US industries boosted by global expansion of groundbreaking business

Apr 1, 2019

“It’s an exciting time for us and for the industries we serve”


April 1, 2019

A UK-based electrical services company that has supported US industries for over a decade has announced the official opening of its first North American office in Texas.

High Voltage Partial Discharge (HVPD) Inc is a trailblazer in the growing industry of partial discharge monitoring. The innovative company helps some of the biggest companies in the world streamline their operations by ensuring the safe and efficient management of their electrical assets.

The new office will allow HVPD to cater for its established client base of industrial and commercial clients in the USA, as well as its growing customer list in the oil & gas sector.

Vice President of Operations Lewis Dodd has permanently relocated from HVPD’s office in Manchester to Texas, where he will primarily be based out of Dallas but split his time between Dallas and Houston, to build on the success the company has already enjoyed ‘across the pond’.

He said: “I am proud and excited to be a part of this expansion – I look forward to being able to better serve our US customers from a local base, as well as being able to provide our business-boosting services to more new customers in the region. We are delighted to operate out of Texas, and having a presence in a booming industrial region that allows us to reach customers all across the country.

“With the increasing number of customers in North America, our presence in Texas enables us to serve customers locally, to provide on-site test services, product demonstrations, carry stock to reduce lead times for delivery and to have greater capabilities for hosting of US customers for local consultations and training courses. It’s an exciting time for us, and for the industries we serve.

The move shows HVPD’s dedication to its US customers, some of which they have served for over 10 years. It will also allow the company to expand operations in North America.

The new office follows the opening of the company’s China operations in 2012. Serving more than 500 customers in 100 countries including BP, ExxonMobil, and Chevron, HVPD has gone from strength to strength since being founded in 2004.

HVPD has been awarded two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the categories of Innovation and International Trade. For more information, visit
