The 1st June 2022 marks 30 years in business for A&T Enclosures. This is a momentous occasion for all of the team but especially for the Chairman Tim King who after starting the business back in 1992, has had the pleasure of watching the company grow into an industry leading business.
A&T Enclosures specialise in the manufacturing and supply of high quality, bespoke, electrical enclosures globally for the low voltage switchgear, motor control, electric vehicles, renewables and power generation markets.
Starting with just eight members of staff back in 1992, Tim set out to create a market leading electrical enclosures business that specialised in high quality, bespoke builds. Fast forward to today and A&T Enclosures now employs almost 70 local people and supplies bespoke electrical enclosures to some of the world’s leading brands!
A crucial turning point for the business was securing a large investment in 2015, which allowed the company to move to its current location, a 50,000 sq. ft manufacturing facility based in Brierley Hill.This would allow a higher volume of work and more complex projects to be undertaken. A&T have invested heavily over the years both in cutting-edge technologies and in its people, the company is now renowned within the industry for its quality craftmanship and the unrivalled level of service and support it offers.
The company has certainly come a long way in the last 30 years and reaching this significant milestone in its history has allowed the company not only to look back at what has been achieved but also to look ahead to the future.
Having recently seeing an increase in the number of ‘green’ projects it is undertaking which include a windfarm project for a large energy management company and EV charging point projects for both vehicle manufacturers and a well-known supermarket chain. The company expects to undertake similar projects more often in the future as the UK moves towards its net zero target.
A&T Enclosures also continues to work with local schools and colleges to champion young adults who are interested in pursuing a STEM career. They have a fantastic relationship with a number of educational establishments and currently have 6 apprentices working across a number of different areas of the business.
As part of the 30-year celebrations A&T had the pleasure of hosting both the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street CBE and The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Sue Greenaway together with her Consort, Mr. Desmond Greenaway. During their visits they each had the opportunity to speak the Senior Management team about the future of A&T and heard about projects that the company is currently involved in that actively contribute towards the regions ambition of becoming the ‘home of the green industrial revolution’. They also discussed the companies thriving apprenticeship scheme and how A&T are boosting employment in the local area. Meeting some of the companies long standing employees they heard how much their roles have changed over the years and how technology has contributed towards this change. They also spoke with apprentices who work at A&T and discussed how their apprenticeship is contributing towards their success in the workplace.
