Gary Marks, President, Opengear. “We’re proud of the quality control at our manufacturing facility and glad to have achieved this accomplishment as we continue to expand our product lines and grow our business worldwide.”
