Schurter and Volex Partner to Take a New Step with New "License and Distribution Contract"
Schurter and Volex Partner to Take a New Step with New "License and Distribution Contract"

The Schurter Group and the British power cord and cable assembly solutions specialist Volex plc rely on a long-standing and successful partnership, which has been taken a new step with a new “License and Distribution Contract”.

“What began over a decade ago as a distribution contract has developed into a very successful partnership for both companies. The central element of this partnership is the V-Lock cord retention system developed by Volex, which perfectly matches our mission of safe&easy,” stated Donat Wullschleger, Head of Product Management at Schurter.

Schurter is continuously expanding the V-Lock product portfolio to guarantee compatibility with the power cords produced by Volex. Moreover, the markets are successfully served by Schurter's global distribution network, which is also shown by the significant increase in sales in this segment.

New License and Distribution Contract

Besides the distribution agreement, Volex provides Schurter the license to develop its own complementary products under the V-Lock label and to brand them accordingly. The best example of this is the development and launch of the world's first rewireable device connector with V-Lock: Schurter 4783.

Jim Logan, Business Development Director at Volex commented “The Volex V-Lock solution for cord retention has been very successful in products where reliability and performance are essential. Schurter has been a key part of that success with their extensive range of V-lock compatible inlets and outlets, and we are delighted to extend our partnership with them.”

About V-Lock

For the power supply on the device side in the 1-phase range, practically only plugs according to IEC 60320 are used worldwide, as this ensures maximum compatibility for device manufacturers. This standard is now enhanced by a cord retention system, which reliably prevents unintentional disconnection of the power supply. Important for instance in medical devices, in data centers and with uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). A simple touch of a finger is enough to disconnect the power cable in a safe, controlled, and easy manner.
