Food Manufacturing switchboard
CUBIC Partner, Energy Control and Automation (ECA) is an Australian company based in the large regional city of Bendigo.
ECA, founded by director Greg Kingston, is today an automation and controls Manufacturer, employing 20 staff with a focus on the strategic directions that were established at
the inception of the company.
One of these strategies was to build LV switchboards, as Greg had years of experience building switchboards and could see the opportunities both locally and interstate. The company has strong relationships with high quality suppliers hence it was easy to select CUBIC as the preferred supplier for type tested switchboards.
It only took one visit to John Olsen of CUBIC Australia to secure our trust in the Danish way of doing business and the quality of the product. We started by undertaking training from the factory in Denmark. We were looked after very well and learned a lot about the features and benefits of CUBIC and enjoyed putting them together.
Our first board was a 1600 A Main Switchboard for a Melbourne food manufacturer. We used the CSS form as our bible and as there were many changes made by the client, we updated the CSS so as our documentation was correct and up to date.
The client was very impressed when they came to witness the Factory Acceptance Testing and we were told that the board looked too good to go in the switch room. It is interesting to note that the board was a replacement board as the other one was stolen! The client asked us to keep the board until it could be bolted down on site as they didn’t want this one stolen.
Energy Control and Automation are heavily involved in the food and water Industrial electrical markets. Our services are LV switchboards, control boards, automation, integration, PLC programming, SCADA, Electrical Engineering, and HV maintenance.
We would like to thank the CUBIC people for your support and for a well tested and proven product.
