Canadian Electrical Wholesaler

August 1, 2016

Intermatic is a North American family-owned energy control company celebrating its 125th year in business. Founded in 1891, the firm has achieved success owing to their unrelenting dedication to forward-thinking, high-calibre employees and reliable products.

Intermatic serves commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential properties customers with a range of products span the electrical, HVACR and pool and spa markets. Offerings include time switches and controls, timers, power protection, surge protection devices, hour meters, sensors, weatherproof receptacle covers, professional lighting, consumer timers, and pool and spa controls.

Since its founding, Intermatic has continually adapted to the needs of the changing industrial landscape, shifting from manufacturing portable streetcar fare registers in 1891 to coin meters in 1930, and then munitions as after the onset of World War II.

A major milestone in Intermatic’s success was the introduction of the T101 mechanical time switch in 1956. In 1958, Intermatic diversified its product line further with the addition of pool and spa controls, and from there continued to grow, reaching up to US$100 million in sales in 1990.

In 2007, Intermatic acquired Grässlin Controls Corp from General Electric Co. The firm’s most recent pivot was in response to the fragile environmental climate, with the introduction of a new line of energy saving controls in 2011.

Intermatic has the capacity to design concepts from scratch or produce additional components to complete projects in collaboration with their OEMs. 
With headquarters in North America, Intermatic maintains a global presence through Grässlin Control Corp. Grässlin provides extensive control technology for both HVACR and OEM markets in the European Union, United Kingdom, Asia, and the Middle East, it them a significant OEM and distribution partner. 

Intermatic is committed to staying up to date on all the latest innovations in the energy control solutions and applications, including 3-D printing for prototypes — a fast and efficient solution for its customers.

20/20 Vision

David Gordon

For the past couple of years the industrial segment has been “challenged.” Much of this was driven by the decline in the oil and gas market, which had a significant ripple effect. Concurrently, a strong U.S. dollar hurt exports for many OEMs and the agriculture market was soft, further hurting that segment’s equipment market.

Overall, the industrial decline significantly impacted distributors and manufacturers. And a key product category, industrial automation and control, was the most impacted. But according to manufacturers and distributors in many parts of North America, the industrial market appears to be turning. Growth, compared to last year, is coming back. Some is due to increased investment in energy projects.
