We are a professional, family-run business, established in 2006, providing reliable, high quality electrical services throughout Sussex, with a lot of our work being in the East Sussex towns of Hailsham, Eastbourne, Heathfield and Uckfield.

We have grown organically over the years; Tim Funnell joined the company in 2009, followed by Tim Woodhams in 2014. Both Tims joined on an apprenticeship scheme, and both have been nominated for awards by their college (see full profiles by clicking on the photos below). We also use trusted sub-contractors for larger projects.  Graham runs the business with his wife Liz, who covers office management, administration and health & safety (as well as taking a lot of calls from our potential clients!)

We are NICEIC (& therefore Part P) registered, and are also accredited by the Trading Standards ‘Buy with Confidence’ scheme, so you can rest assured in the knowledge that we consistently provide a high standard of customer service. As you would expect, we are fully insured, holding both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.

Graham is a fully qualified and NICEIC registered electrician, with over 15 years’ experience in the electrical industry. His ethos has always been to deliver a professional, reliable service – and the respect and reputation that he and his team have built up in the local area over the past 10+ years is testament to that.

Prior to setting up his own business, Graham initially worked as an electrical engineer at an aerodynamic equipment manufacturer, and then went on to work as an electrician with a local firm.

Tim is a fully qualified electrician, having successfully completed his apprenticeship in 2013. Tim joined the company in 2009; we were really chuffed when Tim was nominated by his college for the Apprenticeship of the Year award (Southern Area).

After finishing his apprenticeship, Tim also successfully completed his Inspection & Testing course.

Outside of work, he enjoys working his gun dog, Levi.

Tim joined us in 2014, and completed his apprenticeship in February 2019. He was awarded recognition for his skills when he came 2nd in the World Skills (Southern Region) Electrical Installations competition.

Having two Tims on the team presented us with a small identification crisis, so Tim is officially known as ‘Neph’ (as well as being Tim, he also happens to be Graham’s nephew)!

Liz looks after the administrative and office management aspects of the business, and also health & safety. She will likely be the person you speak to if you call during office hours. A trained nurse, she has also on occasions been given the tongue-in-cheek title of ‘Union Rep’!
