About us

Our Heritage

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.

With over 50 years of distinguished service experience, the company has justifiably gained a reputation of being the premier supplier of choice for distribution, power transformers, and other electrical distribution equipment by offering world-class products, quality, and service. We constantly strive to provide the highest level of customer service excellence, excellence is the key parameter that we continually measure all our activities and endeavours. We are supported by numerous and significant global electrical OEMs’s ensuring that our supply chain remains agile through a change management culture to deliver flexibility and solutions to satisfy our customer’s needs.

Over the last 50 years, the company has become the supplier of choice to significant and major electrical/water utilities and industrial end-users in the region from earning the reputation as a trustworthy supply partner delivering excellent product reliability and service performance from products and exceeding the market’s expectations.
Our sole objective is in delivering network resilience and reliability to serve our clients and maintain energy supplies to the wider communities.

Today, those initial steps taken 50 years ago by our founder have grown and flourished into a significant group of twelve manufacturing and trading companies located in the GCC, Europe, and Africa, all supported by eight modern ‘world standard’ manufacturing facilities.
