Set up by Alan Lester and now headed up by son Jeremy, specialist distributor Switchtec is celebrating its 40th anniversary. The company was initially a distributor of relays, but its range has expanded rapidly over the years and it now operates as a UK franchisee for world-wide manufacturers of quality components embracing electromechanical, electrical and electronics components.
A measure of Switchtec’s growth was the much-needed expansion of its Stone based distribution centre. Indeed, the company has exhibited growth year on year and now boasts an annual turnover in excess of £3.5m.
CEO Jeremy Lester comments: “Moving with the times and embracing new technology is the norm at Switchtec. We source components globally and can choose products that technically and commercially satisfy the needs of our customers. The coming year is no different and we have many new products coming through including solutions from leading global innovator in industrial internet technology Kyland. Industrial Ethernet was not even heard of when my father Alan started the company.”
