Experts in bespoke control panels

Established in December 1984, we operate from a convenient location in Nelson, Lancashire, on the M65 motorway network. Initially specialising in refrigeration control systems, we rapidly developed our expertise into other market sectors. The company now has over 34 years experience in supplying a variety of sectors with a wide range of electrical control panels and fault rated motor control centres, either from our standard designs or to our customers’ bespoke specifications. In that time we have earned a first class name and reputation for our ability to deliver within strict deadlines, to a high specification whilst continuing to remain competitive.
