AEG Power Solutions Hires Full-service Marketing Firm M/C/C to Bolster North American Presence

Dallas agency to handle North American marketing activities

AEG Power Solutions stands for superiority in performance and German engineering throughout the European, Middle Eastern and Asian markets; however, its brand isn't quite so well known in the North American market. That's why the Germany-based company known for excellence in performance outside North America contracted the full-service marketing firm known for excellence in performance across the Atlantic. Dallas-based M/C/C will head up AEG Power Solutions' North American marketing efforts including advertising, marketing, public relations and comprehensive customer research.

"When we decided to focus on the North American market as AEG Power Solutions, we realized there was going to be quite a challenge in getting our brand out there and ensuring that people understand who we are with our long history of providing the most efficient and reliable power solutions throughout the globe. We also were looking to enter the renewable energies market at the same time, which offered its own set of complications and challenges to our entry," said Kaivon Mortazavi, vice president of North America for AEG Power Solutions. "M/C/C demonstrated that not only were they fully capable of truly understanding our technology and what makes our customized solutions so unique and sought after in the industry, but that they could clearly and effectively convey that understanding to the North American market just as we've successfully communicated to the European, Middle Eastern and Asian markets for decades."

M/C/C will help AEG Power Solutions (www.aegps.com) market its traditional portfolio such as customized universal power controllers and power supplies as well as its renewable energy solutions throughout the North American market. M/C/C will leverage all of its capabilities to help ensure AEG's success in the North American region such as wide-scale creative services including branding, advertising and marketing as well as a comprehensive public relations program and industry and brand research.

"AEG Power Solutions has spent the last 60 years providing the world with the most efficient and reliable customized solutions. They are truly the global leader in their industry," said Mike Crawford, president of M/C/C. "Unfortunately, the North American market hasn't had the opportunity to experience AEG's remarkable solutions - until now. We're looking forward to combining AEG Power Solutions' German precision and efficiency with M/C/C's marketing communications strengths."
