Brimal Components
« on: July 22, 2017, 03:20:57 pm »
If I didn't already have loads of switches that still need connecting and I was was just starting out, I may have bought a few of these:

Other interesting/useful items on their website, too.

I'm using their Latching Indicator Circuit for Momentary Switch to set a signal at the same time as a point motor fires. It's a nice piece of kit. Link: http://www.brimal.co.uk/latching-indicator-circuit-for-momentary-switch.html

When I wanted to vary the set of components for train detection so that trains stopped in storage sidings would light a led continuously, they were good enough to supply just the parts needed instead of the full kit, and included extra magnets to compensate for the parts which I did not need.  No thought of "That's what we sell; take it or leave it."
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

There is no such company as Brimal Components Ltd, check with companies house if you do not believe me.

There is a Brimal Consultants Ltd registered at the same address, who may be trying to use a trading name, but it is not allowed to use Limited or Ltd as part of a trading name.

All Ltd companies are required to show their registration number on their website as well as the real company name if "trading as" something else.

Before buying, ask yourself: Why a company would want to behave this way?

Interesting. :hmmm: I've asked them direct. Watch this space.

It's a residential address, I suspect you may be overthinking it.

I'm not sure I'd place an order for 50k (well I would actually because I wouldn't actually notice the lack of a registered company number), but I suspect it's an omission rather than anything nefarious.

I have used Brimal Components on a number of occasions and have always been happy with the products and service. A spare 10/15 minutes browsing their website can be quite interesting. (Just a satisfied customer).

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

So? The registered address of a Limited company doesn't have to be the place of business. It can be the accountant's office, for example.

As a company director myself, who plays by the rules, I get irritated by the many "cottage industry" types who flout the law surrounding company information and, especially (not in this case as far as I am aware), obligations under distance selling and consumer protection regulations. Maybe ignorance or stupidity rather than something dodgy but there is no excuse given that the requirements are very easily found through Google.

I have purchased items from this organisation and was more than happy with the service and products supplied.

My sincere apologies if bringing this business to your attention has caused you offence.

Can't promise I won't do it again though!  :wave:

I bought a few connectors from them but used their Amazon reseller shop as it worked out cheaper overall.

 I have bought switches and cable from this company and had very good service and very good prices ,a lot cheaper than some other firms .I will definitely use them again if ever I need any more electric components.

Did not know this firm doesn't exist  :goggleeyes: as have ordered several items from them on different occasions. Overall found them to be very good, fast delivery, reasonable postage charges, order well packed without being excessive. They have some good kits/modules at good prices. Though some things can be found cheaper else where, if you are ordering it often works out cheaper as no extra seperate postage to be paid. And it means you get all you need at one time  :)
If at first you don't succeed, get somebody else to do it :)

They don't not exist, they're using "Ltd" in their website header, which indicates a private limited company. However I can't find a single other usage of Ltd, every other entry is just "Brimal Components", which could just be a sole trader, and his logo designer just got over enthusiastic.

Hence my suggestion that sprogman is being a little overzealous.
