Deal brings 50,000 electrical products to MSC customers.

MRO distributor MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc. (NYSE: MSM), Melville, NY, and energy management and automation provider Schneider Electric, Rueil-Malmaison, France, have signed a distribution agreement that provides MSC customers in the U.S. access to more than 50,000 electrical products marketed under the Square D, Schneider Electric and Telemecanique brand names.

Square D is Schneider Electric's flagship brand in North America, and this agreement represents one of the largest Square D product offerings available to industrial customers.
