DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - BUSINESS PROFILE -

FEL SWITCH­BOARDS – Hawke’s Bay based and fam­ily owned - is a rare breed in New Zealand’s elec­tri­cal in­dus­try, in­cor­po­rat­ing the ex­per­tise of a highly qual­i­fied board build­ing team with the specialist ser­vices of a rec­og­nized in­dus­trial au­to­ma­tion Sys­tem In­te­gra­tor. This syn­ergy of In­dus­trial ca­pa­bil­i­ties, backed by a strong cus­tomer fo­cus, has al­lowed FEL SWITCH­BOARDS to pro­vide in­tel­li­gent power and con­trol so­lu­tions for clients, both in New Zealand and Aus­tralia.

With a long track record of suc­cess­ful turn-key projects and a pedigree stretch­ing back to 1975, FEL SWITCH­BOARDS grew from the con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion of its par­ent com­pany FAL­CON ELEC­TRI­CAL LTD and was in many ways, a re­turn to the ori­gins of the busi­ness, as a Switch­board builder.

Over the years, FAL­CON has evolved into a multi-dis­ci­plined elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing firm, yet its roots have never been for­got­ten and FEL SWITCH­BOARDS has con­tin­ued to grow as a ded­i­cated Switch­board specialist, fo­cus­ing on what it does best –de­sign­ing and fab­ri­cat­ing elec­tri­cal Switch­boards for In­dus­try.

FEL SWITCH­BOARDS has de­signed and sup­plied switch­boards of var­i­ous sizes around New Zealand and Aus­tralia, serv­ing large End Users, OEM/ En­gi­neer­ing houses, Commercial sec­tor en­ti­ties and Gov­ern­men­tal agencies. Civil and Elec­tri­cal Con­trac­tors have be­come a key part of the FEL SWITCH­BOARDS busi­ness, col­leagues of In­dus­try look­ing for a ded­i­cated pro­ject­based Switch­board part­ner, ca­pa­ble of un­der­stand­ing the na­ture of the work re­quired and en­gi­neer­ing so­lu­tions ac­cord­ing to those needs.

Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer­ing is a big part of our busi­ness. It is in­evitable that the size of the project or job will dic­tate the amount of en­gi­neer­ing work in­volved, but the process of de­sign­ing to the Elec­tri­cal Stan­dards is an un­avoid­able re­quire­ment. Form rat­ings, heat rise cal­cu­la­tions and the in­ter­ac­tion of switchgear, bus-bar and met­al­work are all fac­tors to con­sider - hav­ing your project or job prop­erly en­gi­neered is key crit­i­cal to its suc­cess and can make the dif­fer­ence be­tween a prof­itable en­ter­prise and a le­gal nightmare.
