July 27th 2018

When selecting your next electrical distribution equipment supplier, you should look no further than Electrium.

That’s what Tony Charles, Head of Projects and Business Development at Electrium, tells us. Here Tony explains the benefits of working with Electrium and how that can make sourcing your electrical installation equipment work smoothly for you.

Tell us more about your role at Electrium.

My role is to manage project propositions and to promote the services from Electrium that can provide a full range of product solutions for new installations & refurbishment projects. I work with our Business Development & Project Managers, who operate throughout the UK, to highlight to new and existing customers, the wide range of standard & bespoke products that we can offer.

What services can Electrium offer customers for their next project?

The Electrium product basket ranges from a simple light switch through to a custom built switchboard, it includes of products and solutions for customers and projects of all sizes.

There’s a includes a full LV distribution equipment solution (Siemens S4) sub-distribution via MCCB Panel-boards, onto MCB distribution boards, consumer units and a vast array of  wiring accessories. 

Electrium is a Siemens company that includes several market leading brands, each with their own specialism & capability.

This choice of product offer allows our customers to make the most appropriate choice of product solution i.e. one that best fits the electrical & economical requirements for each individual project. Electrium brands utilise Siemens technology.

Which areas can Electrium offer their solutions in?

That’s what makes our service so ideal for existing & potential customers; it’s our ability to offer a managed solution (using catalogued product or custom made equipment) for a wide variety of projects in numerous different sectors.

Whether it is for commercial, industrial or residential, for care homes or student accommodation, schools or academies, retail developments or office space, we have a solution which we believe will benefit our customer’s requirements.

What makes this service from Electrium different to others?

For us it’s the single point of contact. From start to finish you will have someone from Electrium who will help manage our part of the project to completion, offering continuity across the project, rather than having to talk to different people along the way.

This provides a smooth delivery of goods and helps you to get the project completed on time, first time.

Our Project Team bring your special requirements into our R&D Design Team & liaise between all parties to ensure correct specification & satisfaction. Our Engineering Teams are based at our factory at Wythenshawe, near Manchester where a lot of our products are designed & built.

We welcome customers to our factory and encourage visits, whether you just want to take a look or if you need to sign off on the final designs. We’ll always make you feel welcome.

You’ve spoken about where Electrium can work. What projects have we worked on that might surprise people to hear?

One project which might raise some surprised eyebrows is our work with London Underground.

LUL as was (now TFL) have been a long standing customer for the Crabtree brand of Electrium. On a recent project we were asked to provide circuit protection and wiring accessories for ticket halls in the station and other parts of the project as part of a £700 million transformation.

The solution needed to be pleasing on the eye but flexible enough that it ensured that the station remained open whilst work was carried out.

We believe we achieved this with our solutions from Crabtree. Our metal plate wiring accessories are aesthetically pleasing to match the décor of the new surroundings but its exceptional durability meant it could stand 365 days a year continuous use where failures were not an option.

We’ve also worked with a five star intercontinental hotel in London, near the 02, providing specially designed USB charging modules, US compatible 110V power sockets and robust and durable floor boxed.

We delivered a variety of charging solutions to meet the needs of their guests and metal plate accessories that complemented the interior design of the hotel.

Finally Tony, why should customers choose to work with Electrium for their next project?

For me it’s that you won’t just be working with Electrium, you will be working with Siemens as well.

Electrium is part of the Siemens family, and with that comes the detailed quality controls and due diligence you would expect from a business which is in the same group as Siemens. You will get the same high level and smooth service you would expect from such a worldwide brand.

You know that by working with us you will be part of a global business that has helped to enhance projects throughout the world and continues to be the ideal solution for many customers.
