Company Overview

We offer various electromechanical components.  All of our products are designed to UL and CSA (cUL) standards by our engineering department that has over 100 years of combined experience in both design and product development.  To ensure timely deliveries of new products, our headquarters in Rhode Island utilizes its on-site lab where all qualification testing is witnessed by UL and cUL staff.

Tower is a member of several business organizations, such as NEMA, NFPA, AHAM, NEC and we are constantly in contact with CPSC and UL to be aware of proposals and changes that affect product safety.  We are a member of UL’s 1699 STP committee for LCDI/AFCI and participate in various organizational meetings sponsored by UL and NEMA.  By being an active participant, this enables Tower to be aware of any contemplated changes as well as new products to be manufactured in the future.
