A Name That You Can Trust
Power Services Co Ltd. (PSCL) was incorporated in Jamaica under the Company’s Act in 1983 as a limited liability company. The company started active operations in 1995 and has since been registered with Jamaica Professional Engineers Registration Board and the National Contracts Commission. PSCL’s operations are guided by our motto, “world class services at competitive prices”. This guides all our functions and goals as a company to ensure the consistent provision of accurate quotations, professional advice, and timely deliveries. This has subsequently helped us gain trust and recognition from large scale corporations and establish a strong and consistent client base over the years.
Mr. Timothy Augustine Scarlett graduated from the University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus, Trinidad in 1968 with a BSc Degree in Electrical Engineering. His wealth of experience and expertise can be attributed to his tenure at a number of reputable institutions, namely Alpart, Jamalco, National Sugar Company Limited, and JPS Co, operating in the capacity of Project Engineer, head of the Electrical Maintenance Department, Factory Manager, Power Station Manager and Director, respectfully. Mr. Scarlett then had a dream to start his own business. Having garnered the necessary knowledge and capital, Mr. Scarlett was destined to make his dream a reality.
In 1983, Power Services Company Limited (hereinafter called PSCL) was incorporated under the Jamaica Companies Act by Timothy Augustine Scarlett as Managing Director. In 1995, after eleven years of continuous research and gaining even more knowledge, he decided to bring PSCL into active operations. He resigned from his post as District Manager, Customer Service Regional Manager and Director at JPS Co. Ltd and assumed his ongoing role as Managing Director of PSCL. He attained space at Midway Mall, Caledonia Road, Mandeville, an area measuring approximately 20×40.
Timothy’s journey with PSCL wasn’t a walk in the park. PSCL encountered many obstacles. In late 1995, after its opening, Timothy struggled with purchasing the necessary office equipment. The September rains brought about additional setbacks, as the roof leaked so intensely that Mr. Scarlett had to bail water from the office daily. Being a natural leader and innovator, Mr. Scarlett was eventually able to triumph past these challenges, as in 1999, PSCL had seven staff members, a fleet of five-line trucks and two pick-ups. The company carried out various contracts, mainly pole line works with JPS Co. Ltd. With this steady growth, the company needed to expand its geographical location, resulting in a move to 66 Caledonia Road, Mandeville, and Manchester. Here, great memories were created.
Mr. Scarlett ensured that all the work completed by PSCL is not only done to the highest standards, but meets the safety standards as well. He brought vigour to the company’s safety motto – the safe way is the best way all the time! This motto is at the core of all aspects of the company’s operation. In 2001, the company relocated once more, to its now permanent home at 64 Caledonia Road, Mandeville, Manchester. This is where PSCL grew as an international enterprise. Presently, after twenty-four years of operating PSCL, Timothy continues to build the confidence of PSCL’s approximated 400 employees by training and upgrading facilities and fleet to a level that promotes productivity and efficiency. He is the driving force behind PSCL’s domination and strength in Jamaica’s engineering industry!
