IT firm wins AC35 partnership
An island-based IT firm has become an official supplier to the America's Cup.
CCS Group will be the official information and communications technology supplier to the event.
Peter Aldrich, general manager of CCS, said: “We are very excited to be working with the America's Cup to deliver a quality ICT experience to all of those involved with the historic event.
“Being asked to partner with America's Cup is a testament to the world-class service that CCS can provide.
“This is an incredible opportunity for Bermuda to demonstrate our excellence on a world stage.”
CCS will provide cabling, equipment and network engineers to create an IT network to be used by event staff, media covering the races, emergency services and visitors.
Dan Barnett, chief commercial officer of the America's Cup, said: “IT will play a key role in the successful delivery of the world-class events that will take place in Bermuda in May and June 2017 and CCS are the perfect company to help deliver that ICT infrastructure.”
Warren Jones, head of IT at the America's Cup Event Authority, added: “Following the excellent service CCS provided at the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series in Bermuda, we wanted to work with CCS again. Their engineers are some of the best ICT consultants that I've worked with.”
Kory Logan, sales and marketing director at CCS said: “The America's Cup Event Authority has worked with systems integrators like CCS around the world.
“Their faith in CCS and its staff's ability to support the event's ICT infrastructure is a testament to the quality of services that local companies like CCS can provide.”
CCS, which provides both local and international companies with communications and consulting services, is part of the BAS group of companies.
