Aberdeen-Based Market Leader Thriving in Key Regions
A leading Aberdeen-based group of electrical companies has reported a significant increase in business across all key regions and is on track to achieve turnover of £12.5 million in the current financial year.
AEL, which is headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland has reported substantial growth in the US, Middle East and Mexico as well as in the UK where a refreshed team is driving forward with the company’s ambitious growth plans.

The changes are seen as crucial in growing AEL’s reach into England as well as consolidating inroads made into Scandinavian markets, particularly Norway. Further growth is anticipated after AEL’s agreement as an authorised distributor of Seacon products was extended within Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East.
Ongoing growth has also sparked an increase in headcount with a team of seven now serving clients across the Middle East from the branch office in Baku and 16 personnel based in Mexico at AEL Electrical Mexico S. de R.L de C.V.
Last year, family owned AEL announced that turnover had exceeded £10 million for the first time as the company continues its drive to offer first-class electrical and subsea products and services to the onshore, offshore, renewable, petrochemical, marine, subsea and other sectors.
AEL CEO Graeme Mackie said: “Ensuring diversified growth across multiple markets has been central to our growth in recent times, and having a refreshed team in place at our global headquarters will be pivotal in fulfilling our future ambitions.”
AEL Americas President Alan Mackie added: “The US, UK, Middle East and Mexico remain equally important in our global vision, and ensuring we have good people in all of these locations remains the keystone in all that we achieve.”
Founded in 1981, AEL is an international brand providing electrical products and services to the onshore, offshore, renewable, petrochemical, marine and industrial sectors. While proud to remain a family business, AEL has the global capability to offer a broad range of electrical products and services. AEL operates from a network of strategically placed international offices as well as its HQ Aberdeen.
