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.
