Lowery Ltd was incorporated in August 1950, initially working for GPO, Pirelli Cables and from 1953, British Rail. Our largest customer during this period was Pirelli, for whom we installed underground super-tension cables on behalf of the Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB). There followed a period of steady expansion during the 1960s and then further growth in the 1970s through our relationship with Pirelli in Belfast, and extended activities with British Rail, CEGB and the GPO. The 1980s saw the start of the telecoms boom and Lowery was successful in securing large tranches of communications cabling infrastructure work for British Telecom and Cable & Wireless - the latter’s trunk network installed trackside on the railway network.
In 1992, Lowery identified a major opportunity with BT's rationalisation and were appointed one of their Main Civil Contractors, a relationship which continued for the rest of the decade. In 1998 Network Rail embarked on an High Voltage Power Supply Refurbishment Program and Lowery, working in association with Seeboard (now UK Power Networks), undertook the feeder cable replacement over the next five years. By 2000 our list of clients included National Grid, Global Crossing, Thales, NTL, Energis & Marconi, Seeboard and Network Rail.
In 2003, Lowery secured our Principal Contractor's Licence from Network Rail, and expanded our rail activities. In 2010 we proudly celebrated our 60th anniversary. This was a significant milestone for Lowery proving our long term and successful contribution to the industry.
Since 2010 Lowery have now developed into a full turnkey business offering our customers full railway project design and installations of High Voltage, DC Substations, DC Cabling, Signalling, Telecoms, Civil and Cabling works. We are pleased to share that our client base list has also increased so now in addition to the above we now undertake works for Network Rail, Crossrail, TFL, DLR, Bam Nuttall, Siemens, Osborne, Skanska, Amey Inabensa, Costain and Murphys.
