R&M stocks a vast range of Ex materials and supplies for our clients in the Hazardous Area sector within our UK branches and also throughout our International Divisions. Products stocked include, lighting, enclosures, control, distribution equipment, plugs, receptacles and accessories.

We are able to advise on the best use of modern technology incorporating the supply of energy saving products particularly in the field of lighting as well as providing maintenance friendly equipment that sometimes avoids the need for hot-work permits when isolating equipment for routine maintenance. In terms of value added services we provide site specific cataloguing and can assist in carrying out site survey’s providing product standardisation across your plant and also assist with replacement of obsolete electrical equipment.

Product assembly

In support of our petrochemical business we also populate, drill and assemble Ex junction boxes, enclosures and control stations in-house under license from several leading manufacturers including Eaton Crouse-Hinds (CEAG) and Weidmuller. This allows us to offer excellent lead times for our clients’ bespoke Ex d and Ex e junction box and control station requirements – for more information please visit our R&M Assembly pages.


Site specific Hazardous area training services are available with R&M. Our hazardous area specialists have vast experience in providing bespoke training services to petrochemical sites throughout the UK. 

Supply & MRO Agreements

The experience that we have gained in supplying the OGP sectors for over 20 years has allowed us to develop alliances and distributorships with many of Europe’s leading specialist manufacturers whose products are specified and installed on sites across the world. For over 19 years we have held the prestigious Exxon Mobil MRO contract (Maintenance, Repair & Operations) covering Fawley Refinery one of Europe’s largest refineries and also hold contracts with Valero at Pembroke as well as various overseas supply agreements.

Our sales engineers have proven experience in assisting with the specification of flameproof and hazardous area equipment, we can also assist with lighting design and in partnership with our manufacturers can provide installation training for much of the equipment that we supply.
