This is a family run business that was established by Alan Manchip in Holford in 1983 with just one man and a van.
The business grew and Alan Manchip had to take on another electrician to cope with the increase in work. Then in 1986 Alan’s son Glen Manchip joined the business and it has gone from strength to strength. Alan Manchip specialises in the refrigeration and air conditioning and Glen Manchip concentrates on the electrical work.
As the business continued to grow it became necessary to move to larger premises and in 2003 we had purpose built offices and a work shop constructed. We have a fleet of modern, fully equipped vans servicing an area of roughly 30 – 45 mile radius but we do go further a field for bigger contracts.
We became incorporated in October 2004.
All our electrical engineers are fully qualified to City and Guilds 2360 standard and we pride ourselves on our continued commitment to training. We usually have an intake of apprentices each September and work closely with Bridgwater College for our training programme.
We are NICEIC Approved Contractors (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors – enrolment number 024805000) UKAS Product Certification 118. The business has been assessed as having the technical capability to carry out electrical work in accordance with BS 7671: Requirements for electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations).
Membership of the NICEIC also means that we are registered NICEIC Domestic Installers. Any electrical work which involves new additions to a domestic installation requires a Domestic Installers certificate which complies with Part P Regulations.
