A Bellingham company was recently awarded a significant vendor contract with Time Warner Cable through its supplier diversity program.
Alpha Technologies Inc. will supply the majority of Time Warner Cable’s batteries and power supplies under a one-year contract, according to a news release from Time Warner. The deal will potentially result in the sale of tens of thousands of batteries for backup power use.
Alpha, through its licensed contract manufacturer Altair Advanced Industries Inc., has been a Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise supplier to the communications industry for more than 30 years, said Grace Borsari, owner and CEO of Altair, which is a member of The Alpha Group.
Altair has facilities in Bellingham and Suwanee, Ga.
“Time Warner Cable has really contributed to our success as a major customer for many years,” Borsari said.
Time Warner Cable buys more than $200 million a year in supplies and services from certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises. The company is actively recruiting minority and women-owned vendors interested in participating in the Supplier Diversity program.
