Providing service that goes a step beyond matters to us. We provide support through your installation and test all products to ANSI and CSA standards. From coast to coast throughout North America, our logistics network has been developed to ship to you within hours.

This means on a Friday night leading into a long weekend, we were fully prepared to help one of our customers. The customer called to say they suffered a major explosion in their electrical room, and their 200-amp molded case breaker had been melted! This stopped production and every minute they didn’t have a replacement component was costing them money.

Because we are available 24-hours a day and have the ability to use video chatting, our knowledgeable technician was able to assist in identifying the Freedom 2100 bucket and deliver a solution… FAST.

We provided the client with a replacement assembled from the same size buckets and correct stabs from our large selection of inventory. After utilizing our in-house testing for quality control, we were able to get the customer what they needed to get back up and running… on a long weekend!

When production stops, hundreds of thousands of dollars can be lost. Trust RS Breakers & Controls to have the comprehensive inventory and experience you need.

That’s the RS Difference in action.
