Cooper Bussmann has kicked off its two-year Productivity Through Protection (PTP) Tour with customer training events scheduled at U.S and Canadian distributor branches and industry trade shows through the end of 2010. The Productivity Through Protection Tour is an electrical technology and training program designed for electricians and engineers in construction, maintenance/repair and original equipment design. Cooper Bussmann has developed a 32-foot mobile display outfitted with Cooper Bussmann products. Guests are also able to engage in training via interactive displays, video demonstrations and one-on-one discussions with Cooper Bussmann representatives.
