Our heritage

Eaton has been serving the power management needs of our customers for more than a century. Over the years, we have expanded our expertise and portfolio of products and services by uniting some of the world’s most respected names with Eaton’s strong heritage of innovation. 

A legacy of innovation

It all began in 1911 with Joseph Eaton. In a time when transportation was on the verge of dramatic change, he invested in a new idea -- the very first gear-driven truck axle. More than 100 years later, though our business has transformed and grown significantly, we remain committed to his spirit of innovation. 

 

Over the years, we have also expanded our expertise and portfolio of products, services and systems by integrating the competencies of some of the world’s most respected names into Eaton to build the brand you can trust to meet your toughest power management challenges.

Our goal is simple: To provide unique solutions across a wide range of markets that keep businesses on the leading edge of change. That’s the power of One Eaton.
