Parsons Peebles was acquired by the TDC Group in June 2020 and, despite challenging operating conditions due to the pandemic, it has recorded a strong year. It is now looking to double revenues over the next two years.
TDC Parsons Peebles is a world-renowned manufacturer and repairer of medium and high voltage electric motors and generators for mission critical industries. It operates from a dedicated facility in the Port of Rosyth in Fife. Having seen a major six figure capital investment, the facility incorporates one of the most comprehensive and advanced test facilities in Europe, with direct full load testing and capacity at 50 and 60Hz up to 8.0MW for motors and up to 65MVA for generators.
The retention and development of a highly-skilled workforce and recruitment of apprentices are core to the business, with the TDC Group, directly employing a team of 200.
Sean Taylor, General Manager, TDC Parsons Peebles, said:
“We were extremely fortunate to have been acquired by the TDC Group. As a dynamic and fast-growing group, they could see the potential in us, with our long history of quality and innovation coupled with our unique facility including the most advanced test centre in the UK, if not Europe.”
Neil Milne, Managing Director, TDC Group, added:
“Acquiring Parsons Peebles was strategic. Being able to add high voltage manufacturing and repair capabilities to our broad engineering portfolio, enhances our already extensive offering. Not only does this complement our current service and product range, but clients are also benefiting from the much wider spectrum of electrical and mechanical services delivered from the combined Aberdeen and Rosyth facilities.”
