Parkinson Case Studies


We have worked with Parkinson Harness Technology for over 25 years. Right from the start, they impressed us with their efficient, professional manner – an approach that not only inspired confidence but generated the results we were looking for.

JCB is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of earthmoving, agricultural and materials handling equipment. Each machine is a product of hard work and attention to detail which is what we get with Parkinson Harness Technology.

They are responsible for producing small harnesses, factored items, battery and link leads and they offer a pack at source facility for our World Parts Centre.  Parkinson Harness Technology also understand and appreciate the high standards that our company has and they are most efficient in delivering well within time limits.

From their expertise and quick turnaround to their helpful, knowledgeable, friendly staff, our experience with Parkinson Harness Technology confirms to us that we’re working with true leaders in the industry.   I would highly recommend working with them.

Vehicle Mounted Access Platforms

When Versalift won a large contract to supply BT Open Reach with vehicles they turned to Parkinson Harness to supply the electrical conversion kits to supplement their in-house capability.

David Ruffett of Versalift commented “We have been using PHT for some years now for our overflow work and knew we could rely on them. However, a large order like this had to delivered on time and with the highest standard of quality. We had meetings with PHT’s Sales Manager Ashley Dakin to explain the very demanding time-frame, expected schedule and requirements and he took it from there”

The PHT team set to work reverse engineering a sample kit from Versalift t and procuring parts ready to deliver at the agreed rate.

“This project is a prime example of our multi-discipline capability and ability to deliver against customer expectation” – Ashley Dakin

PHT supplied Versalift with complete electrical conversion kits utilising the following capability; excellent customer support, reverse engineering and creation of BOM/drawings, component procurement and managing of free issue parts, cable harness production, drilling panels and mounting of switch/control gear, panel wiring and assembly, system inspection and logistics.
