Today, EPI-Electrical Enclosures and Engineering offers a complete array of standard product groups that fulfill the many product applications demanded by the marketplace. This section also provides some unique product applications designed by our engineering department and fabricated by our plant production team.
In the late 1960’s to the mid-1970’s, NEMA’s standard NEMA 1 and NEMA 3 enclosures and wireways were our initial introduction to providing products to our electrical industry. Yet, non-standard design and size enclosures like the 4ft x 4ft x 4ft junction boxes destined for the South Texas Nuclear Plant or the 5ft x 5ft x 5ft boxes for the Coors Golden Aluminum Plant began to signal things to come.
Yet, by the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, distributors began heavily purchasing standard inventory sizing as the marketplace boomed. Although this helped produces sales it also yielded higher product inventory levels. This period also experienced an oil field expansion that we became a part of as well.
By the mid-1980’s we added on our industrial lines of NEMA 4, 4X and 12 enclosures, wireways, and consoles. By the early 1990’s we were proud to be part of supplying products for the Spacecraft Endeavor, Sea Wolf II, and the world’s largest robot. Also, by this time we had honed our design and engineering skills to provide services and secondary bussed products. Examples of this secondary switchgear are the hundreds of bussed wireway for multi-metered shopping centers ranging from 600 to 4000amps. Also, bussed tap boxes ranged from 1000 to 8,000amp such as the main entry for One Water Way 71-story Tower in Houston, Texas. Currently, we are working on design and specifications for a first ever 10,000amp Bussed Secondary for an office building in Wisconsin, Illinois.
Lastly, we believe that our sales and customer service personnel receive the best training and receive continuing education on NEMA standards and engineering specifications to best assist you. However, we are very proud of the job and services provided by our engineering department. They continually communicate with engineers, contractors, and others to provide the best solutions and product applications in our industry.
