Baldwin and Francis

Baldwin and Francis have been powering hazardous environments for nearly a century. We are known throughout the world for the quality of our electrical equipment.

In 1919 Mr W Baldwin opened an electrical engineering company in Sheffield. A chance partnership with Wilfred Francis landed him a contract to produce electrical switchgear. The devices very quickly became the ‘switch gear of choice’ for the mining community where safety and reliability were of paramount importance.

Very soon Mr Baldwin and Mr Francis went into business together and the rest, as they say, is history.


Over the century Baldwin and Francis has branched out into new industries, however our insistence on producing electric equipment that will operate safely and reliably in the most demanding of environments has never wavered.


If your electrical systems have to operate safely and reliably in hazardous or challenging environments then Baldwin and Francis is the expert you should be speaking to.

Baldwin & Francis operate throughout the world as a quality supplier of specialised electrical systems and services.
