Bussmann | Cooper Industries

Bussmann-logo Bussmann, a division of Cooper Industries that has been acquired by Eaton, is one of the world's largest producers of circuit protection devices to protect electrical, electronic and automotive systems from circuit overload. The company provides the industry standard for circuit protection with over 41,000 fuse types, from large fuses for protecting the main supply in multi-story buildings and industrial complexes, to sophisticated fuses for printed circuit boards in electronic products.

It's been 100 years since the Bussmann brothers first started producing fuses from the basement of their home. And in that time span, Bussmann has grown from providing fuses for horseless carriages and World War II aircraft, to offering more than 30,000 products. From humble beginnings in St. Louis, Missouri, to a global product and distribution network, the Bussmann name is synonymous with technological innovation. In fact, over the past 100 years, Bussmann products have received more than 3,000 utility and design patents, with more than 350 global active patents.

Today, Bussmann products continue to reflect a long-standing tradition of providing fusible circuit protection and electrical safety solutions that help protect equipment and enable reliable, efficient power distribution. And now that Bussmann products are part of Eaton, the industry's top innovators of fuse technology and circuit breakers have united to provide ultimate leadership in circuit protection.

Cooper Bussmann is a wholly owned division of Cooper Industries, Inc (NYSE: CBE) and is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri. With a more than 90-year history of innovation, the company has set the standard for circuit protection in the global market. Bussmann is part of the electrical business of Eaton. Eaton acquired Cooper Industries plc in late 2012.
