Northern Switchgear & Controls. Providing Electrical Switchgear and Energy Management since 1993

Northern Switchgear & Controls Ltd specialise in the design and manufacture of HV/LV packaged sub stations, low voltage electrical switchboards, power distribution units, motor control panels, final power distribution and control equipment.

Northern Switchgear & Controls Ltd was founded in 1993 and set out to provide purpose made Low Voltage Switchgear and Control Gear Assemblies for the UK market. Typically these industries require more than a standard system that component manufacturers offer.

As our business has grown we have developed an enviable reputation for providing our quality systems and products to organisations and projects both within the UK and internationally with export orders forming a useful percentage of our business.

Most recently we have been involved in major projects around the world including work for McDermott Engineering, M W Kellogg, Dupont, Brown & Root and Conoco for Gas Fields, Crude Oil Plants, ESSO, Tyco Thermal Systems, Fluor Intercontinental and USAF. In the UK we supply the Construction, Pharmaceutical, Process, Leisure, Smelting, Marine, MOD, Utility, Electricity Supply, Offshore, Retail, Telecommunications and Commercial Industries.

With our dedicated team of experienced engineers we are able to offer total solutions to our client ‘a one stop engineering shop’ whether a standard or purpose made system at a realistic cost. Northern Switchgear & Controls Ltd deliver on time, respond quickly and efficiently to your requirements and believe in working together with all involved to provide value engineered solutions.
