Doble Engineering Co. has acquired the Finepoint Circuit Breaker Test and Maintenance Training Conference, the electric power industry’s leading conference focused on medium- and high-voltage circuit breakers, as well as related substation and switchgear topics. Doble has significant circuit breaker expertise and solutions; its experts actively contribute to Finepoint’s event, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2013.

“After 41 years of serving the electric power industry, it is time for me to retire,” said Bill Myers, Finepoint’s founder and president. “We believe Doble Engineering Co. is the best choice to host the conference in the future. They are committed to honoring the objective of this conference by providing useful, unbiased, non-commercial and positive information that can be immediately applied to substation and switchgear maintenance work.”

“It is a privilege to add this renowned conference to Doble’s educational offerings,” said David B. Zabetakis, president, Doble Engineering Co. “Bill and his team established an excellent event with a similar mission as Doble’s conferences – to educate our colleagues, to share critical information and to improve our industry as a whole. We are honored to continue this conference’s knowledge-sharing tradition.”

Doble considers the sharing of knowledge as one of its highest priorities and is committed to the continuing education of today’s utility workforce and in supporting the next generation of electric power industry workers. Part of this commitment is shown through the many in-depth, apparatus specific technical seminars Doble hosts each year.

The 20th Circuit Breaker Test and Maintenance Training Conference will take place on Oct. 7 – 11, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia.
