The collaboration, confirmed July 30 and effective immediately, will focus on expanding the region's market. Mining, utilities, oil/gas and more will be the top sector focuses.
"Schneider Electric and REV have worked together for years, and as the market evolves towards safer, more reliable and flexible solutions, it seemed natural for us to join forces to better serve the local industry," said Christian Cossette, marketing and engineering director, Canada, Schneider Electric, adding that the company is "thrilled" to be closer to the area's end customers.
"This partnership will allow our customers to benefit from Schneider Electric's world-class arc resistance equipment integrated into custom solutions, designed and manufactured in Alberta."
REV principal Shawn Oldenburger said the company is excited to work together on its medium-voltage line of arc resistance equipment. He also pointed out that REV will now have full lifecycle support for these products in the western Canadian region.
"This was an easy agreement," Oldenburger said. "Both companies share a similar set of corporate values that are rooted in supplying and supporting the highest-quality reliable products that are manufactured and delivered on time and safely."
