From the earliest days of electrification over 100 years ago, Thomas & Betts has been a leader in providing products for commercial and industrial construction, industrial plant maintenance, repair and operation, electrical utility distribution, communications and original equipment manufacturing. We offer one of the broadest product lines in the electrical industry, supplying over 70 percent of the items used in a typical electrical application. More than 6,000 electrical, industrial, specialty and retail distributors stock and sell Thomas & Betts products in their communities. We offer our distributor partners real-time electronic data interchange (EDI) so that orders can be sent, received and on the warehouse floor for shipping within minutes of being placed. T&B Access™ offers our distributors the most comprehensive and user-friendly web support tools available so they can more easily serve our end customers-electricians, contractors and consumers.
Thomas & Betts is one of North America's leading providers of highly engineered, tubular steel structures used for utility transmission and distribution. Our structures offer longer-lasting performance than traditional wood structures, the ability to support increased carrying capacity, lower long-term maintenance costs and the widest range of aesthetics. Sold under the Meyer™ brand name, Thomas & Betts is known for developing engineered solutions that overcome environmental challenges faced by utilities as they upgrade, expand and improve the reliability of power grids.
We have long-standing relationships with the leading utility companies in North America and offer high-quality, one-stop service for both tubular and lattice structures. With the exception of pre-engineered tubular poles, every steel structure is custom-engineered to meet a specific voltage and corridor requirement and shipped directly from our manufacturing facilities to the job site. In addition to our T&D product offerings, Thomas & Betts offers structural solutions for wind generation, high mast lighting, communications, and electrical substation applications.
Thomas & Betts is a global provider of commercial and industrial heating and ventilation products. Since 1888, our Reznor® brand of products have been found worldwide in warehouses, factories, office buildings, convention halls, schools, hotels, churches and many other locations where space heating or conditioning outside air for ventilation is required.

We provide proprietary software that simplifies the product selection process by analyzing the heating and cooling needs of a building based on size, use, environment and many other factors. Over one-third of our products are custom-engineered to support the climate control requirements of a specific building.
