Rhode Island manufacturer of environment monitors awarded the “Exporting Excellence” designation in the 2021 Manufacturing Awards sponsored by the Providence Business News

March 04, 2021 Warren, RI – AVTECH Software (AVTECH) has been recognized by the Providence Business News in their annual Manufacturing Awards program, designating AVTECH as their “Exporting Excellence” award winner for 2021.  This recognition for AVTECH follows on the heels of being recognized as a “20 Prospering Companies In The Pandemic” by Mirror Review Magazine and a “20 Most Innovative Companies Of The Year” by Global Smart Leaders.

Now in its 33rd year in business, AVTECH manufactures Room Alert, the world’s most popular environment monitor for business continuity plans. Room Alert is made in the USA and proactively monitors environment conditions such as temperature, humidity, flood, power, smoke, and more. Room Alert is currently used in 187 of 196 countries by organizations ranging from thousands of small businesses to one of the world’s largest retailers, over 80% of the Fortune 1000, the United Nations, every branch of the US military, and many state and local governments.

AVTECH has been exporting Room Alert monitors and sensors globally for nearly two decades. In 2018 they opened an international distribution center in Shannon, Ireland to help keep up with demand for their products outside of North America. Many of AVTECH’s customers as well as authorized resellers have seen immense benefits since the introduction of the distribution center, including much lower landing costs, faster shipping, and ease of importing. The continued growth of Room Alert export market also led to the opening of AVTECH’s first international sales office in Dubai in early 2020.

“We have experienced fantastic international growth in recent years,” said Richard Grundy, President of AVTECH. “Much of our growth has been due to our international resellers as well as the hard work of our Reseller Channel and International Sales employees. Business continuity is a concern for every organization, no matter where they are located. Thanks to our resellers and our team members, we have learned an incredible amount about specific environmental concerns in different regions, and how Room Alert can help monitor those concerns for our users to prevent costly downtime and protect their employees. It is always an honor to both be recognized by the Providence Business News for our exporting excellence, as well as to be able to proudly represent our home state of Rhode Island on an international stage.”

In addition to Room Alert environment monitors, AVTECH also offers a wide range of digital, switch and analog sensors designed to help users monitor as many environment conditions as possible to help protect their facilities. Room Alert is a crucial part of any organization’s business continuity plan, as it allows users to fully monitor environment conditions in their data centers, server rooms, and facilities that can cause unexpected downtime.
