to a new way to grow your business

Running an electric motor represents more than 95% of its lifetime costs – and consumes around two thirds of an organisation’s electrical power. So a more energy-efficient option offers the potential for very significant savings in operational costs.

Seen in this light, the new EU ErP directive 2009/125/EC creates a real opportunity. Whether you’re a machine buyer or builder, distributor or reseller, Eaton offers the simplest, most ready-to-use and cost-effective way to comply with the ErP directive whilst reducing your energy costs – dramatically.

That’s because Eaton is all about productive change – moving businesses beyond mere compliance to delivering increased uptime with lower costs.

And since our new technology can pay for itself in around three years on average, Eaton customers can use these savings to fuel their growth.
