Exhibiting at ENERGYx2020 in this informative interview Paul Morrow, UK & Ireland Manager for Klauke, part of the Emerson Group and world class manufacturers of cable cutting and crimping tools, discusses electrical safety and the recent launch of the KLAUKE Orange range of fully insulated tools that have set the standard within the global utility industry.
Health & Safety is a main pillar of Energy Network Events and the KLAUKE Orange range is a huge leap forward in the development of battery-powered cabling tools for the cutting and crimping of overhead lines and underground cables.
Paul Morrow describes how Klauke was started in 1879 by two brothers in Germany originally making high quality pliers for the watch-making industry employing only 5 people. In 1960 when electrification become more popular Klauke shifted to developing cable lugs.
In 2018 they were acquired by Emerson and along with Greenlee and Rigid, Klauke can now service all the mechanical, electrical and plumbing requirements in the market.
