Margate Engineering

About Us

If 2020 was a year of great change, well so was 1974 for the Howard-Tripp family when they purchased Margate Engineering. Don Cooper had successfully run this business since 1958 prior to selling. This family business, would span three generations from Bob to Geoff to Jason. The ethos on which Margate Engineering was founded, still stands true today. “If a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well.” From humble beginnings, the firm grew to what it is today, a recognizable and trusted name in the industry.

Our Clients Reviews

Well done Margate Engineering! After 21 years the Original Intercom system and Main Gate Motor installed by Margate Engineering at our complex was struck by lightning. Jason, Ronnie and his team came and redid the entire system. Fabulous Service!! They have just recently done a follow up checking that all the units are still in good working order. Such efficiency is very much appreciated and goes a long way. Thank you again.
