Hubbell Power Systems Distribution Center Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Centralia, MO employees will celebrate the operation of the Company's 381,562 square foot Distribution Center (DC).
During hurricanes Gustav, Hanna and Ike earlier this year, the DC was a core contributor to the HUBBELL ability to ship almost 2.5 million connectors, fittings and hardware, 195,000 cutouts and fuse links, 78,000 insulators and arresters as well as 10,000 tools and more than 33,000 anchors, fiberglass construction products and overhead switches to the storm-ravaged areas of the country. 153 trucks were used by the DC and other HUBBELL plants to get the material to utility customers and distributors.
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced recently that 24 of the 35 trucks featured in the recent CALSTART "Worlds Largest Hybrid Ride & Drive" used Eaton hybrid power systems. The event took place during the 2008 Hybrid Truck Users Forum (HTUF) National Conference in South Bend, Ind., October 14-16, and it reinforced Eaton's growing leadership role in the development and commercialization of hybrid transportation solutions.
