Franklin Electric To Sell Directly To Wholesalers

New policy, covering all products, begins next year.

BLUFFTON, Ind. (AP) - Franklin Electric Co., a maker of water and fuel pumping systems, said Wednesday it plans to sell all its products on a direct basis only to wholesale distributors.

The new sales policy, which Franklin said it communicated to the Water Systems Industry in North America last week, is effective Jan. 1, 2007.

The change covers all products, including 2HP and smaller submersible electric motors and related products, Franklin said.
