“As we expand our distributor program we’re looking for experienced, well-connected power-distribution equipment providers to represent us across the U.S.,” Rafael Acosta, President of HIPOWER SYSTEMS. “WPP brings just the right kind of expertise and enthusiasm that we need to grow our presence in and across Texas.”
