Pentair - Anyone understand how their Technical Products group does 20% margins?


Recommended Posts

This one baffles me.  I would think enclosures would be more commoditized and have much lower margins.

The margins suggest this is a differentiated product that is critical to customers.

Any help appreciated especially from someone who is familiar with their product.
