Princeps signs distribution agreement with Hammond Manufacturing
Princeps, the accredited specialist distributor of obsolete and difficult-to-source electronic, electrical and e-mech components for advanced industries, announces that it has signed an authorised distribution agreement with Hammond Manufacturing. Princeps is supplying Hammond’s complete portfolio of electrical enclosures, which can also be modified and customised in-house to suit specific customer requirements.
Hammond manufactures a huge range of electrical enclosures in metallic and non-metallic materials - mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, ABS, polyester, GRP – as well as various ranges of small electronics enclosures and accessories.
There are enclosures in many sizes and styles suitable for the vast majority of applications to protect delicate electrical and electronic installations, including (depending on IP and IK rating) models that are waterproof, resistant to particle ingress such as dust or chemical sprays and robust enough to withstand other hazards found in commercial and industrial environments.
Hammond has the in-house capability to modify any of the thousands of its enclosures to suit challenging designs where a standard solution is not suitable. Services include non-standard sizes, alternative materials, cut-outs, punched holes, louvres, pre-installed accessories, hinge changes, special paint colours, silk screening and more.
David Nash, Sales Director, Princeps, commented: “Hammond enclosures are renowned for their variety and quality and we are delighted to have been appointed as a Hammond authorized distributor, which further enhances our capability to provide complete customer solutions.
Hammond’s in-house customization service saves time and effort: instead of having to carry out modifications or sub-contract thus work out themselves, we work with our customers to understand their requirements, assist with modification drawings if necessary and supply the Hammond enclosure with everything done.
This totally streamlines processes for customers and saves time, effort and cost. Recently, for example, we were able to save one customer in the rail industry 60% compared with the cost of buying a standard enclosure and having modifications carried out by a third party.”
Princeps simplifies the sourcing of safe, traceable, hard-to-find and obsolete components for customers in the hi-rel sector, including aerospace & defence, mass-transit, medical and other advanced industries. With a commitment to quality and service, Princeps holds both AS9120 and AS6081-accreditations and is the trusted single-source supplier of parts from thousands of manufacturers, taking responsibility for counterfeit mitigation, obsolescence management and smoothing supply chain issues for its customers. The company also offers kitting solutions, including full project management and vendor tail reduction.
Unrestricted in its access to manufacturers and product ranges through its worldwide network of thousands of manufacturer-authorised sources, Princeps combines flexibility and best-pricing with full traceability.
