Express Transformers & Controls

Our Runcorn Factory

Express Transformers & Controls Ltd, was formed in 1953 in a 3000 square foot factory in Croydon, Surrey.

Eleven years later in 1964, the company expanded and opened another factory at Picow Farm Road, Runcorn, Cheshire, this one had 6000 square feet of production area.

The Croydon factory was producing the larger transformers, up to 200 kVA and the Runcorn factory concentrated on the smaller range, generally up to 3kVA.

In 1981 the company expanded further and the decision was made to close the Croydon factory and enlarge the Cheshire factory to accommodate the southern production.


In 2020 the company is still going strong with many of its highly skilled and long serving staff producing the same quality products. Although the management team may have changed the company’s ethos of manufacturing the best possible products and achieving high customer satisfaction has been retained.

We will work tirelessly to supply trusted components and look forward to another sixty years.
