For more than 60 years, Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures has used its extensive experience with innovative engineering and manufacturing to solve unique requirements in a range of electrical enclosure applications.
Because of its reliable performance capabilities, Stahlin enclosures are now the most widely specified enclosures in the world.
Stahlin currently serves a number of OEMs that purchase and ship Stahlin enclosures internationally for use in high performance systems. Many OEMs purchase Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures for their wide range of design options, such as modifying enclosures with CNC machining, colors or screen-printing at the Stahlin factory. Plus, Stahlin provides customers with a 10-year manufacturer warranty --- the most extensive warranty available for enclosures in North America.
Roger Schroder, Engineering Manager at Stahlin, states: “Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures chose Univolt UK for this unique partnership due to Univolt UK’s solid reputation for high quality products and technical support. The Univolt team has already visited our US factory for technical training in the 4th quarter of 2014. Stahlin has also had a team in the UK training Univolt personnel. Stahlin team members will also visit the UK regularly for additional support and product introduction. I personally was based at Univolt’s main office center in in Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom during periods of the 2nd and 3rd quarter of 2015, where I was available to make joint calls to give UK customers technical advice. Now the Univolt team is fully up-to-speed, yet we will still be available to support them from our US head office and have follow-up visits for further support already planned.”
David Mattin Managing Director of Univolt UK adds: “We believe there is a significant opportunity in the UK for Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures --- in part because there currently are more than 900 renewable energy projects on the books, worth in excess of £4.0 billion. There is also a commitment to make the UK a leading manufacturer of wind power products, and this is backed with more than 1,500 projects worth another £40 billion. We expect to see Stahlin enclosures used in a variety of external applications such as solar farms, wind farms, ports, harbors, railways and chemical plants, as well as interior aggressive environments such as food processing and manufacturing.”
Univolt UK has developed a product stock profile that covers a range of Stahlin’s most popular enclosures for the launch of Stahlin products in the UK. Inventory will be held in Welwyn Garden City. Univolt has easy access to products with fast turn-around from Stahlin’s factory in Belding, Michigan. Univolt will also be implementing stock into a network of wholesalers around the country to support and create demand.
All of Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures feature SolarGuard®, a non-halogenated fiberglass formula system that beats the effects of outdoor exposure, as well as provides chemical and flame resistance. SolarGuard®, in extensive comparison testing, outperformed other available SMC formulations by as much as 60% in its ability to retain gloss and color after exposure to concentrated UV light. This is now backed by 12-plus years of performance in extreme applications, such as the high temperatures of desert environments in Western Texas.
