Farmers, Engineers & Renewable Energy Installers
IEC will always go over and beyond to meet our customers expectations, We are farmers and engineers at heart, so tight stringent deadlines our turnkey packages demand, are normal practice and are achieved with dedication & long hours.
We have always installed the new technologies on our sites and ironed out any teething problems, so when we install the various technologies to our customers they know what they are buying actually works.
Our in-house philosophies are
‘We are the we can do company’
‘Do a proper job once not half a job twice’
