Explains managing director Gary Miles: “As the panel fittings division of FDB Electrical Ltd – with a background in the specialist panel building industry – we naturally grew our business together with panel builders serving the controls industry – but this soon developed into a wider market place so that we are equally at home with the sourcing and supply of the more specialist products for a huge variety of industrial and defence related applications. A major part of that growth has involved ever closer relationships with manufacturers like DIRAK who ensure that we can provide our customers with the best and latest hardware technology.”
