Rittal and Phoenix Contact Achieve Success in Diverse Markets

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2012) - "The future belongs to those who have visions, and have the courage and dedication to turn them into a reality" is the message across Friedhelm Loh Group's online homepage. Indeed, the German-based company has implemented this message into its practices, operating eight global businesses since founding its original operations in 1961.

The German parent company has operated two independent subsidiaries in Australia since 1995: Phoenix Contact, a leading manufacturer in electric and industrial technology, and Rittal, a global supplier of enclosures and housing technologies, in addition to thousands of other products. With 100 employees in Australia and more than 60 worldwide subsidiaries, Rittal has a truly global presence. Globally, Phoenix Contact employs 11,000 people. With branches in every capital city throughout Australia, Rittal and Phoenix Contact combine complimentary world class products with local service.

While Rittal's original business worked primarily with enclosure systems and housing solutions, their continued growth has led them to include electronic packaging, low-voltage power distribution, IT infrastructure and climate control systems, as well as communications systems to fit the needs of just about any industry. Their core values are simply put: Rittal's products are as varied as its customers. At any given time, more than 10,000 Rittal products are available to customers worldwide.
