Rosh Engineering wins new five-year contract with Northern Powergrid
Rosh Engineering has secured a five-year contract with Northern Powergrid.
The contract will see the electrical engineering company repair and refurbish Power Transformers.
Due to ongoing business growth, Rosh Engineering also joined the Scaleup North East programme in February.
Managing Director, Ian Dormer worked with scaleup partner Andrew Esson.
The company has now expanded in space and purchased a 1,100m2 factory on the banks of the River Tyne, Blaydon.
The £500k investment now enables Rosh Engineering to extend its repair, refurbishment, testing and installation services.
The new factory has an overhead lifting capacity of up to 20 tonnes and enough space to improve its offering to the electrical supply industry as well as large industrial plants that need power transformer work carried out under cover rather than out on site.
Ian said: “The whole team have ensured that we’ve won these new framework orders by delivering consistent, high quality, on time projects. With staff delivering exceptional service for many years to the electricity industry it’s now resulting in customers committing to long term contacts.”
Rosh Engineering has worked at power stations, electricity substations and other industrial complexes throughout the UK and Northern Europe for 40 years.
Andrew added: “Rosh Engineering are one of the first companies we worked with on the Scaleup North East programme. It is a pleasure to work with such an ambitious business, and to support them with their growth journey as they settle into their new premises.”
Led by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and delivered by RTC North, Scaleup North East aims to create and sustain more scaleup businesses in the North East economy.
