Who We Are
Olson Electronics are a manufacturer of standard, specialised and bespoke power distribution units, interconnecting cables and other power distribution accessories. Founded in 1961, Olson design and manufacture all of their products at their dedicated head office and manufacturing facility located in Greater London, UK. Our product range is one of the most comprehensive on the market and if we don't have a solution for a customer, we can custom build one to suit their specific requirements, with a quick design, manufacture and delivery time, without compromising quality.
Olson Electronics Limited was founded and has remained a family run enterprise ever since.
Originally producing components for radios, Olson quickly moved towards manufacturing instrument cases for the communications industry.
Olson's first PDU was designed for their own use at an exhibition. This innovation received orders due to its high build quality and saw the launch of standard UK 13 Amp power distribution units.
Production expanded and new premises were found in Shoreditch, East London.
Following market growth, Olson's main focus became manufacturing power distribution units, which prompted another move to larger premises in Tottenham, North London.
The communications industry was evolving and the 19" rack range for data cabinets was developed.
With the success and popularity of their 13A ranges, Olson launched a new international range to meet demand outside of the UK. Exports of both standard and rack mounting options soon increased Olson's turnover.
1998 saw the move to the new head office in Stanmore where we are still based. This gave improved manufacturing facilities, (incorporating R&D) as well as sales and marketing alongside manufacturing. This allowed Olson to grow our bespoke service and shorten response times for design and manufacture.
The launch of data centre range, incorporating cable management to 19" rack mounting PDUs for the very first time. This quickly grew in popularity within the industry and the range has continued to expand.
A patent was applied for 'sequential start' which was then approved in 2006. This allows multi-power installations to have fast and secure start up sequences, avoiding potentially damaging surges.
Today Olson offer over 30 different standard catalogue product ranges catering for all types of applications. Despite our vast range of products, options and specifications are never ending and so the bespoke market growing is integral to our business and our relationship with our customers.
