The Legacy of McGeoch

William McGeoch established his company of brass founders in Glasgow in 1832. As the century unfolded, McGeoch moved into the manufacture of fittings for the then new and exciting market for electric lighting. By the early 1900’s the company had a substantial, purpose built, head office in Glasgow incorporating a warehouse and three floors of showrooms. They also established showrooms in London and Newcastle and a manufacturing plant in Birmingham. The range already encompassed a wide choice of domestic and marine electrical fittings from ‘artistic’ statuettes (left) holding lamps to watertight navigation lights (right). Later catalogues contained further additions to the McGeoch range including marine switchboards on slate panels with open switches and the main manufacturing plant in Birmingham featured more prominently with custom built design offices incorporated. In 1999 William White Switchgear was acquired by McGeoch Technology bringing with it current experience of designing and manufacturing power distribution and control and instrumentation panels for warships. Today, McGeoch Technology's entire operation is centred in Birmingham where a modern design and manufacturing capability has been established for power distribution panels, instrumentation panels and internal and external light fittings for both harsh environments and more budget conscious projects. Nowadays, for any marine or explosion proof electrical application, McGeoch has the answer. Our list of products and services include... Cable change boxes, Commander led lighting units, emergency supply connections, Endurance led lighting units, led lighting in general, lighting for commercial shipping, lighting for submarines, lighting for surface ships, marine connectors, marine control panels, marine distribution panels, marine isolating switches, marine junction boxes, marine legacy equipment, marine lighting, marine load centres, marine loop in boxes, marine refits, marine suppressor boxes, marine switchboards, marine switchgear, mcgeoch legacy equipment, refits, ruggedised lighting, specialised connectors and standard connectors ... the list is endless.
