Our History

As fourth-generation electricians, the business has organically grown and expanded in team size and with that, we have acquired an abundance of knowledge and experience that has evolved over time. 

This invaluable vault of experience allows us to deliver bespoke electrical designs, installations, plus cabling and lighting services effectively and efficiently.

Starting from small beginnings, we now reach and service all types of businesses right across the East Midlands and around the UK.

With a rich heritage and strong family ties, read on to see how the Timms family has kept the trade going for nearly 100 years!

  • Where it all began…
