Panel Build:

Panel build is a key element of our business and we have a core competence in the manufacture of bespoke, small to medium sized panels. We also offer a prototyping / one-off service alongside our batch assembly production service, with typical batch sizes ranging from 5 to 50.

We manufacture numerous panel types, including:

  • Control panels
  • Starter panels
