Newtownards Electric Company Boost

Newtownards-based Par Works Solutions has been assisted by Invest Northern Ireland to develop an innovative safety product to house temporary electricity installations on construction sites in Northern Ireland and international markets.

The company’s recently launched Parbox makes it easier for contractors to secure electric switchgear on sites, improving safety for workers and reducing risk of vandalism. The innovative Parbox is being trialled by McLaughlin and Harvey.

Support for the development of Parbox was announced by Olive Hill, Invest NI’s Director of Innovation and Technology Solution. Par Works was formed last year by husband and wife team Richard and Amanda Corbett. The new product has been designed and developed with advice and guidance from Northern Ireland Electricity.

Mrs Hill said: “Our support for what is a highly innovative safety product has included technical guidance on manufacturing techniques and ensuring the Parbox name is protected through an EU trade mark registration.
