Carbone of America and NAWSA Form Distribution Agreement


Two giants in the wind industry have joined forces to provide reliable, time-tested service and parts to the wind market. North American Wind Service Alliance (NAWSA) is the only North American distribution channel for Carbone of North America wind generator replacement graphite brushes, slip ring assemblies, and hub assemblies.

Carbone of North America, a leader in innovative material solutions involving graphite and other performance materials, has designed and developed replacement brushes specifically for the wind generator market. The electrographitic grades of materials in these brushes provide the best characteristics to improve performance and wear, extending lifecycles, and lowering replacement costs. It is now possible, with one call or e-mail to a NAWSA member, to arrange for the purchase and/or installation of these Carbone Lorraine components anywhere in North America. The NAWSA network of alliance members can ensure a local response to your need for quality performance products designed specifically for your wind generator needs.
