Our Story


Excel Switchgear Ltd, (formally Excel Systems & Controls (1992) Ltd), is a privately owned, New Zealand based company, specialising in the Design and Manufacture of Electrical and Mechanical Switchboards.

The company is owned and operated by Ross and Karen Wilson, supported by a team of experienced employees at a purpose built modern factory in Wingate, Lower Hutt.

Proven processes that deliver what the customer wants:

Over the last 20+ years, we have established processes which ensure that we deliver what the customer wants, to specification and on time. We invest time in the consultation and design so that the result meets the needs of the installation.

Small company = Personalised service:

Being a small business we have the advantage of giving our customers personalised service from consultation to quotation, detailed design to final manufacture. The owners of the business are the people you deal with.

A broad range of products - all sizes, customised to suit your installation:

We recognise that every installation is unique. We have a range of cabinet options, including our own modular metalwork, which gives us the flexibility to design the most suitable board to accommodate the specifications of the project.

We also run our own powder coating operation so if you want that switchboard painted bright orange we can do that on site, or we can match an existing installation.

Certified to manufacture Prisma Plus systems:

Our team is very experienced in the design and manufacture of a wide range of Prisma Plus solutions. Prisma Plus is a system developed by Schneider Electric and is often specified in projects where safety and continuity of service are paramount. It is an optimised and tested, IEC compliant solution, for low voltage electrical distribution and control switchboards.

Strong relationships with suppliers = quality product at competitive prices:

Need we say more! You get the advantage of our long standing relationships with suppliers and resulting purchasing power. We also know the best products for different situations... and we are continually updating ourselves with new technology.

Preferred supplier to many of our customers:

Our database is full of customers who do business with us regularly... and some choose to only deal with us for their switchboard needs. But don’t just take our word for it check out our testimonials:
