Lakeland Engineering Equipment Co. has been recognized by Schneider Electric for providing outstanding service as an authorized distributor for 75 years. Lakeland Engineering was founded in 1952, but the relationship between Schneider Electric and Lakeland originated several years before. In 1944, Lakeland founder Bill Fox placed the first Schneider Electric purchase order. From there, the two companies grew a strong partnership that still holds true to this day.
“Awarding the 75 year milestone to Lakeland, a key partner of ours, gave us the opportunity to reminisce on our past success, new opportunities and to trace back this 75 year partnership” said Schneider Electric Area Sales Manager, Bret Caywood. “We’re proud to work with distributors like Lakeland who go the extra mile to provide exceptional customer service and uphold Schneider Electric’s values.” Lakeland Engineering has grown to become a leading distributor of industrial process motor control components in the Midwest.
Over the past 75 years, the Lakeland team has helped Schneider Electric penetrate and grow in vertical markets and technologies. Lakeland’s sales team have continuously partnered with Schneider Electric to develop business and marketing strategies, and provided ongoing engagement, communication and support to customers across a variety of industries.
“We appreciate the continued commitment and dedication that has led to Lakeland being a key automation partner for Schneider Electric,” says Caywood. “With continued effort to expand our products and capabilities, the knowledge within Lakeland’s organization makes it exciting to be a part of the next chapter.”
