— L i t e r a t u r e Available Gould Inc. Systems Protection Division has announced the opening of two new facilities to provide repair and overhaul services for circuit breakers.
The new facilities are located at Gould's headquarters plant in Philadelphia and in Virginia Beach, Va.
George Gordon, president of Gould Systems Protection Division, said the expanded facilities recognize a growing need for fast turnaround and expert workmanship in the repair and overhaul of circuit breakers.
He noted that Gould, which is the largest and only full line supplier of Mil spec circuit breakers and switchgear for the U.S. Navy, has previously provided overhaul services on a limited basis from its Philadelphia plant.
"Now, with dedicated facilities in two locations, we are able to serve this expanding market on a nationwide basis, assuring both speed and expertise from Gould specialists." Gould Inc. designs, develops and manufactures computer and electronic products and systems used in defense, industrial and scientific applications.
