Frommelt Safety to become Rite-Hite Machine Guarding
August 19, 2014 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Aug. 19, 2014 – Frommelt Safety Products, a division of Rite-Hite Doors, will change its name to Rite-Hite Machine Guarding, effective September 1, 2014.
The name change is part of an overall initiative to further strengthen and focus on the Rite-Hite brand. The announcement follows the streamlining of the product line that the machine guarding division undertook earlier this year. In similar fashion, Frommelt Products (a subsidiary of Rite-Hite) changed its name to Rite-Hite Environmental Enclosures earlier this year.
The name change will not affect the current product portfolio. As its name implies, Rite-Hite Machine Guarding will continue to focus production on its machine guarding products, including automated barrier doors, industrial fencing and retractable curtains for robotic and automated welding processes in metal manufacturing, automotive, material handling, paper/packaging and plastics, among other industries.
