Rittal launches ROI calculator tool online

Canadian operations named ‘Best Workplace’


Rittal Corp., global manufacturer of industrial enclosures, accessories and machinery, has launched an online tool to help system integrators calculate and compare the labor savings of automated panel modification. 

For prospective buyers of the Rittal Perforex system, the calculator is a simple tool to show how quickly the machine will pay for itself in labor and time savings. The inputs for the Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator include:

* Number of holes and cutouts per job

* Number of enclosures modified per month

* Labor rate

“In general, manual modification that takes a few days, can be completed in hours on automated modification equipment like the Perforex,” says Mike Herzog, Rittal automation systems business manager for Rittal Corp. “The online ROI calculator easily visualizes how quickly the Perforex delivers a return on investment for their business.”

Perforex machining centers were developed by Rittal to fully automate the manual tasks involved in modifying enclosures and back panels.  Designed specifically for control panel manufacturers, Perforex machining centers can be easily programmed to drill holes, tap threads and cut required openings in the enclosure.

Rittal Can-ops scores high as ‘Best Workplace’

Rittal Systems Ltd. in Mississauga ON has being recognized as one of this year’s ‘Best Workplaces’ in Canada. This list appeared in a special national report fromThe Globe and Mail newspaper.

The 2017 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by Great Place to Work Institute Canada.  The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

“While Rittal Systems is proud of its market-leading products, global network and excellent track record, we acknowledge that our greatest asset is our people. We are dedicated to making the working experience at Rittal as motivating and rewarding as possible,” said Tim Rourke, President of Rittal Systems Ltd.
