At Northridge Electric, we design and manufacture prefabricated LPG terminal control systems for the propane industry in Ontario and a large part of North America. Our team of professionals which consists of programmers, system developers and designers are fully qualified and capable to provide your company with elaborate, sophisticated or simple, systems which will bring increased safety, efficiency, and most importantly, profitability to your organization.
Our prefabricated propane control systems are best in class. This pre-built concept enables our customers to maintain the unlimited advantages of our superior systems regardless of what area of Ontario or North America they wish to build a facility in to increase their market share and operational capabilities. On the other hand, if you have an electrician you have a great working relationship with but they don’t have the capabilities to provide you with a propane control system for your new terminal – we have the best solution for you.
At Northridge, we take lead times and project timelines seriously, to the point where we continually maintain a very large inventory of hazardous locations parts which generally have extensive lead times. This enables us to obtain competitive prices, deliver quick, responsive service to our customers when replacement parts are required, and conduct short notice projects and installations.
Our systems are entirely custom designed and engineered on a platform which is fully capable of including each and every propane application we may be presented with regardless of how simple or complex the system needs to be. When a pre-built option is chosen by our customer, Northridge takes great care to determine and distinguish exactly how they want their operation to run. It is of utmost importance to us that our customers have full assurance that we will provide their installers of choice with full support, advice and commissioning services from the commencement to the completion of their project and that the end result will be nothing short of perfection.

The installation was performed in a professional, punctual manor and we are pleased to say we have had no production shutdowns due to dust collector/unloading system blockages since!
