R&B Switchgear Group eyes era of new growth with the launch of its Singapore Office


Specialist power distribution company R&B Switchgear Group has set its sights on new growth opportunities across the Asia-Pacific region as it launches its first Singapore office.

Centrally located in Marine Parade, the new hub will service the company’s growing client base which already includes Metro Trains Melbourne, Philippines Light Rail Transit Authority, SMRT Trains Singapore and Castle Peak Power Station in Hong Kong.

Providing bespoke design, manufacture and life cycle maintenance for low & medium voltage switchgear, the company services a range of industry sectors, including marine & shipping, oil & gas, rail and construction.

With workshops in the UK and USA, it’s expected that the new hub will enable the team to provide more agile solutions, as well as embark on larger and more technical projects with clients in Singapore and the wider region.

Speaking of the new office, Group Managing Director, Mark Beswick said: “We’re delighted to announce the APAC expansion of the company as we enter a new era of growth and ambitions for the business.

“Over the past year we’ve delivered projects for a number of new and existing customers, supporting them with turnkey solutions designed to optimise the performance of their electrical equipment. With a rapidly growing network of clients, we felt it was the perfect time to set up our first office in Singapore. As well as manufacturing bespoke power systems, R&B Switchgear Group is perfectly placed to support owners of Whipp & Bourne switchgear, with many of the company’s engineers involved in both the original design and commissioning of these products.

Mark continued: “Many of our global clients operating with heritage Whipp and Bourne equipment come to us for help with extending the life cycle of their systems and this is something we expect many Singapore-based companies will be interested in.”
