Kaddas Enterprises Inc. Launches BirdguarD

Press Release

October 19, 2012

Kaddas Enterprises, a small, 100 percent Woman Owned Thermoform Plastic Manufacturer located in Salt Lake City, launched a new product to add to its extensive line of animal caused outage protection products.

Kaddas has finalized installation training and on-site field modifications for the Cooper NOVA recloser. The progressive design and locking cover system utilizes patented BirdguarD electrical outage protection technology and proprietary materials for NSTAR Electric & Gas, who has been providing electricity and natural gas to the residents and businesses in Eastern, Central and Southeastern Massachusetts for more than 100 years.

In a collaborative effort with the Kaddas BirdguarD team, Jake Kennedy, Andy McMahon of Shamrock Power Sales and NSTAR’S John Ventura and Bill Eklund installed the first covers in the South Boston area last month. Ventura conceived the design as a way to reduce squirrel caused outages by insulating all grounded points of contact. “Kaddas was receptive and creative in producing a product to meet our specific needs. Overall, I think the covers look fantastic! Thanks to the folks at Kaddas for working with us on this project,” stated Ventura.

Kaddas BirdguarD products are utilized by most US based electrical utility companies and around the world. Internationally, the products are performing strong in four different continents.

This is an important an important addition to the Kaddas Snapfit BirdguarD line of products. Kaddas offers more than 170 types of covers. According to the U.S. Department of Energy animal caused outages account for 18 percent of all power outages, and their economic impact is estimated annually in the billions of dollars.

Kaddas is a proud partner with many national groups and utility industry companies, sharing a common goal of realizing uninterrupted service, associated savings and reliability for energy consumers, while creating a sustainable environment for wildlife.
