Dozens of Employees in the Dark After Electrical Arc Flash


Cottrell Trailers is the industry leader in over-the-road car haulers and equipment. Recently, CEC professionals were called for emergency service that had dozens of employees in the dark as a result of an electrical arc flash.  Loose connections on breakers caused two major failures in the circuit panel.  CEC installed a temporary solution to keep the day shift and the upcoming night shift operational while new parts were ordered for immediate delivery. Parts arrived, crew dispatched, permanent repair completed and our customer has minimal downtime. This is an example of how CEC keeps its customer’s production going day and night.

Thank you to your team for their quick response to our power issues in Shop 6 yesterday. I appreciate the way CEC handles emergency situations. Everyone had a sense of urgency to determine and repair the issue. It is a pleasure to work with you, and your people.”

UPS or UPS?  

They Are Different

The United Parcel Service and an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) are both delivery systems that focus on keeping the world running smoothly.  UPS (not the parcel delivery one) is a device that turns on IMMEDIATELY when a power interruption occurs!  

With any business, crucial power loss for data-voice networks (critical switches), IT hardware (including servers) or data transfers creates challenges and undue expenses.  A UPS’s job is to prevent that event from happening. With a UPS installed by CEC, your critical data is safe and your business operations infrastructure is protected!  

As you consider the digital age and power needs for your business, consider a 30-minute visit with Caldwell Electrical Contractors to discuss the impact of a millisecond interruption of power or a review of your current UPS.   Consider the 10 questions below prior to your FREE Consultation.
