With branches in Bury and Leeds, we are easily accessible off the M60 and M62. Open 5 days a week from 07.30 until 17.00 Monday to Friday, our trade counters can prepare your component needs for collection and our team is on hand for you to discuss your switchgear needs.

Fast Delivery

We can deliver overnight to anywhere in mainland Britain if component parts are ordered before 3.30pm the previous day. Our carriers will deliver direct to site or to your place of business if you prefer. Ask us today to set up a trade account for even speedier despatch order fulfilment.

Quality Guarantee

We want you to be happy with your purchases and therefore offer a no quibble satisfaction guarantee, provided parts are returned as new. In the extremely unlikely event of a faulty part, we will replace or refund it without delay. All our distribution panels are guaranteed for 12 months from date of commission and we offer a highly responsive technical back-up and support service in line with your needs.


With access to hundreds of thousands of current and retro components, we virtually guarantee to have the part you need, whether maintaining and assembling a new panel, or refurbishing and replacing a much older one. We carry the country’s largest back catalogue of retro parts alongside the very latest from the world’s top brands that you know and trust.
