Supplier Spotlight: Amprobe

Our next supplier spotlight focuses on Amprobe, a manufacturer that provides clamp meters, multimeters and other useful measurement tools for electricians and technicians who troubleshoot heating, venting, and air conditioning applications.

Amprobe has taken a giant step since it began production in 1948, where they started selling their inductive clamp meter under the Pyramid Instrument Company. Their clamp meter, originally named Amprobe, was patented in 1950 and dubbed as the first of many new tool inventions brought forth by the company.

Out of the 500 items in their inventory, the clamp meter and the wire tracer were first introduced to the world by Amprobe, tools that electricians continue to use to this day. Among them followed several more products, making the company one of the few to consistently introduce refreshing measurement solutions. It continues to be the company’s strongest attribute.

Amprobe moved to employ more manufacturing locations in New York and Florida as well as a headquarters in Washington, all within a matter of decades. In the midst of these transformations, Amprobe remained in tune with their company goals and values, both of which centered on providing handy and accessible test tools for applications put out by industrial, commercial and residential industries.

Currently, Amprobe’s Residential Digital Multimeter is among a collection of its popular products. The tool is specially made for recording and measuring receptacles, switches and extension cords as well as its ability to efficiently double-check light bulbs and fuses.

Supplier Spotlight: Duracell Canada

Today’s supplier spotlight features the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end alkaline batteries, Duracell (Canada).

From being a part of the 1969 Apollo 13 mission on the moon to the 1970 introduction of its trademark black and copper colors, Duracell is no stranger to spotlights. Their batteries have integrated into our everyday lives without fail and often without us realizing it, which has propelled them to grand prominence and success.

While they may be just as accessible and applicable to other brands, Duracell has effectively made their product to appear like they’re entirely in their own lane.

From joysticks and flashlights to heavy-duty vehicles and warehouse tools, Duracell’s catalog of batteries serves the need of those who require power. In each of their batteries, Duracell constantly incorporates dependable, cutting-edge technologies that offer long-lasting endurance. The same technology has also sparked many of the company’s firsts.

The world watched as Duracell’s batteries were the first used to land on the moon. Eyes lit up as they became first to help turn on many of today’s regularly-used electrical systems and appliances. It is thanks to Duracell’s batteries and its integrated technology that they’re able to provide innovative marketing power-up solutions for themselves, thus molding their batteries to become something of a worldwide standard.

While Duracell’s 9V, AA, and AAA alkaline batteries have become a simple item to check off the list, it’s often easy to forget that our watches and garage door openers are powered by their ever-charged coin batteries or that their hearing-aid batteries make the difference between almost hearing nothing to hearing everything.

While their batteries are a primary priority, Duracell also offers products to keep you going. Whether it’s providing a brightly lit hiking trail under the night sky through landscape lighting or providing the right amount of illumination during electrical work through trusty headlamps, Duracell provides plenty of solutions. For those arduous times when a vehicle breaks down, Duracell power solutions are available.

Thanks to their Duracell Power line, the company is able to provide jumper cables, car battery chargers and a small selection of power inverters, converters, and backup power units.

For more information on Duracell, be sure to visit their website at https://www.duracell.com.

Supplier Spotlight: Platt Cases

For our next supplier spotlight, we’ll be taking a look at Platt, maker of industry and business-savvy cases and carrying bags.

Whether you need a case for transporting files to and from work or need a heavy-duty tool bag to safely hold all of your equipment, Platt makes sure to employ the same level of detail and reliability that company founder Benjamin Platt instilled in his leather saddle harnesses and suitcases some 90 years ago.

By applying the company’s core values of quality, accessibility, innovation and punctuality to each bag order, this allows Platt to offer same-day shipping on all products, including customization of cases.

Customization is one of Platt’s best attributes. Each bag can be customized by color, case pallet, hardware, logo, special nameplates, and embroidery thus giving customers free reign to personalize the items they order. Through these customizable options, Platt maintains its commitment to continuous innovation and attention to consumer trends. After all, Platt was the first to put combination number locks on luggage, cushioned handles, as well as custom hardware and urethane pallets.

For those who want something simple without sacrificing durability, Platt’s currently sells blow-molded cases, made with a strong polyethylene shell and include “pick-n-pluck” foam for special configuration. Platt also has a line of sewn handbags, tote bags, backpacks and tool management bags and accessories.
