  • Alcomet Office Expansion

    Due to Alcomet’s continued success since it was established in 1998, the company had reached the point where it required larger premises to allow for further expansion.

    Gary James – Managing Director has grown the business consistently since he originally set it up 17 years ago and decided to extend the existing premises rather than move to a new location.

    “Underutilised warehouse space in the existing building provided us with the opportunity to create much needed additional offices and facilities without having to deal with the business interruption that we would have faced had we moved.”

    The development included investment in new offices, meeting rooms, a kitchen and new IT and comms infrastructure. The increased space has already enabled Alcomet to more than double its workforce across all departments of the business but primarily in critical customer support and service areas. As a direct result of the expansion the company has been able to pursue its plan to add new strategic product lines. These have included:

    o P & B Weir Substation, Transmission and Distribution Earths.
    o Oil Circuit Breaker Contacts for a wide range of manufacturers.
    o GRP Products, such as Walkways and Flooring, Structural Profile and Handrail Systems.

    Gary said “The new facilities and resources will further strengthen Alcomet’s leading position as a specialist distributor to DNO’s, Civil Engineering and Construction companies within the electricity sector.”
