We pride ourselves  in quality, flexibility, rapid response and reliability. We cover the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors, offering a single point of call for all your electrical needs. Whether it’s installs, rewiring, electrical testing and inspection or energy efficiency solutions, North West Electrical Services has it covered.

Why did you start your own business?

With many years’ experience in the electrical industry, covering a wide variety of sectors, we decided to take a leap and start out on our own. Thankfully we are all happy with the decision we made, and although the last few months have been challenging, they have also been very rewarding and we cannot wait to progress even further in the future.

What are the best things about running your own business?

The best thing about running our own business is the chance to carry out work in our own way, and to see our apprentices grow and progress into fully trained professional electrical engineers.

What are the main challenges facing the business? 

As a new business, the main challenge for us is getting the name of North West Electrical Services known.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business? 

If you have the commitment and dedication to put in the hard work, then go for it! There are many challenges facing new businesses, but with the right team behind you, all the hard work will hopefully pay off.

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Exciting, challenging, grateful.
