S&E Group switches gears with funding to address rapid growth and expansion

Switch Gear

S&E Group

Established in 1985 by Michael Smith, S&E Group comprises of Michael Smith Switchgear Ltd (MSSL),  AVW Fabrications Ltd and Power Quality Systems Ltd, and specialises in the manufacture, supply and installation of switchgear and control panels for commercial premises. The Leicester-based group has grown into a national business servicing over 300 clients.

Santander has supported S&E Group’s growth over a period of seven years. In 2017, funding was provided to facilitate the purchase of the current premises, consolidating their existing operations into one new larger site.

Santander has developed a deep understanding of our business. The new support has enabled us to extend our office space, which has already greatly improved the quality of working life for our staff, and the service we can provide to our customers – both of which are integral to our business.

Finance, HR and H&S Director, Michael Smith Switchgear Ltd

The new funding enabled an extension to the premises supporting this rapidly growing business. Santander also provides access to other services and support, with the overall package tailored to their changing needs.

We have been working with S&E Group for a number of years and are delighted
to provide further support to help the business develop and grow. We look forward to continuing to work together in the years to come.

Relationship Director, Santander
