Driven by a need to bring innovative products and enthusiasm to the market, in February 2016 Controlling Power took the first steps to create a business who's focus was on far more than just a successful operation.

Carefully selected staff working as a close knit team are able to fulfil the elusive work life balance.

We achieve this by ensuring staff are included in decisions and provided with the flexibility that allows them to commit to the peaks and troughs of a manufacturing business.

With our heavy duty copper fabrication equipment and plentiful stock in our factory, we manufacture anything from small control panels and distribution boards to large main switchboards and generator boards.

Controlling Power is proud to be members of NESMA and the NSW business chamber.
