A friend of the Pepco Family, Olivia Schneider, was tragically killed in a house fire last month.

Help complete her dream of giving back to children in need by donating new, unwrapped toys that will bring smiles to less fortunate children on Christmas morning.

We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys at our Eastlake Branch, 33210 Lakeland Blvd., Eastlake, Ohio 44095.

Please drop off donations by Thursday, December 13th. They will be taken to a local campaign center in memory of Olivia.

Thank you for your kindness and supporting Olivia’s Dream.

About Hubbell
Hubbell Incorporated began its journey in the late 1800’s when its founder, Harvey Hubbell, developed tooling and equipment to serve the growing demand for new assembly and manufacturing machinery during the industrial revolution. The commercial availability of electric power and advent of the light bulb created additional opportunities for Hubbell. With early patents for the “pull chain lamp socket” and “separable plug and receptacle,” Hubbell stepped into an era of creativity, inventing new ways to serve its growing customer base of businesses, manufacturers, utilities and homeowners.

Hubbell’s Foundation for Success

  • Serving Our Customers means listening to our customers, understanding what they expect and helping them be successful. We do this by developing long-term relationships and building confidence in Hubbell’s ability to create and support opportunities to achieve their goals.

  • Operating with Discipline is a core attribute of our lean operating philosophy. Taking waste out of the process, replacing it with value-add functionality, and helping our customers connect with Hubbell in a mutually beneficial way.

Einheit using Pepco’s VMI program for Universal Windows Project

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 9, 2018 12:07:10 PM / by Christy Angie posted in Einheit, VMI Program

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Einheit is one of the many companies who has taken advantage of one of Pepco’s managed services offerings; the VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) program. The VMI Program saves time and money by making sure jobsites are stocked with the materials needed to complete day to day tasks. The idea behind this new method of jobsite management is simple… we provide an on-site 40’ storage unit, complete with bin-located racking, overhead lighting and open space for bulk storage.

For the Einheit job, Pepco is supplying a Conex Box stocked with material specifically needed for the job. Other Pepco VMI services include Conduit Carts, Wire Reels, Lighting Racks and Knack Job Boxes to help ensure jobsites are stocked to keep up with construction deadlines. Pepco also has a self-unloading flatbed truck for easily moving material.

Pepco’s customer service is top notch and fast responding to any difficulties a customer may face. Our VMI team is compiled of veteran Dan McCurdy and AJ Strnad from the Construction Sales Department, who personally make visits to VMI program jobsites weekly to ensure everything is running smoothly and to make sure the customer has a full understanding of how it works. They are always on call and readily available to go to these jobsites when their assistance is needed.

Pepco’s Managed Services Programs are set to make the job easier for both lead foreman of Einheit, Universal Windows, Andy Hausler, and everyone else on the field. By using Pepco VMI services and our Site Managers to keep the process fluid through rapid reorder and replenishment, the expectation is for this job to be completed by January 2019.
