A leading Aberdeen-based electrical and subsea supplier has continued its 40th anniversary celebrations with the creation of a new division.
AEL’s new arm will focus on providing energy audits in the north of Scotland, opening up the possibility for clients to save up to one fifth on their energy costs.
And it’s expected to result in organic growth, both in headcount and turnover, in the medium and long term.
As an ABB low voltage value provide, AEL is now able to offer a scalable process for industrial and hazardous settings that can provide flexibility whilst optimising process and control measures.
It is anticipated that the new division will not only augment options for existing customers but also open up new relationships from Dundee to Shetland.
As demand takes hold, additional staff will likely be needed to complete audits and carry out recommendations, and AEL has already launched a recruitment drive in preparation.
Mark Goonan, AEL operations director, said: “This additional service is a natural extension to our portfolio and expertise in all things low voltage, and we are excited to explore the possibilities this will open up for us and our customers.
“With soaring energy costs uppermost in the minds of many, we anticipate strong demand for this new branch of our business and we look forward to working with customers old and new to find efficiencies in their energy bills.”
Founded in 1981, AEL is a family-owned international brand providing first-class electrical and subsea products and services to the onshore, offshore, renewable, petrochemical, marine and industrial sectors.
From its global headquarters in Aberdeen’s Bridge of Don, as well as regional hubs in Houston, Baku and Mexico, the company offers a broad range of electrical products and services.
