The Corporate Report 2011: Meltric Corporation
EP Editorial Staff | March 23, 2012
In the early 1950s, Gilles Marechal witnessed an industrial accident that occurred when a defective motor was plugged in.
The seriousness of the accident caused Mr. Marechal to embark on a mission to develop an industrial-duty plug and receptacle that would eliminate the hazards posed by ordinary pin-and-sleeve devices. The result was the creation of a safety-focused product line that is now manufactured and sold in North America by the Meltric Corporation.
Meltric’s complete line of industrial-duty plugs and receptacles features the world’s only UL switch-rated plugs and receptacles. Switch-rated plugs and receptacles can be used to safely make and break electrical connections under full load. Exclusive safety features prevent exposure to electrical hazards and enable plug-and-play change-outs of motors, welders and other electrical equipment.
Meltric products are manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility in Franklin, WI. Corporate headquarters are located under the same roof as the manufacturing facility, allowing for efficient communication and coordination. As a result, many orders ship in less than 24 hours!
