Phoenix Contact raises money and awareness for breast cancer research through ‘Rails of Hope’ and Lee National Denim Day campaigns

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Since inventing the modular terminal block in 1928, Phoenix Contact has produced many varieties of its signature product, but until this October, the company has never manufactured a pink terminal block. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Phoenix Contact introduced a special pink version of its most popular product, the UT4 terminal block, which helped to raise more than $1,430 for the Susan G. Komen organization (www.komen.org).

At the recent Solar Power International trade show, held October 17-20 in Las Vegas, Phoenix Contact asked visitors to its booth to pledge a donation to a breast cancer awareness charity. In return for the pledge, donors could put their name or the name of an honoree on a pink terminal block using one of Phoenix Contact’s marker labels. Each terminal block was then placed onto the “Rails of Hope” DIN rail display. Two-hundred eighty-six people pledged to donate, and Phoenix Contact donated $5 for every pledge received at the show.
