About Us - Hubbell Incorporated Today

in North America, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
The Company participates in a joint venture in Taiwan, and maintains sales offices
in Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Product research, marketing, and sales are conducted in this country and abroad.
Because the Company has been an integral part of the growth of the electrical equipment
industry and a pioneer in the development of new products and technologies, the
Company has established a foundation of basic strengths on which to build its future
Fundamentally, Hubbell Incorporated’s commitment to electrical equipment manufacture
has enabled the Company to maintain its focus consistently, and to apply its energies
to the technology of generating, transmitting, and utilizing electrical energy.
Electricity is the most adaptable form of energy, and the one which will power the
21st century from basic industry to the most advanced electronic devices. The expertise
developed during the first hundred years is an asset vital to the Company and its
customers in the future.
Diversification of product and market will provide the advantage of flexibility;
i.e., the benefits to the Company of counter-cyclical markets (to provide opportunity
in a dynamic economy), and the benefit to customers of a single source of supply
for new construction, modernization, or rehabilitation. Through internal growth
and acquisition, in the future as in the past, Hubbell Incorporated’s breadth-of-line
will expand the Company’s position among the industry’s leaders.
The Company’s tradition of quality, most apparent in its products but a part
of its operations as well, will continue its contribution in the future. To Hubbell
management, quality is an emphasis on asset deployment to provide the flexibility
and resources to implement planned growth and consistent return to shareholders.
To Hubbell employees, quality is the focus on each day’s work in design, engineering,
testing, and production. To customers, Hubbell quality is the superior operation,
reliable performance, and dependable service which distinguish Hubbell products
The Company’s network of independent electrical distributors, who provide
Hubbell products and their own expertise to the end-user, are a critical asset.
Some of these distributors have been associated with the Company since the early
years; others have joined as the industry expanded. Together, they form a partnership
with Hubbell Incorporated which has played a large part in the past growth, and
which will plan a larger part in the future.
The combination of these – commitment to the industry, diversification of
product and market, a continuing tradition of quality, partnership with the independent
electrical distributor, and the experience of accomplishment in research and development
– have forged Hubbell Incorporated’s exceptional records of growth.
The same comprehensive corporate capability will expand Hubbell’s growth in
the commercial, telecommunications, lighting, utility, industrial, and consumer
markets of the future.
