East Midlands Instrument Co Ltd

Established more than 40 years ago, East Midlands Instrument Co Ltd has built a solid reputation based on efficient customer service – and this same quality was a key factor in choosing a law firm.

Founded in 1966 and based in Morton, Gainsborough, the company has used Burton & Dyson since a management buyout in 1996, although EMI had made use of the law firm’s services prior to this date.

As a firm of electrical and mechanical engineers, EMI provides on-site electrical and instrumentation services, including installation, testing and commissioning, as well as building electrical panels and various other parts.

Its customer base lies primarily in the sectors of power generation and distribution and rail, with an enviable list of ‘Blue Chip’ customers on its books, including Siemens, E.On, EDF, Mitsubishi, Bombardier and Drax Power.

Managing director Keven Bingham, whose role is to formulate and manage the implementation of company strategy, said he chose Burton & Dyson because of its prompt, efficient service.

He said: “We always receive good advice, detailing all the options available to us.

“During the past 14 years, we have mainly used Philip Westcott and have received excellent service.”

Burton & Dyson has helped EMI with its risk reduction and Keven plans to continue using the firm, possibly engaging its expertise in the area of human resources.

“We will continue to use Burton & Dyson in the future,” he said.
