Business Profile

This well known and respected business was founded by the vendor in 1980 after a successful period as an independent electrician, and provides electrical maintenance & contracting services and some building services, to clients and customers primarily in the North and West areas of London. The firm has developed, over time, long term commercial relationships with large firms in the Film Industry and has become relied upon for their specialist knowledge in dealing proficiently with the very particular needs of that sector.

The company employs a highly skilled workforce both full time & part time/contract and each project has its own dedicated and highly experienced manager responsible for all matters including, job scope, materials supply to site, people and client/customer matters.

The company has become known as a reliable, quality-focused, contractor with particular expertise in the Film Industry where the focus is on a complete understanding of the nature of that industry and for the efficient and prompt solving of electrical and building issues. Similarly these company traits serve just as well for the other key area of business, which is in the maintenance of Marinas.
