News: Fusion is a safe bet to help in Pennine's growth


Rotherham electrical safety and training specialists, Pennine (Elec-Tech) Ltd, has moved into new premises at RiDO's Fusion @ Magna business centre in line with the company's expansion and ambitions.

The electrical solutions and training provider offers expert electrical safety guidance, support and training and has moved the short distance from Bradmarsh Business Park at Templeborough.

An award-winning environmentally-friendly building, Fusion provides a combination of high-quality offices and workshops designed for new and growing enterprises.

A spokesperson for Pennine (Elec-Tech) Ltd said that it was a difficult decision to re-locate but added that: "Fortunately within two minutes drive of our existing premises we found the prefect base. Fusion @ Magna provides us with modern offices, state of the art training rooms and importantly for us a training workshop. The training workshop is a vital step forward for the business as it allows us space to both develop and deliver the practical training our customers are regularly asking from us."

The management team at Pennine (Elec-Tech) Ltd has a background forged at the prominent Rotherham electrical safety and engineering company, the Lowe Group. It includes Ted Lowe, who established the Lowe Group of Companies in 1994 and helped it to grow over a period of 14 years to employ 230 people with a turnover of approximately £20m.

In 2008, Connaught acquired the Lowe Group (Holdings) Ltd, based in Rotherham and trading as Necta Ltd, for around £7.5m. It was later renamed Connaught Compliance Electrical Services. In 2010, the British Gas Business division acquired the assets of Connaught Compliance, for £11.2m, including the Templeborough training centre.

Following the 2008 sale, Ted decided to continue trading as the Lowe Group of Companies in association with the Yorkshire Association of Business Angels. In 2011, following meetings with some of his previous senior staff, he agreed to invest in and assume chairmanship of Pennine (Elec-Tech) Ltd.

The Pennine management team includes previous Lowe Group staff, Robert Armitage as managing director, Andrew Linley as technical director and Sue Myers as company secretary.
