The Pudenz brand of automotive circuit protection products includes blade fuses, bolt-down fuses, fuse-holders and aftermarket fuse products. Littelfuse acquired the Pudenz brand as part of its acquisition of Heinrich Industrie of Witten, Germany, in 2004.
Pudenz products include high-current multi-element MasterFuse® products, BF Inline® high-current inline cable protection fuses, battery disconnect systems, blade fuses, bolt-down fuses, fuse-holders and aftermarket fuse products for vehicles and automotive equipment.
The acquisition added highly regarded engineering and product development capabilities to Littelfuse. It also significantly expanded our presence in Europe, particularly with German OEMs, and increased the breadth and depth of our automotive portfolio.
