* The Westinghouse Distribution and Controls Business Unit was acquired by Eaton in 1994. The
acquisition included all of the Westinghouse electrical distribution and control product business and also included
stipulations that the Westinghouse name cannot be used by anyone else on these types of product for years. Today, Eaton's
electrical business manufactures leading electrical distribution and control products branded "Eaton" or "Cutler-Hammer" which
can replace Westinghouse products in commercial and industrial applications.
