40 Years of Electrical Power Quality
SDC Industries was established in 1978 by Stephen Coomes, the former owner and Managing Director of the company.
At that time, electricity providers were penalising organisations for having poor power factor, hence creating an extra burden on the utility company themselves.
Being a qualified and experienced electrical engineer, and already an expert on power factor correction, Stephen Coomes saw a gap in the market to supply and install this equipment within the UK and began to build the company, taking it from strength to strength.
Not only is SDC Industries an expert in the electrical sector within the UK – during the 1990s, the company began to export HV capacitor and harmonic filter banks and voltage optimisation products to countries throughout the world, including the UAE, Africa and the USA.
Stephen Coomes retired from the business in January 2016, and appointed company directors David Sullivan (formerly Technical Manager) and Peter Higgins (formerly Production/Installations Manager) continue to take the company forward.
Power Factor Correction originally formed the foundation of the company and, to this day, remains at the core of our business, however, from the 1980’s until today, the vision for the company to succeed remains the focus and SDC Industries has since diversified into producing and installing equipment such as electrical switchgear, switchboards, transformers, voltage optimisation and harmonic filtration.
The company now supplies innovative products and undertakes complex electrical power projects for clients in all commercial industrial sectors, including the NHS, Local Authorities, Manufacturing, Contractors/FM and Retail.
