Power transmission: Kerite, a manufacturer of high quality insulated utility and industrial power cable, has an impressive track record of responding to emergency requests from customers, getting it done right, the first time.
Founded in 1854, Kerite is a subsidiary of Marmon Utility, a Marmon Wire and Cable /Berkshire Hathaway Company. Kerite’s product offering includes HV power transmission cable, in voltages ranging from 46kV through 138kV, and specialty cable products.
Along with the legacy of their strong product offering, with HV cable that has unsurpassed life, Kerite has historically offered emergency response solutions through Kerite Cable Services (KCS), a customer service package that provides a single-source solution to any HV cable challenge. KCS takes the know-how and years of expertise of the Kerite workforce and delivers value immediately, with the ability to put solutions into motion right away.
KCS is able to mobilize certified personnel to the location – anywhere in North America – make an assessment of the specific repair or restoration needs and challenges of the project, identify a plan of action including cost proposals and timing, and ultimately execute the work upon approval. The entire effort is handled expeditiously and efficiently, with an internal streamlined process that prevents bottlenecks and identifies the work as a priority.
Whether the emergency is responding to a power outage due to a weather catastrophe or a line or equipment failure of any kind, Kerite leverages the relationships they’ve established over the years with key suppliers, to ensure that any of the necessary components of an emergency response project – such as termination ends – are in stock and available. Kerite is large enough to have the critical mass and resources in place to support the program, but efficient and nimble enough to get the job done on time.
Kerite, founded in 1854 and headquartered in Seymour, Connecticut, is a member of the Marmon Utility Group of companies. For 160 years, Kerite has manufactured the highest quality insulated utility transmission and distribution power cable, as well as industrial power cable. We offer a full suite of turnkey installation and field service capabilities through our Kerite Cable Services group.
