Controls & Automation

Park Gate has been manufacturing control panels and control systems for nearly 70 years. In 2014 we opened a new control panel building facility at Kingstown Broadway in Carlisle with spacious modern offices and a large workshop complete with top quality lifting equipment. Park Gate offers a comprehensive range of services from component assembly to full process plant.

Our experienced project engineers and fully qualified electrical staff work closely with clients from concept stage through design, manufacture and commissioning to ensure an end product which is safe, reliable and fully compliant with relevant regulations and directives. As an SME company we are able to meet and exceed customer expectations yet remain fully conscious of the need to provide a cost effective service.

Covid-19 Announcement

Following the outbreak of Coronavirus earlier in the year Park Gate has been operating with reduced staffing levels and although we have continued to provide essential electrical services to industry, there has inevitably been some minor disruptions to our services.

We are pleased to say that the situation has slowly improved and over a period of a few months staff have been gradually returning to work. As of July, 98% of staff are back at work, although a few are still working part-time, and some are still working from home. Overall, however, we are almost fully operational again and there should now be little difference from the services we offered prior to Coronavirus.

At our offices we are restricting visitors and carrying out a number of Covid-19 measures which are probably becoming familiar to everyone. Similarly, our staff working on sites are doing all that they can to prevent any spread of the virus.

All at Park Gate would like to thank our customers, suppliers and colleagues for their understanding and support over the course of the past few months, and hope that the journey to normality continues as we go forward into the future.
