Your Carbon Brush Supplier


At Watson Electric Ltd, our core business is in the supply and manufacture of Carbon Brushes to industry. We also offer a large range of other carbon based products and ancillary items, such as brush holders, slip rings, commutators, bearings, seals, vanes and maintenance products.

About Us

Watson Electric Ltd was founded in 1978, its initial priority being to provide a fast and efficient service for the delivery of carbon brushes to electric rewinders and various other end users. We now keep thousands of brushes in stock, but also offer same-day manufacturing of non-stock parts if required. Based in the UK, we supply quality carbon brushes globally to a variety of clients. We can supply most brushes within 1 to 2 days, however, large quantity orders may take longer but could benefit from a bulk pricing structure.
