SmartPlug expands manufacturing facilities


SmartPlug Systems has expanded its manufacturing footprint by more than 400 percent. The company said in a statement that increased consumer demand and preparation for a new product line prompted the increase in space. Its address remains the same.

SmartPlug's new facility has been certified by Intertek ETL for the manufacturing of its patented products. It retains its Canadian CSA, Europe CE and US ETL certifications.

"This expansion provides the flexibility we need as SmartPlug moves into its exciting future," said Tony Barber, SmartPlug Systems CEO in the statement. "We're setting the stage to accommodate the product launches we have in play, with the same level of quality.”

The company manufactures alternatives to traditional twist-type AC shore power connections. The line includes 30A and 50A plugs, inlets, cordsets and adapters with reduced electrical resistance and overheating.
