January 27, 2017 – As it integrates Burndy Canada into the organization, Hubbell Canada revealed an overall structural change—effective January 1, 2017—that, says Hubbell, will help them transition to a single operating business later this year.

Steve Fraser, director, marketing & sales for Hubbell Commercial & Industrial (HCI) will transfer marketing & sales responsibility for the Harsh & Hazardous business to Hubbell Construction & Energy (HCE), effective January 1, 2017.

Reporting to Eric Shaban, VP, HCE marketing & sales, are:

• Chris Mealin, strategic accounts manager, Harsh & Hazardous Markets
• Marty Cole, harsh & hazardous codes, standards & specifications manager
• Craig Moffatt, harsh & hazardous brand manager

Chris Mealin has spent 11 years at Hubbell (HCE), and is currently responsible for Alberta’s oil & gas market. Prior to this, Chris held the position of Western region manager for Burndy Canada.

Marty Cole (right) has been with Hubbell Canada LP for more than 35 years, and has been involved with harsh & hazardous electrical products for most of that time. He is a member of the CE Code Part I, Section 18 subcommittee, chair of CSA’s integrated committee on hazardous locations (ICHL), and more.

Craig Moffatt has been with Hubbell Canada LP since 2008, serving as brand manager for Harsh & Hazardous Products and Hubbell Industrial Brands for the past five years.

Under the new structure, the HCE sales organization will see additional responsibility for expanding the Harsh & Hazardous business as it transitions from the HCI group over the next several months. Beyond the sales and marketing changes above, nothing changes in the way orders are processed, managed and serviced through the Pickering facility, says Hubbell Canada.
