Electrical Contractor in Essex
So what is driving this increased business?
Firstly, we believe it is solely due to the importance that we place on our delivery of services and customer satisfaction. This is often overlooked when work is plentiful and companies expect a percentage of client loss (burn) to be acceptable. This is what sets us aside as a family business our ethic is that every client counts large or small. So we work hard to retain clients which is achieved by our responsive running and management of contracts.
Secondly, it’s down to being responsive to our client’s requirements and expanding our range of services and resources to deliver them. This is challenging but we developed our processes early on within our ISO 9001 QMS system. This provides us with the ability to expand by repeatedly implementing proven processes. Since 2020 we have doubled our electrical resource to 25 electricians, improvers, and apprentices. We are always looking for additional staff as you can see by visiting our Jobs board.
After 17 years of being in business, we know it pays to keep clients satisfied with the amount of repeat business that we experience.
The final and extremely important component to being able to expand the size of contracts we can undertake. It’s not just a matter of men in vans to get the job done. The office support required to run contracts efficiently is often overlooked. Without support your field engineers soon become inefficient, disillusioned and contracts will quickly fail.

- Management with the technical skills to support the range of services
