About Us

In 2002 Gordon Kitto Welding Limited invested in the purchase of the Intellectual Property Rights of EMFORM Ltd (an ex-Balfour Beatty Group company). Since this investment, we have continued to focus our efforts and expertise to establish GKW in the field of busbar engineering.

GKW has more than 50 years experience in a complex field of busbar engineering. Providing a complete service for the design, manufacture, supply, installation and commissioning of every type of busbar has given GKW the experience that is unrivalled in this specialised discipline.


The ability to combine civil, electrical and mechanical engineering skills in projects totally responsible for the success of the installation is key to our growing worldwide reputation for quality and professionalism.


Established designs are used to meet the specific requirement of each busbar product line. Type Tested designs have been created to ensure that all systems are both competitive and totally reliable. CAD technology is extensively employed in the design to ensure that systems and plant come together, without error.

Over the past 50 years busbar maintenance and busbar installation work has been our core business. We endeavour to establish a strong and lasting working relationship with our customers by providing excellent support; from emergency response to being involved in large turnkey projects. For existing busbar systems we offer the service of maintenance plans, modifications and retrofits or new builds which include busbar design, manufacturing and installation. These skills have been utilised in the following industries:

"The GKW installation team, supervised by our Site Manager executed the task of re-routing the existing busbar system to connect to the new rectifiers. The work involved cutting, re-locating and welding the heavy section busbars before finally terminating the system to the rectifiers"
