Cooper Bussmann, St. Louis, Mo., is taking its Productivity Through Protection message on the road across North America throughout 2009 and 2010.

The Productivity Through Protection (PTP) Tour is an electrical technology and training program designed for electricians and engineers in construction, maintenance/repair and original equipment design. The PTP Experience is a 32-foot display trailer outfitted with Cooper Bussmann products. It allows guests to engage in training via interactive displays, video and one-on-one discussion with a Cooper Bussmann representative.

The PTP Tour launches its two-year program in June, 2009, with scheduled stops at Cooper Bussmann distributor locations and industry trade shows throughout the United States and Canada.

“The focus of this tour is education, and providing product and service solutions,” explained Paul Taylor, vice president marketing, Cooper Bussmann. “On-board, guests will discover new technology and information on arc-flash reduction, current limitation, interrupting rating, short-circuit current rating and selective coordination. It is our intention to inform, educate and provide a meaningful experience to our visitors so they can more safely design, install and maintain electrical distribution systems.”
