The two production sites of Plansee BU Power T/D, located in Seon and Shanghai, have been named as preferred suppliers to Schneider Electric for the fifth time in a row. Plansee manufactures switch contact components from WCu and CuCr for Schneider Electric.
“We are proud of our employees’ performance in a difficult market environment. They were successful to differentiate our offer in such a competitive market environment. This is not given and clearly shows that we have to up the ante every year to maintain our status as one of the preferred suppliers of a leading energy technology company with 90,000 suppliers,” stated Frank Müller, Head of BU Power.
Plansee uses Powder Metallurgy to produce the metallic composite materials in switch contacts. The process offers harmonized material properties and an exceptionally homogeneous material composition.
