    This is the consumer unit fitted in my shed, it's very compact and I would like to get another. Does anyone the make and who supplies them?

    Out of interest why do you want another in your shed?

    Why get a new one? if it is working fine and not dangerous then leave as it is and save your money, If you do change it then you will need to get an electrician in to do it as its notifiable to building control under the part p stuff.
    So do not take this the wrong way but the question you asked in your post about who makes them and where to buy suggests that you are not either a electrician or 'electrically competent' so to speak so I still suggest getting a local electrician in if you do decide to change it.

    Perhaps he is going to "shed" his consumer unit.

    Hi AJ - with my tin hat on - if the sheds are on your residential property then a new CU needs to be metal, as a starter for ten. Here's an IP rated one for example :

    You must complete a risk assessment. And who pays for your yearly revisit to re-assess the risk?
