National award success for electrical employer
New-build house wiring specialists Clarkson Evans, which employa 50 people at its branches in Stafford and Telford, is celebrating after scooping a major award at one of the electrical industry’s biggest events of the year.
Judges from the Electrical Contractors Association singled out Clarkson Evans for the large contractor of the year award, largely in recognition of their successful in-house apprenticeship programme and commitment to delivering high quality customer service.
Managing director Nathan Evans said: “What a fantastic achievement! It just shows what a brilliant team of staff we have here and I’d like to thank every single one of them for doing their jobs really well, day in and day out.”
Clarkson Evans is the largest electrical contractor serving the new-build housing sector, having wired over 21,000 properties in the last year. Staff based at these branches contributed 1300 to this total, and with ambitious growth plans in the region, this number is set to increase.
“We’re always on the lookout for talented people to join us and start learning the trade through an apprenticeship or put their experience to good use by leading one of our electrical teams”, said Nathan. “Winning awards like the ECA Large Contractor of the Year is only possible if we employ the right people to help us grow and keep impressing our customers.”
Clarkson Evans employs over 900 staff, with a branch network that covers much of southern England, the Midlands and Wales. Plans are in place to develop operations further north in Warrington and Sheffield during 2019.
For more than 38 years, the company has worked alongside all the UK’s major housebuilders including Persimmon Homes, Bovis, Barratt, Taylor Wimpey and David Wilson, among others. In 2018, Clarkson Evans wired over 21,000 new homes; that’s one in 8 of all new homes built across England and Wales.
