Electrical Upgrade at J.Mitchinson Ltd, Evenwood

The Client

J.Mitchinson Ltd, Evenwood – Electrical Upgrade

The Brief

Our client, J Mitchinson Ltd., is involved in the manufacturing, production and assembly services for material handling equipment.

On a recent site audit a production unit containing  an aging electrical installation was noted as needing a full inspectiion and upgrade to meet the current Health and Safety legislation requirements.


The Activity:

This project involved an electrical upgrade; incorporating a full range of design, installation, testing and inspection services offered by Tomlinson Longstaff Ltd.

After visiting the client’s site, their installation was divided into several sections to allow efficient testing; from which we were able to provide an accurate quote for the remedial works required.

Remedial work included swapping out the old switch gear for modern distribution equipment.

The Result:

Helping our industrial clients maintain their production output; whilst still meeting their electrical health and safety requirements is one of the core activities of our business.

Despite the many challenges that we faced with this project, not only is J. Mitchinson Ltd’s electrical installation now compliant with current regulations but having had their old switch gear replaced with a modern distribution board. It is now safer, takes up less space and is more convenient to use as there are no more fuses to replace in the event of a fault.
