In the industrial sector, motors and generators represents a billion dollar business segment, experiencing steady growth that is pushing towards a multi-billion dollar industry by 2020. These to-market products must be tested and certified to the required standards, particularly to applicable energy efficiency regulations. Working with CSA Group allows you to benefit from our experience and technical insights gained from years of standards development. We will apply this knowledge to the testing & certification of your motors and generators for the North American and international markets. No matter where your manufacturing facilities are located, our international network of offices and laboratories gives you direct access to our technical representatives that will oversee your project from start to finish.
