Industrial Control and Automation Engineers, Electrical Panel Manufacturers and Installation Contractors, Swansea, South Wales UK

Electechs - Electrical engineering, control panel manufacturers and factory automation specialists


Electechs Ltd is an electrical engineering company specialising in Industrial Control & Automation systems. Manging Director Simon Smith established the company in October 2002 after realising a shortage in turnkey electrical solution providers in South Wales.
Simon's background with British Steel, Sony and Ford Motor Company together with five years working in industrial contracting gave him the knowledge and contacts to achieve a long held ambition to run his own company.

The first year's rapid growth in turnover was primarily achieved at just three factories with Sony Manufacturing, Bridgend contributing to most of it. The business quickly capitalised on the growing demand for their high level of expertise and skills and with a medium to long term business strategy, customers now include giants like Airbus UK, Alberto Culver, GKN Aerospace, GE Healthcare, Harman Becker, Honeywell Control Systems, Tata Steel and Volac.

The company believes their success is down to the quality and service provided as part of their commitment to client satisfaction and this has resulted in the accolade of being solutions partners to Siemens Automation & Drives.
