March 26, 2014 – Mitsubishi Electric Corp. says its Power Distribution Systems Centre (PDSC) located in Marugame, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan, has reached a milestone this month with the production of its one millionth medium-voltage circuit breaker. Congratulations!
The PDSC facility was established as the Marugame Factory in 1979 to produce medium-voltage circuit breakers, such as vacuum breakers and gas circuit breakers. The PDSC’s cumulative shipments of circuit breakers units exceeded one million units in March 2014, the year marking the facility’s 35th anniversary. The one millionth unit was a VF-8/13 model 7.2kV vacuum circuit breaker, Mitsubishi’s main model.
