October 12, 2020 – Montreal-based CO7 Technologies reports it has acquired the assets and intellectual property of three product lines from Schneider Electric: pole-mounted fused cutouts (Securupt), vacuum station breakers (doghouse breakers) and dead-tank station breakers (VOX).
With this acquisition, the company “strives to excel in the design and manufacturing of Canadian-made products to better serve North American and international markets”.
“The proven reliability of these three product lines with our highly experienced team ensures continuity, commitment and development for current and future customers” says Christian Cossette, CO7 president.
The Securupt fused cutouts have been installed across Quebec’s entire electrical network for nearly 30 years, says CO7, while doghouse and VOX medium-voltage circuit breakers are critical parts of electrical substations around the world.
All assets related to the three product lines—including production equipment from two Schneider facilities (Brossard [Quebec] and Regensburg [Germany])—will be moved to the CO7 offices in Montreal.
CO7 Technologies designs electric power protection and distribution equipment.
