Eaton rang NYSE opening bell to celebrate 100 years on the exchange

Eaton has celebrated the 100th anniversary of its listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) by ringing the opening bell on March 7, 2023. This milestone reflects Eaton’s enduring ability to adapt to the changing world and to serve the needs of all its stakeholders – shareholders, customers, communities, and colleagues. Over the decades, the company diversified into an automotive and truck component supplier, then expanded as a diversified industrial manufacturing company through acquisitions like Cutler-Hammer, Westinghouse’s distribution and control business, and Aeroquip-Vickers. These acquisitions formed the foundation of its electrical business and enhanced the company’s presence in the aerospace market. Later, the company refocused on power management and energy efficiency through the acquisitions of Powerware, the Moeller Group and Cooper Industries and, more recently, Souriau-Sunbank and Tripp Lite.
