Patel Trading Company is the grandfather organisation of a significant group of companies in the electrical product and equipment sector with global manufacturing and trading facilities across GCC, Europe and Africa. PTC was initially founded in 1969 and later began representing IEO Transformatoren BV, a renowned Dutch transformer manufacturer. The representation arrangement grew and developed into a strong and successful relationship which eventually evolved into the Emirates Transformer & Switchgear company being created manufacturing IEO liquid distribution transformers under licence in Dubai. Ultimately, this led to the full acquisition of IEO Transformatoren BV in 1984 by the Patel family.
