IPT PowerTech Group is the market leader as Complete Solutions Provider combining specialized energy/energy efficient solutions with innovative telecom infrastructure services across Africa, Middle East and South East Asia.

Our journey has been a rapid evolution to becoming a regional power system integrator with offices in 11 countries, serving top clients in the region and delivering projects to more than 60 operators in 50 countries; while becoming one of the few companies in the region, if not the only one, to combine product R&D to our assembly facilities in Romania and Lebanon. Our in-house manufacturing and assembly facilities allows us to provide complete end-to-end services from design, manufacturing, and supply to final integration.

Our ability to combine our power expertise, telecom services, and managed services at the same time became our differentiation factor, and this propelled our recent success in introducing and implementing the Guaranteed Savings and T-ESCO models.

Throughout the expansion of our business and diversification of our activities, our broad array of offerings has seen a considerable evolution across the whole telecom and power value chain of MNOs and towercos.

As for the telecom power, we adapted our business model to fulfill the needs of our customers by providing a holistic solution of energy efficient products and managed services as a Telecom Energy Services Company (T-ESCO). Our own energy services offerings are categorized in 2 main streams, one called The Guaranteed Savings Model and the other T-ESCO model and both serve MNOs and Towercos in a way to reflect the appetite for CAPEX spending or CAPEX leasing. Both models ensure the deliverables of power availability and reliability to the network respecting all SLAs related are met.

Our positioning in the market as the complete solutions provider has provided us with the expertise to propose the right solution that the client is looking for, and we move forward with development, manufacturing the equipment, integrating it within the system, and maintaining its own solution for optimal performance. In short, we provide customers with a complete and hassle-free service, so that they can focus their attention on their core business. A key element behind the successful relationship with our clients is our common focus on the Total Cost of Ownership "TCO".

On the other hand, our group is keen on putting CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiatives at the heart of its business strategy within the community, which is embodied in our ethical principles for the protection of the environment and the respect of the people through contributing in social and economic activities, health and education, sustainable energy and pollution, in addition to material and financial investments.

IPT PowerTech's team is always seeking new challenges where we can recreate new power solutions and add advanced features to its wide portfolio, and redefine new added services to guarantee optimal performance at lower cost possible in addition to adding value to our customers. Our appetite for expansion and growth is driven by the hard work of our 2500 specialists, the reason behind the strength, success and differentiation of the group.

At IPT PowerTech Group we strive towards redefining power solutions and reinventing telecom infrastructure.
