OE Electrics, originally founded in 1986, as Office Electrics, operates its business on a policy of “Service – Quality – Safety”. This enables the company to achieve a highly respected reputation in the commercial office soft wiring and cable management industry, providing cost effective and innovative ‘Solutions by Design’.
Operating as a family owned and managed business, an underlying principle that ‘people matter’ is maintained, because “…it is the people we work with: our customers; suppliers; and, of course, our staff – that make everything possible!”
Our sales and technical teams boast some of the most experienced and respected individuals in the industry, keen to listen to client’s needs and propose the most cost effective and user-friendly solutions. Their success is measured, not only by the continued repeat business, resulting from their excellent working relationship with clients, but by the 3rd party referrals from clients confident enough to promote us themselves.
In 2006, expansion plans and the globalization of the business took shape, with an office in Dubai serving the Middle East and the acquisition of Elsafe (Australia) Pty Ltd. Together with partnerships in France, Benelux and China, the OE Group has established itself as a global solutions provider – gaining Exporter of the Year Award, Going Global 2009.
With its headquarters in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, the company supports “Made in Britain” with in-house CAD design, plastic moulding, CNC machining, painting, assembly, 100% end-of-line testing and even web design. Managing the whole manufacturing process in-house allows complete control of quality and service which, in turn, has the effect of building confidence with the client. No better is this confidence exhibited than when clients ask us to help design and manufacture specific OEM products.
During the GFC, a policy of continued investment into new technologies, products and equipment, led to an explosion of revolutionary products, most notably with the unique USB TUF Charger in early 2013. Supporting “Made In Britain”, Office Electrics commissioned a fully automatic socket assembly line (SAL), wholly designed and manufactured in the UK, which can now manufacture over half a million sockets per year.
In 2014, following a number of years during which the OE Group had been expanding into markets such as hospitality, education and transport, the company changed its name to OE Electrics, reflecting the fact that it was no longer simply a solutions provider to the commercial office industry, whilst still maintaining a connection to its roots.
OE Electrics solutions can now be found in offices, call centres, cafes, hotels, hospitals, airport lounges, sports centres, shopping centres, service-counters, home offices, AV studios and many more – all over the world.
