|Cooper Security’s website, packaging, catalogues and brochures have already started to adopt the Eaton name
Power management company, Eaton, has announced that Cooper Security is now Eaton. This important development will provide customers with a wider and more diverse product portfolio, which is backed up by unrivalled levels of knowledge and expertise.
The integration process so far has been seamless and installers have experienced no changes to the levels of product availability, service and support they have come to expect from Eaton’s security business and its Menvier and Scantronic products. During this process customers can continue to purchase products from exactly the same wholesalers and distributors they have worked with before.
The company’s website, packaging, catalogues and brochures have already started to adopt the Eaton name, style and terminology, and customers will increasingly see it used within trade publications, promotional material and the channel from now on.
Matthew Phelps, managing director of Eaton’s security business, commented, "We are incredibly pleased with how smooth the integration process has been and, just as importantly, the response from our partners has been extremely positive. We will continue to deliver high quality products and I firmly believe that being part of one of the world’s leading electrical businesses provides our customers with a wealth of new possibilities and opportunities."
Eaton’s legacy of innovation in product design and manufacturing stretches back over 100 years and it now has 102,000 employees and sells products to customers in more than 175 countries. The company has become synonymous with power distribution, circuit protection and back-up power protection systems that set a new benchmark in protecting people and buildings.

For those involved with the specification, installation and maintenance of IP CCTV, access control and lone worker protection, ensuring continuity of power and minimising downtime is increasingly important. For example, by drawing on Eaton’s range of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), installers can integrate this technology into security systems to manage energy consumption, increase uptime and lower costs. Doing so also offers customers the valuable peace of mind that comes with keeping their personnel, equipment and data as safe as possible.
Eaton’s security business is unique in its ability to utilise such high standards of power protection expertise. It will also benefit from enhanced research and development (R&D) capabilities, making it a dynamic and forward thinking market player, which provides security that can be totally relied on. Installers will also be able to benefit from joining one of the electrical industry’s most revered partner programmes, details of which will be announced later this year.
"We have always taken enormous pride in our determination to work closely with our customers to understand and solve the challenges they face today and those that may come tomorrow," concluded Matthew Phelps. "Now, as part of Eaton, I’m confident that we are better placed than ever to meet these objectives and deliver the cutting-edge technology that is expected from us."
