Eaton Garners Power Quality Company of the Year Title


Frost & Sullivan has chosen Eaton as the recipient of its 2006 Power Quality Company of the Year Award for its continued accomplishments in the power quality markets. This is the third consecutive year Eaton has received this Award recognizing a number of achievements.

Eaton's electrical group sales are estimated at over $4 billion for 2005, and its power quality solutions group showed a growth of 8% to 10%. This growth is attributed to the company’s offering of a "solution-based strategy" to its customers. The company has worked toward building intelligence into its power quality products and continues to expand its global footprint.

"With the launch of PowerChain Management Solutions, Eaton can now provide end-to-end custom solutions to its customers who want turnkey solutions," says Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Vishal Sapru. "This, coupled with its service group both for the specification and the installation and ongoing maintenance, is a really strong solution."

Well-planned acquisitions have enabled the company to expand its product portfolio in the power quality market place. For instance, Eaton's 2004 acquisition of Powerware enabled the company to expand its product portfolio and enter the backup and DC power systems market.

"Eaton has expanded its vertical segments by focusing on the IT and health-care markets, which has resulted in their continued market share growth and success," says Sapru. "By extending its product lines to include everything from transfer switches to power distribution units (PDUs), Eaton addresses the electrical needs of customers in its entirety."
