On July 23, Eaton, a global power management company, today announced that it has signed four new partnership agreements for the distribution of its Circuit Protection and Control (CPC) and Power Distribution (PD) products.

The authorized distributors that have been appointed as of this year are: Advanced Information Technologies Corporation (AIT CORP), Nam Phuong Viet Technology Joint Stock Company (NPV Technology JSC), Dat Vinh Tien Company Limited (Dat Vinh Tien) and Saigon Electric Co., Ltd. (SGE).

“At Eaton, we believe in helping organizations use power more efficiently and effectively, to ensure that business productivity and sustainability are not compromised. Every minute of downtime could mean a loss in revenue and potential safety implications, especially in the industrial and commercial sectors,” said Gary Ang, Country Manager, Eaton Vietnam. “The strong networks and expertise of our partners will be most valuable as we work hand-in-hand to help make digitalization work and support Vietnam’s growing power needs.”

The details of the new partnerships are as follows:

  • AIT CORP, Dat Vinh Tien have been appointed as official xEnergy licensees, and will be able to provide customers with access to Eaton’s team of experts, support and the latest technology required to build high-performance, design-verified, LV motor control and power distribution systems.
  • NPV Technology JSC will be offering Eaton’s modern low-voltage (LV) switchgear products to its end-users and network of distributions and dealerships. These include the electricity protection solution such as air circuit breakers (ACBs), molded case circuit breakers (MCCBs), miniature circuit breakers (MCBs), residual current circuit breakers (RCCBs/RCBOs), contactors, relays, indicator light, switches, etc.   
  • Saigon Electric, one of the leading distributors for mid-voltage power equipment in South Vietnam, will be offering Eaton’s power distribution and control assemblies to help customers enhance the safety, reliability and efficiency of their electrical systems.

“AIT CORP has been a distributor of Eaton’s LV products and MV switchgear for six years in Vietnam. Since last year, we have been working more closely with Eaton and have become a xEnergy partner,” said Mr. Ha Pham, Deputy Director of AIT CORP. “Eaton's licensing of our manufacturing of xEnergy systems not only demonstrates AIT CORP's design, manufacturing and testing capabilities, but also allow us to capture more of the growing Type Tested Assemblies (TTA) switchgear market.”

“Vietnam’s energy needs have been steadily increasing in-line with its economic growth, which has resulted in a growing demand for power management solutions that are both safe and sustainable. We’re excited to be working with Eaton to deliver the best technologies to our customers and seize new opportunities in the wake of COVID-19,” said Truong Minh Rang, General Director, Saigon Electric.

Le Duy Lam, CEO, Dat Vinh Tien, adds: “The versatility and performance of the xEnergy system has certainly been impressive across a range of applications in commercial and industrial facilities. Now as an authorised xEnergy Licensee, we can tap on an array of resources and work more closely with Eaton to bring customized, design-verified solutions to locations across Vietnam.”

Pham Huu Giac, General Manager, Nam Phuong Viet, notes: “Eaton is a globally renowned brand with a diverse range of products, suitable for all applications from high-rise buildings, to oil and gas, mining and pharmaceuticals. We’re committed to providing our customers with quality products, competitive prices, timely delivery and warranty. This partnership with Eaton will provide our customers with greater options and improve the efficacy of their projects in Vietnam.”

These announcements build on Eaton’s momentum in the Vietnam market, having announced a partnership with Elite JSC as the authorized distributor of Eaton’s DPQ and CPS solutions last month. With its expertise as a global multinational manufacturer and established presence in Asia Pacific since the 1970s, Eaton has carved a reputation for itself as a leader in power management solutions. This partnership will enhance its presence in the Vietnam market as a contributor to the country’s digital transformation and Industry 4.0 ambitions.
