About Us

The History of Switchgear Technology

Since 1993 Switchgear Technology has been providing an independent switchgear engineering and design service to consultants, switchgear manufacturers, and electrical contractors.

The Principals of the company are all former Directors or Managers of Kartret Switchgear Ltd.

It is our policy to recommend servicing of switchgear every 3 to 4 years. We are now pleased to extend this specialist service directly to electrical contractors, for all manufacturers of switchgear.

Using our custom build background, sourcing materials and designing interfaces with existing equipment is one of our specialities.

We cover a complete range of services relating to switchgear and associated equipment.

All team leaders have at least 40 years background in switchgear maintenance, manufacturing, servicing and modification.

Since our establishment, we have been providing reports on the condition of equipment, together with surveying sites to provide single line diagrams of the installation. A greater demand for our services has been to provide switchgear aftercare, maintenance, modification and extensions to equipment. A major proportion of this work has been in liaison with original equipment manufacturers as an alternative to their own resources.
