National Readership Survey Votes Bridgeport Fittings'Mighty-Rite® Split Grounding Bushing Silver Award Winner

Bridgeport solution among top three “products of the year” in trade competition

STRATFORD, Conn. — Bridgeport Fittings’ Mighty-Rite® Split Grounding Bushing has been voted the Silver Award winner in ECM magazine’s annual Product of the Year competition. Subscribers to the national trade publication chose Bridgeport’s winning entry from 200 submissions by nearly 100 manufacturers.

“We are thrilled and honored to be selected a national award winner in ECM’s Product of the Year competition,” said Paul Suzio, Bridgeport Fittings president. “The recognition is especially gratifying because it reflects the opinion of our peers in the electrical industry.”

To qualify for the overall honor, Bridgeport won first place in the Connectors Fittings category. More than 130,000 professionals in the electrical field subscribe to ECM.

“Just like last year, our Product of the Year competition attracted a record-setting number of entries,” said Mike Eby, EC&M’s editor-in-chief. “After two fierce rounds of voting, three products reigned supreme. Bridgeport Fittings’ Mighty-Rite split grounding bushings offer installers a great option when they run across an installation where wire has already been pulled in and terminated.”

Bridgeport Fittings’ Mighty-Rite Split Grounding Bushings 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 design, 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.

Mighty-Rite Split Grounding Bushings are part of Bridgeport’s exclusive and innovative Mighty-B™ line of high-quality, high-performance products that allow contractors to safely and easily install electrical systems while 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.
