What our customers are saying

  Light Rail Transit Authority

Federico J Canar

I would like to start your day with the information that the Type MM74 Whipp and Bourne High Speed Circuit Breakers which were repaired, rehabilitated and restored to their original capacity by R&B Switchgear Services Ltd. are operating outstandingly well.

We have been quite nervous of flash-over incidences again because of the recent and frequent occurrence of thunderstorms and lightning these past few months. But luckily, because of the modification of the no volt, there has been no flash-over incidents whatsoever and we are thankful that R&B did an excellent job of rehabilitating our MM74s.

We look forward to your next project with the Authority and please extend our appreciation to R&B's excellent job done for the Manila LRTA Line 2.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you to you and your team for carrying out the work in replacing the arc chute asbestos here at the Engineering Academy, Ratcliffe. Throughout, the job has been dealt with professionally and I'd appreciate it if you'd pass on my thanks to Dave and the guys from the asbestos company.

We're in the throes now of having a proper lifting gantry installed into the switch room, complete with electrical lifting hoist to complete the job.

Any time you're visiting Ratcliffe, please don't hesitate to call in on us and have a look at us or simply have a cup of tea.
