Mother of nVention

Pentair Electrical is now nVent

Pentair Electrical has completed its spin-off into a singular company, and subsequently changed its name to nVent.

Following its separation from the parent company of Pentair, nVent will become a $2.1 billion global company that provides enclosures, electric heat tracing solutions, complete heat management systems and electrical and fastening solutions.

The company has over 9,000 employees and more than 80 manufacturing, service, sales and distribution centers worldwide, with locations in eight countries including India, Germany, and Brazil. Its legal headquarters are in the United Kingdom, with U.S. operational headquarters in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, just outside of the Twin Cities.

Below, nVent CEO Beth Wozniak describes the culture of innovation at the company. Quick tip (for upcoming trade shows, maybe?) it’s pronounced “invent”:

The move was initiated—along with nVent’s water spinoff—in order to emphasize customer connection and protection of their electrical systems in facilities with high cost of failure rendering electrical performance crucial. The company’s hope is that the focus will help enhance productivity and reduce cost of ownership by simplifying installation and minimizing downtime.

nVent’s principle brands will be Caddy, Erico, Hoffman, Raychem, Schroff and Tracer. Products with other brand names, such as nVent Eriflex, Lenton, Nuheat and Pyrotenax, will also continue to be promoted and sold..

The company emphasizes there will be no disruption in products sold or distributed.
