Tim then moved on to Regional Sales Manager for Western Canada. In 2002, Tim moved into a Business Development role, helping Rittal grow through a targeted approach to markets and industries. 

In 2010, Tim became the Business Operation Manager, guiding Rittal through a series of complex projects. In 2015, Tim took over as President of Rittal Systems Ltd., and continued to raise Rittal’s profile in the industry, as a Great Place to Work, recipient of Electro-Federation Canada’s Marketing Excellence Awards, and Affiliated Distributor Supplier of the Year Award. In recent years, Tim has been a founding member of the German Technology Day events and has initiated the ‘Women in Tech’ EFC scholarship.

Stationary Fuel Cell: Bosch Plans to Start Full-Scale Production in 2024

Stationary Fuel CellWhen it comes to stationary fuel cells, Bosch is stepping up a gear. In 2024, the supplier of technology and services intends to start full-scale production of distributed power stations based on solid oxide fuel-cell technology – hence the agreement to intensify its alliance with Ceres Power.

Following a successful prototype construction phase, the two companies now want to press ahead, initially with the pre-commercialization process for stationary fuel cells.
