Company background

Ritherdon & Co specialises in manufacturing enclosures and control panel metalwork, particularly for the electricity distribution industry, but also numbers many other nationally recognised names among its customers.

It is now the largest supplier of steel domestic meter boxes and meter box refurbishment units to the UK’s regional electricity companies as well as supplying control and regulator boxes to many other electrical and electronic outlets.
