How it began

Having completed their professional apprenticeships at the end of the second world war, in the era of post war optimism, George Park & Ernie Gate setup Park Gate & Co. Ltd and began trading on the 23rd October 1946 in Fisher Street, Carlisle, Cumbria.

From a back room in Jack Burrow’s premises, the business soon began to expand and take on employees

Covid-19 Announcement

Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, we have taken the decision to temporarily scale down the business to protect workers and the public and to hopefully return the company to full operation when the crisis is over.

For the next few weeks, we will be operating with a reduced workforce. Our Company is a member of the AEMT (The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades). We are one of their members who provide breakdown repairs and the supply of replacement equipment to hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturers, food manufacturers, agriculture, papermaking, gas, oil and nuclear and other essential businesses.

We work around the clock playing a crucial part in ensuring that power is generated, water is provided, oil is pumped and refined, factories are productive, and nuclear waste is processed.

Any critical failure of a motor, generator, pump, etc. can bring any of these processes to a standstill, AEMT members including Park Gate ensure that all plants run smoothly and that any breakdown does not become a crisis.

Most of our usual phone numbers and email addresses will be operating, though there may be some disruption to our services, and you may have to check at the office before waiting for replies and responses.

Please be assured that whilst attempting to provide these services we are doing all that we can to ensure that our staff stay safe by employing strict hygiene and social separation methods. This involves a number of staff working from home where they can.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but at this time the safety of our staff, customers & suppliers is our biggest concern.

We ask all of our customers to take care and we hope to be back to normal as soon as possible.
