From load testing to coffee holding

Crestchic’s Service team have created a new loadbank unit designed to light up and hold coffee cups, but this one-of-a-kind piece is more about bygone nostalgia than keeping generators and power supplies on their toes!

Ian Casson, Crestchic’s Service Manager, said: ”I was randomly searching ebay and found a listing for one of our old loadbanks, made back in 1989. It had been used on a farm in Shropshire testing single phase generators.

“It was in a really poor condition, with beaten panels and covered in over 30 years of rust and muck.  However, testament to our precision engineering, it was still fully functional!

Northbridge Industrial Services (LON:NBI) has two core activities, Crestchic Loadbanks and Tasman Oil Tools. Crestchic is a specialist electrical equipment business which manufactures, sells and rents loadbanks and transformers from its base in Burton on Trent and has depots in France, Germany, Belgium, UAE and Singapore.
