The MARECHAL Electric Group, which celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2012, is headquartered in Saint Maurice, near Paris. Its products are manufactured at the company’s R & D and manufacturing complex in Normandy, France and sold internationally mainly through subsidiaries and associated companies. MARECHAL Australia’s head office is located at 14 Kingsley Close, Rowville, Victoria.
MARECHAL® DECONTACTORTM products feature a quick-release button and an integral load-break switch which allow any authorised employee to quickly and safely connect or disconnect equipment, even under load, without the need to wait for a qualified electrician.
Product groups now include:
• Industrial power supply and motor protection
• Signal and control
• High current applications
• High temperature applications
• Self-ejecting systems for emergency vehicles
• ATEX explosive atmosphere products
• Distribution boxes and other products
Easy to install, water-tight, and resistant to chemicals, MARECHAL® DECONTACTORTM products allow equipment to be safely isolated from the electrical supply in seconds. As an alternative to hard-wired equipment, the MARECHAL® DECONTACTORTM minimises down-time, increases productivity, and provides greater operational flexibility for static and mobile equipment. Qualification to international standards confirms the reliable and sustainable performance of MARECHAL’s products.
The company spends 5% of its sales revenue on R & D, which is much more than most other manufacturers in the electrical industry in EU, USA and elsewhere spend, as a proportion of their sales.
