Company History

Frederick Smith Electrical Ltd was founded in 1976 by the original owner and companies namesake Mr Frederick Smith, and has been trading successfully for nearly 40 years. Following the retirement of Frederick Smith in 1996, Mr Keith Smith took over the business until August 2008 at which time the company was acquired by ControlRite Ltd a Burton based control, automation and systems engineering company.

Following the purchase of the company a new Managing Director was appointed bringing extensive experience in:

  • Electrical control systems
  • Process control systems
  • Special purpose machinery
  • Project management
  • Electrical and mechanical contracting industries.

ControlRite, a young and dynamic company, quickly recognised the core skills and competence’s of Frederick Smith Electrical and the obvious benefits to their customers from a “one stop shop”¬†approach to control and automation system design, installation and commissioning.
