Since 2006, the company has flourished within the commercial sector and turnover has risen to an expected £1.3m in 2009. The mainstay of this work has been with several major clients including Iceland Foods, Heritage Estate Agents, Air Cool Engineering, etc. The scope of works for these clients has varied in value from £350k for the complete installation of electrical services for a major client in the UK banking sector, to £45k for a smaller project at a new Iceland store in Ealing. In the domestic market, we have taken on a range of jobs from complete house re-wires, to the re-positioning of a plug socket.

 

Since July 2008, Glen has become a business partner within the company, thereby adding stability to the company’s long-term strategy. In addition, Alex Jones has recently joined the team as Procurement Manager in order to manage the major supplier-related aspects of the business winning process, along with maximising business potential.
