LS teams with CH2M HILL in Global Integrator deal

In a global move, LG electronics offshoot LS has appointed industry leading information technology (IT) management company CH2M HILL Enterprise Management Solutions as Global Integrator for the new LS Simple™ range of structured cabling, intelligent power and intelligent infrastructure management solutions.

Employee-owned by its 19,000 people, CH2M HILL is a global firm providing engineering, construction, operations, and related technical services to public and private clients. With $4.5 billion in revenue, CH2M HILL is an industry-leading program management, construction management for fee, and design firm.

Paul Eo, regional manager Europe for LS Simple said, "As a US$3 billion worldwide operation oursleves, we need partners who are focused on the same target market ourselves" major national and global corporations and enterprises as well as data centre and network operators. Our global strategy calls for only three such global integration partners and we are delighted to have signed CH2M HILL as one of this highly select team of experts.

"Companies with the expertise and track record of CH2M HILL are essential to delivering the Simple range of solutions because they really have the knowledge to simply find out what the IT customer needs their network or data centre to achieve," added Eo. "Then in partnership with ourselves, they can devise and deliver the entire solution - everything from data network to a complete data centre including the building and every aspect if that's what the customer needs."

"As a programme management company we are generally vendor neutral," said CH2M HILL VP and UK Country Manager Chris Drew. "We install systems from all the major world brands whenever a client specifies them. However on many occasions, in the massive projects we design, build and operate, the client relies on our expertise to specify and install elements such as the data infrastructure, power and air conditioning. We find that LS Simple, with its integrated intelligent infrastructure and intelligent power management, is an excellent solution."

Drew also added another important factor " the size and scale of LS as a company. He noted that LS is larger than other structured cabling and infrastructure companies, complimenting CH2M HILL's global stature. Another factor Drew identified is LS and CH2M HILL's shared belief that infrastructure technology is now too complex for most end-users to specify safely and both companies believe in delivering to the customer a simple, fit for purpose solution.

LS is also, like CH2M HILL, very clearly focused on major projects and LS Simple has the complete product set to support CH2M HILL's needs anywhere in the world – essential when dealing with global customers and projects.

"The whole LS operation is based on honesty, integrity and trust," said Drew. "These qualities completely match our own ethos and lead to success and satisfied customers!"

In the past, CH2M HILL has served as programme manager for many major international projects including the US Air Force, US Navy, UK MoD, BP, UK Atomic Energy Authority, Coca Cola, ntl, Vodafone, General Motors and Proctor & Gamble.

With a turnover of US$3 billion and some 3000 people - including 400 in R&D - LS is one of those massive companies most people haven't heard of - that is until you find out that they were part of the global electronics giant LG of 'Life's Good' fame They are privately owned by the same families as LG and have been manufacturing cabling for some of the worlds best known brands for 40 years. Network cabling, fibre optics, power cabling, deep-sea cables and advanced air-conditioning plant are all part of the company's massive design and manufacturing capabilities.
