Power transmission distributor Kaman Industrial Technologies Corporation (KIT), a subsidiary of Kaman Corporation, will become a distributor of Schneider Electric’s line of industrial automation and control products, as well as select power control and protection products commonly used in motor control applications.
As part of the agreement, Schneider Electric will become KIT’s primary line of AC drives, sensors, low-voltage controls, and automation. The deal also authorizes the sale of Schneider Electric Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), and signaling equipment. KIT will begin stocking these products at its more than 200 locations throughout the U.S. in the first quarter of 2013.
Schneider Electric will also provide certified drives specialists to support a certain number of KIT branches.
“KIT provides a different entry point to our potential customers,” Jeff Jervah, Director of Channel Development at Schneider Electric Industry Business, said in an official announcement. “We look forward to working together to provide the Power Transmission market a comprehensive line of drives, controls, automation and sensors products from one supplier—an offering that is currently absent from the market.”
