ATLANTA, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry, today announced Innovolt®, the pioneer and leader in intelligent electronics power protection and management, as one of the Top 10 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.
The coveted Top 10 Innovative Technology Company Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their degree of innovation, the scope and financial impact of their innovations and effect of such innovation in promoting Georgia's technology industry throughout the U.S. and globally. Each Top 10 company will present their innovation on-stage during the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
"Innovolt's technology is not only changing the electronics power protection industry, the company is also putting Georgia on the map as a state where technology innovation can thrive," said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. "We applaud each of these companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia's technology community and look forward to showcasing them at our annual Georgia Technology Summit."
Today's electronics are pervasive with the vast majority of equipment deployed with insufficient protection, resulting in damage from disturbances on power grids that are remarkably chaotic and caustic. Cost-effective, highly scalable and integratable, Innovolt's proprietary and patented electronics protection technology is proven to significantly increase product reliability and lifespan and guards against damage from 99.5 percent of power interruptions, including infinite voltage and current variations. The company's comprehensive technology platform is proven to help electronic equipment last longer and with fewer service interruptions by keeping it safe from the common power disturbances that most often damage electronics.
"Electronics power protection choices have been limited, until now. Our technology is disrupting the marketplace and bringing a new cost-effective solution with greater functionality to the forefront," stated Jeff Spence, COO and president of Innovolt. "We're honored to be recognized as a TAG Top 10 company and proud to be acquainted with Atlanta's strong and innovative technology landscape."
"The competition for Top 10 recognition was particularly fierce this year," said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard, LLP, Chair of Group Office Buys, LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. "The Top 10 demonstrates the depth and breadth of Georgia's technology community. We are pleased to recognize this group of companies and believe that the community will be just as impressed as we are by their innovation and impact on Georgia's technology industry."
