It’s the season of giving and thankfulness. This year, we thought we’d share a story with you about a group of linemen who took vacation time to volunteer to do the most good in a tiny village desperately in need of electricity and the economic boost it provides.
In 1943, after a death involving a member of his crew, Marvin Bevins worked for three weeks, day and night, to invent the Analog Phasing Tester. There, Bevins Co. began its history of creating the best linemen safety tools available. Read more to discover the full history.
Team Bevins has been traveling the country with Team Hubbell, demonstrating linemen safety tools and technology and raising awareness about the risks linemen take and the best new ways to prevent accidents. We recently hit events like SWEDE and the APPA Lineman Rodeo. Find out where we’ll be next!
