Omega Red Group - UK Market Leader in Earthing & Lightning Protection Design & Installation

An Introduction to Omega Red Group

T&D are delighted to announce that they have made an agreement to become Social Media Partners with Omega Red Group, the UK market leader in the design and installation of Electrical Earthing and Lightning Protection Systems.

The merging of their combined strengths will promote education, learning and technical knowledge with respect to Power Earthing of substations and contribute to the sustained business development of both companies.


“We are delighted and excited to be working together with Omega Red Group.

As specialist contractors they are the UK market leader in their field of electrical earthing and lightning protection, therefore we can learn a lot from their years of hands-on technical experience and expertise.

After an initial meeting with Jason Leatherland, Business Development Manager, it became very clear that, although we had of course heard of Omega Red Group, we knew very little about the actual company, the size, the market status and the technical services and expertise that they could offer. Hopefully, after becoming their social media partner we can help raise the profile of this prestigious company and further cement their place as the UK’s number 1”

Chris Dodds, UK Sales & Marketing Manager, Thorne & Derrick

“I have been extremely impressed with the work T&D's Marketing Team have produced and continue to produce day after day. The energy, intensity and reach of their work is infectious and should truly be applauded. They have seized the amazing power and reach of social media, SEO and electronic marketing to deliver 5 consecutive years of sales growth.

T&D lead the field through constantly expanding professional networks, such as their LinkedIn Discussion Group and Blog.  

T&D are a social media giant so to be able to work together with them is very exciting and something we are very proud of”

Jason Leatherland, Business Development Manager, Omega Red Group
