- Eaton adds second production line to expedite North American delivery
- Eaton names Scott Pingree project manager to support electrical contractors
- Eaton builds on its digital tools making it easier and faster to configure custom branch circuit assemblies and work with electrical contractors
PITTSBURGH, PA — Power management company Eaton today announced it is expanding manufacturing capacity, engineering support and configuration tools for its Crouse-Hinds series PRE-formance electrical assemblies. Eaton’s range of prefabricated solutions for branch wiring, from a complete engineered to a custom-configured solution, help electrical contractors drastically improve productivity, reduce material handling time and optimize labor on their projects.
Industry experts estimate that prefabrication can increase worker productivity from 20-30 percent through reductions in material handling on the job site and rough-in time. With the current shortage of skilled labor, pre-built products can also help close the capacity gap.
“Eaton has a long history of delivering prefabricated and modular products that save costs and installation time for contractors, helping them complete projects on schedule” said Michael McManus, global product line manager, commercial products at Eaton. “Our recent investments are shortening lead times, making it easier to configure assemblies and providing added support for electrical contractors.”
Eaton is increasing its production capacity for PRE-formance products with a second production line at its manufacturing facility in Texas. This additional manufacturing location will supplement the existing production center located in Pennsylvania and provide faster lead times for assemblies in the West and Gulf regions.
