A school wanted to update their power distribution units in the classroom to incorporate RCD protection.
To minimise costs and disruption the school approached Olson to provide a PDU matching the same size and fixings as the existing PDU but incorporating RCD protection.
The school wanted to carry out the update during school holidays so Olson were able to deliver the products to meet the installation schedule.
All of the products were manufactured, stored in Olson’s large warehouse and then shipped to site as required.

A UK university required power outlets for their laboratory benches but the colour had to match the bench top.
As Olson powder coat all of their products in their in-house spraying facility, they were able to colour match the bench top from a sample, obtain the custom paint colour and then spray the power units for the customer.
