Beacon Enterprise Solutions Signs Strategic Global Partnership with Atlas Industrial Electric

-- Partnership Agreement with North American Electrical Design Company Provides Framework for Joint Projects and Expanded Client Base for Both Companies --

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--()--Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTCBB: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com), an emerging global leader in the design, implementation and management of high performance Information Technology Systems (“ITS”) infrastructure solutions, today announced the execution of a global partnership agreement with Atlas Industrial Electric Co. (“Atlas Electric”).

The partnership agreement provides the framework for Beacon Solutions and Atlas Electric to work together in order to execute the design, engineering, construction and managed services for a variety of mutually beneficial client projects going forward. These joint endeavors may range from network and electrical projects, to advanced technology systems, to smart buildings, data centers and various other technology solutions for existing and potential clients. The enterprise facility, security and IT management sectors are increasingly moving towards an expectation of combined low and high voltage expertise that will introduce new levels of technical performance and economies of scale into the design, engineering and construction of the built environment. This partnership is expected to result in the ability of the combined Atlas/Beacon team to provide more comprehensive technology system services to existing and future clients – increasing their technical and operational capabilities while introducing the cost effectiveness that comes from single-sourcing.
