Golconda is a leading supplier of PC/PLC/SCADA systems for control applications in process industries. But we are also much more than this.
Established in 1975, Golconda’s beginnings were in specialised silo level monitoring and we still represent level control manufacturers like Babbit International, Monitor and Nohken.
But the formation in 1985 of an Electrical Process Control department changed the emphasis of the business and today, Golconda’s activity is largely centred on process control with a host of loyal blue chip customers who rely on Golconda’s engineers for their control system needs. We are systems integrators for, among others, Rockwell Automation Systems and supply the whole range of Allen Bradley PLC and SCADA systems.
In 1990 to accommodate the growing business, Golconda moved to larger, purpose built offices in the north of Nottingham, close to junction 26 of the M1 motorway.
Golconda Process Weighing was added in 1991 to provide mechanical engineering expertise in materials handling, continuous and batch weighing, Loss-in-Weight and so on. The distribution of Moduflex loading bellows from Cimbria in Denmark was started in 1994 and continues right up to the present. We also now offer Volumetric-metering feeders from Hethon.
The official Concetti agency for the UK was awarded to Golconda in 2004. Concetti are a leading European manufacturer of bag filling and palletising equipment and one of the few companies that supplies complete lines from one source. Golconda also recently became distributors for the Technowrapp range of pallet stretch wrapping machines.
Golconda is a member of SHAPA (Solids Handling and Processing Association) and the PPMA (Process and Packaging Machinery Association).
