Russelectric 400March 5, 2019

Siemens recently announced it has closed the acquisition of Massachusetts-based Russelectric, a U.S. manufacturer of power control systems including paralleling switchgear and automatic transfer switches. The transaction, first announced in early October 2018, brings together the companies’ complementary electrical power portfolios and service organizations. These combined efforts will help better address growing power reliability, security and affordability needs across critical markets like data centers, public infrastructure, and healthcare.

Russelectric’s 400 employees across its manufacturing hubs in Hingham, MA and Broken Arrow, OK will expand Siemens’ existing U.S. footprint of over 50 manufacturing, R&D and digital hubs and its 50,000 U.S. employee base.

“We’re thrilled to officially welcome Russelectric to the Siemens family with the closing of this acquisition”, said Barry Powell, Vice President and Business Unit Head, Siemens Low Voltage & Products, North America. “Our teams are ready to work together across the low voltage power market to provide technologies that ensure critical installations receive uninterrupted, secure power.”

“Today marks the turning of a page in the history of Russelectric, starting of a new chapter of growth in our current markets as well as outside of them,” said Dorian Alexandrescu, President and CEO of Russelectric Inc. “The synergies with Siemens are significant, and we are all looking forward to seeing them come to life as part of the new organization”.

Russelectric will now operate as “Russelectric, A Siemens Business”. Terms of this transaction are not disclosed.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
