Client Services

An expanding area of our business activity is the provision of special control/instrumentation equipment to client specification. We are well positioned to do this by virtue of our many years of experience in the general control and instrumentation field coupled to the electronic design expertise of the Development, Design and Manufacturing Department of the Raytel Group. A particular area of specification is the Railway Industry where we have business links going back many years. The considerable experience gained from this and other areas of work enable us to offer the following services:

  • The development of a “niche” product for which the clients sees a personal need/wider market potential.
  • The development of a product or control arrangements to modernise an existing control process.
  • The development of a product which the client needs but finds difficult or expensive to procure.
