About Us

The company was established in 2006 and after a year working alone on design and specification projects, I took on my first member of staff and rented a small industrial unit. The company soon outgrew our first premises and we moved to our current location with three times as much office and panel building space.

We have continued to grow our workforce and now have a wealth of hand picked, highly skilled engineers and electricians. We have already seen one apprentice through to qualified electrician status and intend to take on one or two more this year.

When asked, "I describe us as a controls company as our wide engineering background means we are not limited to any one particular field". We will always get to understand the whole picture for any project we undertake. In this way we can ensure that the correct control systems are put in place to achieve the desired outcomes. Good design is in the detail.

Graham Port.
Managing Director.
