CSA Approval

Did you notice that our portable generators are being updated with CSA (Canadian Standard Association) approval? We are very excited to add this safety certification so our friendly neighbors to the north can have dependable power for all of their needs.

What is the purpose of CSA?

csa

CSA is a similar body as UL (Underwriter’s Laboratories) is in the US.

CSA standards regulate safety of applicable electrical products. In all ten provinces and two territories of Canada, laws require that electrical machinery and appliances connected to power sources conform to CSA safety standards regardless of type or quantity. In this respect, meeting CSA standards is mandatory for applicable electrical products.

COVID-19 Update

In Minnesota, we are still under a shelter in place order, #StayHomeMN. This order includes critical manufacturing as an exception in which power generation falls into this category. WINCO has continued operating our manufacturing and shipping operations during this period.

We are taking this executive order very seriously and have done what we can to maintain the safety of our employees. 

  • Account managers and support staff have been working off-site. They are still reachable at the same phone numbers and email addresses. 
  • Our factory is still up and running. We are making sure we keep to the social distance standards and maintain our safety protocols.  

We hope that during this difficult time you are healthy and safe.
