Back in 1991 GB Electrical began life installing and repairing electrical systems to homes and businesses in Herefordshire. That small family company has grown considerably in our 30-year history, due in no small part to keeping the same values and philosophy that brought us to where we are today. That philosophy revolves around delivering value to our customers, making a difference and providing a service we can take pride in.
So what does the future hold for us?
Growth and a move to new premises
It would be very easy to rest on our laurels, but that has never been the GB way. While recent times have seen us all affected by uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to the planning, hard work and dedication of our team we have been able to provide the services our customers have relied on through the pandemic. Everyone at GB Electrical & Building Services LTD is proud to have played their part in helping each other through those difficult times. Our reward is the great news of a move to newer, bigger premises.
Our new home is close to our current site in Herefordshire, chosen specifically for its range of notable benefits to our customers, to us and our aspirations for the future.
Here are just a few of the benefits:
A new Indoor warehouse
With extensive refurbishment now complete, our new indoor warehouse will be significantly bigger than our existing facility. Allowing us to lower our carbon footprint, hold more of the essential materials our clients rely on and provide them at shorter notice.
Greater office Space
If, as we hope, the future sees us continuing to undertake an even broader range of client projects, and forge lasting relationships with partners both in Herefordshire and nationally, then our new offices will give us an even greater ability to support our teams in the field and our clients.
Expanding our teams
As we aim for growth in the future, we’re creating new local jobs, apprenticeships and investing in training to bring every one of them up to the standards we are known for to safeguard our future and make sure it is in the best possible hands.
Larger scale projects and expanding services
Our future looks bright, we have the new premises and we have growing teams.
Our property management team is able to serve Housing Associations, Nursing Homes and Large-scale property portfolios right across Herefordshire and into neighbouring counties.
Our versatility enables us to offer them a solution for any requirement, no matter how big.
Our Home Adaptations team has seen a similar level of growth; working closely with both local councils and private homeowners we can look forward to a future where we can help to empower more and more people to remain independent in their own homes.
We can do that by providing anything, from landscaping and groundwork, to disability adaptations and complete level access wetrooms and garage conversions.
We are proud to have recently secured a 7 year (with 3 year extension) contract to provide our services to the Ministry of Defence. This is a great example of how far we have come as a company and an indication of the potential for the future as we look to build lasting positive relationships.
Adapting to change
Our pledge to embrace sustainability has meant we are now a fully approved Office for Zero Emissions installer. That means we can now install OZEV grant funded electric chargers, as well as private commissions for homeowners with electric vehicles.
This is in line with the government’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2050. For our own part, we have already taken great strides in becoming a sustainable business across all our operations. We aim to continue leading the way in the future.
For homeowners and commercial clients, we know that means a lot. For our public sector clients, reliability, versatility and adaptability are all qualities we aim to bring to the table today and into the future as their needs change.
Growth inspired by success
As a business we don’t define success by profit alone, our unique selling points are the quality of our people and the wide range of services we now provide. It is vital that those qualities we have are instilled into the next generation of our trade teams, through experience, training and investment.
Our people and our philosophy have served us well over the last thirty years; they’ll do the same for the next thirty.
