  • Alcomet's Export Territory Reaches Australia!

    Alcomet are pleased to announce the continued expansion of our export territories, which now includes Australasia. Due to a recent switchgear emergency, we were able to resolve a big problem for an Australian operator!

    Oil Circuit Breakers have been in operation since the turn of the 20th Century. Due to the strength and reputation of British manufacturing at this time, global export of British made switchgear was prevalent, many of which are still in use around the world today!

Our distinct commitment to providing a efficient service and quality product, ensured that when a network operator in Australia suddenly found themselves in emergency need due to a catastrophic failure, our team were able to assist their engineers remotely from the UK.
