The company’s roots go back to pre-war Britain. A chance conversation over the garden fence led to Mr Skerry being offered an apprenticeship with the local electricity board. Shortly after returning from the services he recognised there was a demand for independent electrical contractors in the area and formed the company in 1951.
From the earliest days Mr Skerry was keen to integrate the latest emerging technologies hence in the 1980’s the company diversified into the data comms market.
The day to day running is now carried out by Mr John Skerry who has continued the innovative policy of the company.
The company recognised the requirement for training and to that end the company are proud to have taken on an apprentice virtually every year as well as participating in providing further training in skills development for existing employees. Our apprentices have been successful in both National and regional awards over the years.
