LCA Group chooses nVent HOFFMAN to meet superior-quality, quick-turn solution needs for major retailer

LCA Group, a UK-based electrical engineering solution provider, is on a mission to offer cutting edge technologies, superior efficiency and high quality to their customers. So, when a major retail customer with tight turnaround times came to them to manufacture a materials handling equipment control system under special restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LCA Group welcomed the challenge. 

The system needed to be developed and deployed within six weeks in a large distribution hub warehouse, and required 100-plus enclosures of varying sizes to safeguard industrial controls, electrical components, data communications and electronics for its indoor and outdoor applications. The system solution also needed to meet a range of IP ratings, including to prevent dirt and dust ingress. 

To meet the retailer’s project requirements, the LCA Group team sought a leading enclosure manufacturer with a broad, superior quality portfolio and a proven commitment to fast delivery and total value. 

LCA Group chose nVent HOFFMAN to gain faster, reliable access to trusted, high-quality products, as well as localized support and services. To select the range of wall mounted and floor standing mild steel enclosures, the LCA Group team leveraged nVent HOFFMAN’s user-friendly online resources to gather product information. 

“Working with our nVent account manager, we were able to source the right products to meet a challenging delivery request in difficult times,” said Alan Gardner, Manufacturing Director at LCA Group. “They met the specification and were readily available and in stock in the UK, allowing us to meet the deadline.”

In addition, LCA Group experienced firsthand the advantage nVent HOFFMAN now provides. LCA’s team had previously worked with Eldon, which became “stronger together” as part of nVent HOFFMAN in 2019. 

“The transition has allowed us to simplify our point of contact for support and information on the family of products,” Alan said. “The grouping should also mean we can work with the HOFFMAN team in the future, strengthening the relationship further.”

Today, nVent HOFFMAN offers one global product portfolio that enables customers to simplify engineering and sourcing. With more than 12,000 products and tailored solutions, nVent HOFFMAN offers a global manufacturing footprint and a uniquely complete range of IEC and NEMA electrical enclosures, plus thermal management solutions.
