A Team Approach

The Commonwealth Games in 2014 showcased a wealth of talent on the track and field, but there were just as many performances of note taking place behind the scenes from specialist organisations that enabled the games to be such a success.

One such company was Black Country based IDE and Higgs & Sons is proud of the role it played in helping the organisation deliver a medal winning performance.

IDE is an integrated electrical engineering company specialising in the design and manufacture of permanent and temporary electrical distribution equipment. Based primarily in the Midlands with a presence in Scotland and the South East, IDE serves a number of sectors including healthcare, offshore power, the military and major international events.

“When a televised sporting event takes place, there is significant demand for power distribution systems which need to be quick to install, durable, safe and easy to use,” explains Ian Thomas, Managing Director.

“IDE has supplied large amounts of power distribution equipment to major sporting events over the last 20 years, including the Olympic Games. These are huge international events and require a great deal of planning and co-ordination. However they represent just one facet of what we do, so having a trusted legal adviser we can rely on is essential to the success of these projects.”

“To meet its wide-ranging needs, Higgs & Sons has provided support across several key areas from dispute resolution through to corporate and employment advice,” states Matt Dudley, Dispute Resolution Partner.

“We recognise that ide has a range of needs that can change according to the focus of the business at any given time. We offer a responsive service that can adapt quickly to such changing needs – I am more than happy to jump in my car at a moment’s notice should it be required; Client service certainly doesn’t end at 5 o’clock.

“It has been an exciting period of growth for ide over recent years and Higgs & Sons is looking forward to working with the company as it faces its next challenges - whatever they may be.”
