Switchgear failures are thankfully very rare, but they do occur as there is an enormous globally installed base. Fortunately, our customer base instinctively knows where to turn in the event of a crisis - Switchgear Support Ltd has the ability to respond very rapidly to these rare events and assist our customers in the safe repair of their equipment.
