Our Story


Powelectrics was founded as a distributor of sensors into factory automation and process control, named after its founder, Henry Powell.


Oakes & Co installed their first internet-connected telemetry solution on a weather station on Mount Snowdon.


Oakes & Co merged with Powelectrics, bringing us Dave Oakes as Technical and Sales Director. Dave understood the huge potential for remote monitoring of sensors to optimise processes.


With ‘connected sensors’ applications evolving rapidly, the synergy between Powelectrics’ sensor and telemetry expertise saw the first sales of our own Metron GSM/GPRS telemetry hardware.


The international success of Metron hardware inspired the development and release of our Metronview data collection platform.


With 100,000 remote monitoring devices deployed globally, Powelectrics benefitted from major investment by Quinn Venture Investments, with Peter Quinn and John Higham joining our Board.


Powelectrics became PowTechnology to better represent our capabilities as an organisation, whilst maintaining the ‘POW’ element of our name, as a link to over 30 years of company heritage.
