Eaton serves its global customers with systems designed to use energy more reliably, efficiently and safely in buildings and city infrastructure and next-generation aircraft, cars, trucks and machines. However, we know we are more than the products we invent and produce. The way we do business is a priority as well.

A Collective Responsibility

Our core values clarify a shared resolve to “doing business right,” which was Joseph Eaton’s vision when he founded the company more than 100 years ago. His spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship emphasized the highest ethics and a philosophy of “Excellence through People” that continues today.

The Eaton workforce represents people of different cultures, homelands and backgrounds who helped the company expand from its roots as a leader in vehicle technology.  Today, we are also a trusted power management resource for the electrical, hydraulics and aerospace industries. It is our people – their expertise, inventiveness, integrity and diversity – that shapes both our heritage and our future.
