Rittal UK Celebrates 40th Anniversary Year 1979-2019
2019-07-01. Rittal Ltd is proud to be celebrating 40 years in the UK. We opened our operations in Rotherham in July 1979 where we provide distribution, sales and marketing support for our customers. Our Rotherham distribution centre is not the only Rittal presence in the UK. With sites at Canary Wharf in London and manufacturing operations in Plymouth – which recently won the “Manufacture of the year award”, we’re one of the industry’s leading lights for providing solutions for our customers’ needs.
40 Years of innovation
Rittal UK is part of a huge international success story. Our core product range of enclosures are exported all over the world and are found in more than 90 percent of all industrial sectors. One of our most popular products, the AE Enclosure, has sold more than 35 million units alone.
Rittal’s focus on innovation and reinvention permeates all parts of our organisation, even across long-standing and highly successful product lines. We’ve a determination to embrace Industry 4.0 as well as a customer-first approach to product development.
For example, we developed the VX25 – providing a system that delivers beyond the market’s expectations. We’ve also developed the highly-anticipated and soon to be launched AX & KX range of enclosures. These developments incorporate key elements that support a digital value chain for panel building and switchgear construction.
Seamless Value Chain Enhancements
Rittal, and its sister software company Eplan, have sought to create a seamless value chain for customers through enhanced process steps in engineering, design, work preparation and production. This approach and the delivery of an end-to-end solution – from design software and digital twins to automated systems for modifying enclosures – means Rittal can give our customers boosted productivity and efficiency across all aspects of the enclosure creation process and beyond.
We’re helping customers to capitalise on the myriad of opportunities that are being created across the global technology sector in automation, the Internet of Things and cloud-based computing.
We’d like to thank our customers and all those who have helped us on our journey – here’s to the next forty years – and beyond.
