Ea­ton Elec­trial play host to town MP

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

MP NICKY Morgan paid a visit to Ea­ton Elec­tri­cal Prod­ucts Lim­ited in Bur­ton-on-the-Wolds, a global com­pany with a 2017 turnover of $21b.

The site in Bur­ton-on-the-Wolds, which em­ploys 100 peo­ple, is fo­cused on com­mer­cial and en­gi­neer­ing ac­tiv­i­ties of Buss­mann se­ries fuses and Ro­tary Cam and switch-dis­con­nec­tors.

Mrs Morgan was greeted by Bill But­ters, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and was in­tro­duced to the var­i­ous teams lo­cated in Bur­ton.

At the site’s Cus­tomer Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre, An­thony Gar­linge-War­ren, se­nior field ap­pli­ca­tions en­gi­neer, went through the many ap­pli­ca­tions fuses are used in: from fac­to­ries, rail, re­new­able en­ergy to elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

Mrs Morgan then had a tour of the test­ing lab­o­ra­tory and then stopped by the com­pany’s lat­est ad­di­tion to the site ‘Bug­ging­ham pallets’, an en­vi­ron­men­tal des­ig­nated area where re­cy­cled ob­jects are used (old pallets, hard hats, safety shoes, old fuse bod­ies) to build an area where bugs and but­ter­flies can ‘visit’ and pros­per.
