TCE Controls

Entec’s I&E manufacturing division, branded as TCE Controls, was founded in September 2016.

As a highly-regarded provider of Instrumentation and Electrical project and service solutions, Entec took this opportunity to establish an in-house manufacturing capability in order to offer its customers a wider scope of supply. TCE Controls is based in Entec’s New Plymouth facility, in the heart of New Zealand’s energy industry.

The philosophy at TCE Controls matches that of its parent Entec; to deliver the best products and solutions; to employ the best people in the business: to ensure satisfaction of our customers, and earn their repeat business.
