Voltage Revolution Tour

PLAINVILLE, CT - GE Consumer & Industrial's Electrical Distribution business has announced plans to take its product portfolio directly to the home cities of electrical distributors and industrial end-users throughout North America. For a six-month period beginning in August 2008, GE's new Low Voltage Revolution Tour will travel more than 12,000 miles, visiting 31 cities throughout the United States and Canada, spending between two and four days in each major metropolitan area.

The tour will feature a 45-foot industrial trailer that contains the latest in GE electrical distribution technology and applications, and each tour stop will include digital presentations from GE product managers as well as on-site product demonstrations. Industrial distributors, consulting engineers, original equipment manufacturers, and a variety of industrial end-users will have the opportunity to meet with GE representatives and interact with the low voltage lineup in person.

"We've been exploring various ways of getting our low voltage lineup in front of our customers and partners who need it most," explains Dick Jackman, General Manager of Industrial Products at GE. "The tour will give them a chance to touch and feel these new products and see how they can work for them."
