Power distribution products plus guidance and recommendations

National Switchgear, an IPS Company, manages distribution for our power distribution products. National maintains a massive, blended inventory of new, surplus, and reconditioned equipment.

This inventory means short lead times and competitive pricing. National’s power distribution experts make the key difference — understanding your needs and situation and configuring the right equipment solution.

For pricing and recommendations, talk to your local IPS representative or contact us here.

Industry-specific experience and troubleshooting

IPS offers repair or replace options because we build relationships on lowering the total cost of ownership. We match your equipment requirements with a custom configuration.

Our recommendations build on our institutional product knowledge. We know the equipment, how it may have been modified over the years, and why nameplate data is only part of the picture.

Our industry-specific experience makes troubleshooting more efficient. These insights and recommendations come with competitive lead times and pricing.
