Bridgeport Exhibits Award-Winning Mighty-Rite® Split Grounding Bushing at NECA 2014

Bridgeport product named NECA Showstopper Winner at event

STRATFORD, Conn. – Bridgeport Fittings highlighted its ‘See the Difference’ message to contractors at NECA 2014 with a spotlight on Bridgeport’s Mighty-Rite® Split Grounding Bushing. The innovative solution was named ‘NECA Showstopper Winner’ at the NECA event. Earlier this year, the product was voted the Silver Award Product of the Year by ECM magazine’s national readership.

Mighty-Rite Split Grounding Bushings (SGB) can be installed before pulling wire or after, eliminating expensive rework. This innovative feature also makes pulling larger conductor wire easier when contractors can install grounding bushings after the pull. The patented SGB Series features a low profile, captive screws and a hinged design that adjusts and aligns more easily, even in tight spots. The bushing’s adjustable grounding lug accepts wire easier.

The award-winning Mighty-Rite Split Grounding Bushing exemplifies Bridgeport’s ‘See the Difference’ message that its time- and labor-saving solutions are noticeably superior to competitive products in the same category. The Bridgeport solutions translate into more productivity for the electrical contractor in getting the job ‘done fast, done right.’

Bridgeport Fittings is a leading supplier of quality fittings to the industrial, commercial and residential channels of the electrical industry. Nearly three-quarters of Bridgeport’s product volume is manufactured in the U.S.
