SA Equip have been in business since 1924, originally providing electrical supplies and support to the shipping industry. In the 1960s – when the great North Sea oil boom began – the EX industry was in its infancy, and few products had been specifically designed for use in hazardous environments. SA Equip responded to the new demand by developing safe, rugged, practical equipment for use on and offshore.
The business grew with oil and gas, as they developed solutions in light, heat, ventilation and power distribution, achieving several ‘world firsts’ along the way. Over the years the products have evolved from the oil and gas market into other potentially dangerous, cramped or inaccessible environments. SA Equip products are now used in shipping, aerospace, defence, utilities, pharmaceuticals, distilling, power stations and other heavy industry applications.
