Products include DIN-rail mount terminal blocks, chassis-mount terminal blocks, PCB-mount terminal blocks, relays, signal conditioners, power supplies, surge suppressors, and the Wago-I/O-System.
Wago Corp. expanded its North American headquarters. The expansion, which began August 2007, increased the company’s product manufacturing and storage capacity from 60,000 sq. ft. to 75,000 sq. ft., including 36,000 product locations.
“The increased size of our organization validates to our customers that we are committed to them for the long haul; they can always rely upon us to provide the support that they deserve,” says Tom Artmann, Wago president. “This expansion allows us to provide the same strong levels of quality and accuracy. Now, we have the added benefit of delivering thousands of additional items from stock,” he adds.
Wago provides spring pressure connection technology designed to eliminate loose wires as a result of vibration and temperature cycling. The system is said to provide reliable, corrosion-resistant, maintenance-free connections, making terminal blocks and I/O modules easier and faster.
