Park Electrical Services – power, control, automation

23 Mar , 2018  

Established in 1973 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, today Park Electrical Services is a leading supplier of specialist electrical power, control and automation products.

A commitment to both quality electrical supplies and industry-leading customer service has enabled Park Electrical Services to remain the UK’s fastest growing Power, Control and Automation technical distributor.

109 staff support our customers from a network of established branches in Belfast, Dublin, Glasgow and Wrexham.  In addition to this, we have just recently expanded opening a new branch in Aberdeen.

The opening of the Aberdeen branch was born out of a gap in the market for a technical distributor who carried stock – no lengthy waiting times for key products.  The support of market-leading manufacturers and the recruitment  of true “Park people” to serve our customers is a proven recipe for success.

Value Added Reseller with Siemens
One of the advantages of dealing with the Park Electrical Services group is the seamless integration of quality solutions across the complete spectrum of automation, drives, power, switchgear, control gear, instrumentation and analytical equipment. As a Value Added Reseller for Siemens, Park Electrical Services receive training, support and certification in key technologies. This in turn allows us to combine leading-edge technology from the world’s largest engineering company with our legendary devotion to helping our customers. Siemens work closely with a select global network of partners – proven technology leaders and industry experts – to ensure that all of your automation, drive technology and power distribution requirements are met, everywhere and at any time.

Specalised Products
We specialise in industrial control, automation and switchgear products and systems.  Any products found within a modern control system can be found at your local Park Electrical Services branch.  All of our staff are fully trained to support the full range of products that we sell.

Today, Park Electrical Services is recognised as a major supplier of specialist electrical equipment, with all leading brands in stock available for purchase at our Trade Counters on site. Call our Sales Team, or purchase our products on our website at www.parkelect.co.uk.

We are proud to have been the first technical distributor in the UK and Ireland to be awarded BS5750 in 1987 and have retained a third party-verified Quality Management accreditation ever since, now operating to ISO9001:2015.  This is in addition to our ISO18001 and ISO14001 accreditation for Environmental Management and Health & Safety.

A commitment to both quality electrical equipment and industry-leading customer service has enabled Park Electrical Services to expand across the UK and Ireland to service the needs of a much broader audience.
