GILMER, Texas—Eaton Crouse-Hinds and Robroy Industries are both leaders within the electrical industry, sharing the same core values including quality and consistency. This year they celebrate 50 years of partnership that comes in the form of various roles as mutual customers, education partners, and as a licensee.
The relationship began in 1967. Robroy Industries had recently started their PVC coated conduit line and second generation leader and Robroy President, Bob McIlroy, was determined to create a corrosion resistant system by adding PVC coated fittings to the product offering. While searching for a steel fittings supplier, Robroy chose to partner with Crouse-Hinds who was known for their superior quality and their longevity within the electrical industry. Not only did Robroy and Crouse-Hinds share the same passion for making quality products, both companies had significant history in the electrical market as Crouse-Hinds was established in 1897 and Robroy Industries in 1905.
To celebrate the 50 year anniversary, Crouse-Hinds by Eaton executives attended the Robroy Industries Dessert Reception at this years’ National NAED meeting held in Boston. Both companies reminisced on the many joint ventures and successes throughout the years and shared a cake celebrating 50 years of quality, trust, partnership and success.
