Princeps has announced that it has signed an authorised distribution agreement with Hammond Manufacturing. Princeps is supplying Hammond’s complete portfolio of electrical enclosures, which can also be modified and customised in-house to suit specific customer requirements.
Hammond manufactures a huge range of electrical enclosures in metallic and non-metallic materials – mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, ABS, polyester, GRP – as well as various ranges of small electronics, enclosures and accessories. There are enclosures in many sizes and styles, suitable for the vast majority of applications to protect delicate electrical and electronic installations, including (depending on IP and IK rating) models that are waterproof, resistant to particle ingress such as dust or chemical sprays and robust enough to withstand other hazards found in commercial and industrial environments.
Hammond has the in-house capability to modify any of the thousands of its enclosures to suit challenging designs where a standard solution is not suitable. Services include non-standard sizes, alternative materials, cut-outs, punched holes, louvres, pre-installed accessories, hinge changes, special paint colours, silk screening and more.
David Nash, Sales Director, Princeps, comments: “Hammond enclosures are renowned for their variety and quality, and we are delighted to have been appointed as a Hammond authorised distributor, which further enhances our capability to provide complete customer solutions. Hammond’s in-house customisation service saves time and effort: instead of having to carry out modifications or sub-contract thus work out themselves, we work with our customers to understand their requirements, assist with modification drawings if necessary and supply the Hammond enclosure with everything done. This totally streamlines processes for customers and saves time, effort and cost. Recently, for example, we were able to save one customer in the rail industry 60% compared with the cost of buying a standard enclosure and having modifications carried out by a third party.”
