As of December 1st, 2007, Protection, Substation Automation and associated service activities, currently conducted out of AREVAs Bethlehem, Pennsylvania facility in the U.S., are transferred to its La Prairie site.
All AREVAs Measurement Products (usually conducted under the BiTRONICS brand) will continue to be designed, manufactured, delivered and served from AREVAs factory in Bethlehem and are not affected by the transfer.
AREVAs 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 North America.
Damien Tholomier, Commercial Director of AREVAs 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 AREVAs dedication to its North American customers.
