2018 has been an extremely productive and busy year which ended with visits to Bangladesh and India. The past year has involved collaborations with a large number of electricity providers, attending expos and travelling to various locations around the world. We have had a successful NQA Accreditation audit which continues to give our customers reassurance of the high standard of our work. Staff restructuring and the appointment of a new Sales & Business Development Director is bringing exciting new opportunities to our expanding business.
Disconnector Training Event In India And Bangladesh
Our Sales & Business Development Director Stephen Smith travelled to Bangladesh to attend a Disconnector training event for our customers. The event was held at our disconnector Factory in Pondicherry and Main Office in Chithamur (Chennai). This is where our sister company S&S Power is located. Stephen did two presentations while he was there relating to Disconnectors within Substation Design and information about Acrastyle UK.
S&S Power acquired Acrastyle UK in 1997. Thus enabling them to adopt Acrastyle’s very good brand image and capabilities of integrating protection systems and switching solutions in the UK and globally. A state of the art factory was set up in Pondicherry to manufacture high-quality disconnectors in 1997. Acrastyle UK and Acrastyle India have been responsible for prestigious installations such as the Paris and London Tube systems and working with utility providers in the UK and throughout the world.
Making Contacts In Chennai And Dhaka Bangladesh
Stephen also took the opportunity to make contacts with L&T Mumbai, KEC and Kalpataru which are Indian EPC’s in Chennai who deliver projects in Africa. The purpose of the visit was to discuss the possibility of offering Acrastyle UK products to these contractors.
He also travelled to Dhaka again in Bangladesh to have meetings with Power Grid Bangladesh, and Energypac which are large EPC’s. We also visited PSDC and CCC which are smaller EPCs to discuss Acrastyle products.
