  • Staff night gets a big thumbs up!

    There were smiles all round as staff from Alcomet Limited celebrated the company’s half year success with a special get-together at the Perry Barr Greyhound Stadium, Birmingham.

    The ‘night at the dogs’ was put on by Alcomet’s Managing Director Gary James to say thanks to all members of staff who have helped the company reach its sales targets within the first six months of the financial year.

    Twenty colleagues were split into two teams, with each team placing bets on their chosen hounds.

    The company sponsored a race called The Alcomet Chase, where the teams were presented with a photograph with the winning Greyhound. After the races, each team cashed in their winnings to find out who had won Alcomet’s very own Doggie Trophy.

    In the end it was Sales Manager Chris Beasley’s team who walked away with their tails wagging and the victory prize.

    Managing Director Gary James spoke about the event:
    “The first six months of the financial year have been a fantastic period for Alcomet Limited, the company has exceeded all of its sales targets and is currently expanding into new business markets.

    "This is the second staff night in the last six months, and we have more than doubled the size of our workforce. Everyone enjoyed the dog’s night and it has been a great way to say thanks for their continued support and hard work.

    “Alcomet is continuing to expand by recruiting new staff throughout the rest of the year in areas such as sales, admin and marketing.”

  • Oil Circuit Breaker Contact Refurbishing

    Did you know Alcomet offer a 48 hour turn around for Switchgear Contact refurbishments?

    We were asked by a customer if we could help get their Metropolitan Vickers 11kv Switchgear back online. Upon inspection the Switchgear Contacts were not completely irreparable, we collected them from site and within 48 hours got this super critical part back to site.

    At Alcomet we pride ourselves on going that extra mile to help our customers.

  • Addition of the English Electric OKM4 33kV Oil Circuit Breaker Contacts

    We were approached by a customer to help get an English Electric 33kv Oil Circuit Breaker back up and running.  Upon inspection the contacts were damaged beyond repair from heavy fault current switching over the years. Due to the age of the oil circuit breaker, replacement parts from stores were unavailable. We took the OKM4 contacts and started our process of back engineering them to produce new high quality Oil Circuit Breaker Contacts.

    Within four weeks Alcomet had back engineered the fixed female and moving male OKM4 oil circuit breaker contacts and got these super critical components back to the customer.
