establishing ROOTS the Early Days
satinAMERICAN established its roots by gaining expertise servicing circuit breakers designed in the late 1930’s. Breakers and Switchgear were seen in virtually every industrial application. Between the 1930‘s and 1960’s, breakers and switchgear evolved with varying, overload devices, current sensors and time delays to name a few areas. Satin remained flexible and adabpted teh company‘s expertise by continuously training capable technical personnel in retrofitting and remanufacturing gear with the latest technologies of the times.
finding a NICHE
New breaker designs emerged during the 1980’ as aging configurations were reaching the end of their useful life. Because the old power breakers were well made and expected to have a long service life, Satin‘s footprint grew in critical applications requireing continous operation. Satin stayed in step with the times, ready to support the changing industry, replacing older generation equipment no longer supported by the OEM’s who always recommended new replacements versus maintining existing equpiment. We listened to customers who found replacing existing equipment to often be unnecessary and naturally very expensive. Complete replacement of breakers and switchgear required significant downtime and lost productivity with little, if any net gain.
