Your nVent CADDY Man

In the 1970s, a bright mind felt that the CADDY brand needed a mascot to reflect the evolving business. After a few napkin sketches during a plane ride, the CADDY Man was developed into a logo and became an instant favorite, highlighted in advertising and catalogs.With the launch of the nVent CADDY Stuff program in the late 1970’s, customers were able to order everything from mugs to t-shirts with the CADDY Man logo on it. Our bright yellow boxes with the CADDY Man on the side have become a recognized sight on the shelves of distributors and job sites worldwide.

While the CADDY Man has had a few transformations over the years, he still wears his trademark yellow shirt, has his hands in his pockets, and works smarter and safer - waiting on the rest of the job site to catch up to his job well done. He’s an installer, just like the people who use the same, time-saving nVent CADDY products!
