LA PRAIRIE, Dec. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - In order to optimize the service level
for its Protection and Substation Automation customers in North America,
AREVA's Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Division has created a center of
excellence at its existing site in La Prairie, Quebec. As of December 1st,
2007, Protection, Substation Automation and associated service activities,
currently conducted out of AREVA's Bethlehem, Pennsylvania facility in the
U.S., are transferred to its La Prairie site.
All AREVA's Measurement Products (usually conducted under the BiTRONICS
brand) will continue to be designed, manufactured, delivered and served from
AREVA's factory in Bethlehem and are not affected by the transfer.
AREVA's North American Protection and Control Center of Excellence will
act as the repair, maintenance and technical support center for the full
installed base of Protection products and Substation Automation systems in
Damien Tholomier, Commercial Director of AREVA's North American
Automation products said, "We are constantly striving to provide quality,
reliable and high-performance products and systems, along with outstanding
service based on fast response critical to operations. The creation of this
center of excellence in our existing site in La Prairie, Montreal is just
another example of AREVA's dedication to its North American customers."
