Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

Nov 21, 2018

ElectrozadElectrozad has enhanced its process solution capabilities by creating and launching a process business unit serving customers in the food and beverage, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, water/wastewater, and biotechnology verticals.

“The creation of this strategic unit provides the ability for a heightened focus on strategies, partnerships, and solutions for our customers specific to this space,” says William C. Smith, President of Electrozad Supply Company. “It will enable our team to be more creative and innovative as we continue to expand this business.” 

As the authorized distributor for Rockwell Automation, Electrozad first introduced its customers to the modern distributed control system (DCS) with the launch of Rockwell’s PlantPAx system in 2008. The system combines the plant-wide control technologies and unmatched scalability of Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture with the core capabilities expected in a world-class distributed control system (DCS). Since the platform’s release, it has continually evolved and expanded. 

In 2016, Electrozad Supply became an authorized channel partner of Endress+Hauser, a global leader in process measurement and instrumentation. Electrozad Supply now can provide its process automation customers with new cost saving opportunities through the enhanced integration of Endress+Hauser’s measurement technology with the Rockwell Automation platform. Pre-tested and validated designs from Rockwell Automation and Endress+Hauser help reduce costs associated with bringing new measuring points or a new production line into the manufacturing facility. It also minimizes the risk of adopting new technology. 

Most recently, an essential partnership has been signed with Samson Controls to further Electrozad’s offering as a complete process solutions supplier. Samson develops and manufactures process control solutions, including valves, actuators, and accessories. 

Along with the additional process vendors, Electrozad has expanded their dedicated personnel by adding a Process and Solutions Specialist position to lead the technical aspects of the business. Graeme Weaver has brought an extensive design background to the Electrozad team, advancing the value of early involvement and continued engagement by the company in a process project.
