Jointly, we have impressive resources in terms of R&D and digitalisation initiatives, enabling us to develop an even broader, synchronised solutions portfolio worldwide. The integration of Eldon into nVent HOFFMAN has given us an opportunity to add relevant products from the nVent HOFFMAN product range into the new global IEC offering in markets where additional product needs are identified.
To make it clear that we are one company with one global product portfolio, all products are labelled nVent HOFFMAN.
Manufacturing close to you
A number of nVent HOFFMAN’s production lines in its factories throughout the world are being reconfigured and retooled in order to manufacture Eldon products. With our global coverage we are now able to manufacture products with the same spec in the Americas, Asia, and Europe – all with the same excellent quality.
This is great news for international machine builders, global system integrators and end-users who have centralized engineering but purchase these products around the world – they can now expect us to deliver the same product in any part of the world.
Manufacturing close to you ensures that your specs are precisely met, and that products are delivered exactly where you need them, at the right time and at a competitive price – while cutting transportation costs and simplifying logistics.
Flexible, skilled staff close to you
Our sales companies are manned by skilled sales people and technicians who speak your local language. They understand your business and the market situation, and they strive to forge a long-term relationship.
Our local staff are pleased to help you with projects requiring enclosures to be manufactured and delivered in another country. Your key contact for the project is one of our local technical specialists. He or she will liaise with relevant factories abroad to ensure your specifications are met and delivery is carried out, on time and to the correct location.
