Midlands-based Mr Electric is helping to fill the gap following the collapse of facilities management and construction giant Carillion.
The huge multinational company went into compulsory liquidation on January 15, affecting more than 40,000 employees, half of which are in the UK, and tens of thousands of customers and suppliers.
Mr Electric Birmingham North has already started receiving calls from Carillion customers and is encouraging anyone who has an urgent requirement for electrical or facilities management services to get in touch.
Franchise owner, Jeff Longley, said: “The collapse of Carillion is terrible news for the industry and the thousands of workers and businesses it will affect. I expect the fall-out for this will continue to be felt for a long time to come.
“If any schools or businesses have been left in the lurch as a result and need urgent or ongoing electrical, energy efficiency or facilities management services, Mr Electric can help. We will be working hard to accommodate as many former Carillion customers as possible.
“The beauty of working with a medium-sized company like Mr Electric is that we don’t subcontract out, so there isn’t that extra layer of cost and you will always know who you are dealing with. As we only send our own local tradesmen, we can guarantee the quality of staff, the level of customer service and the standard of work undertaken.
“Our customers have direct access to myself and the Mr Electric team, so they are guaranteed a quick response in an emergency, to ensure the problem is sorted as soon as possible. All staff are DBS-checked, wear a uniform, carry Mr Electric ID and have the appropriate qualifications, and our prices are competitive.
“If any former Carillion customers are looking for a new provider for their electrical or facilities management services, or if they have an urgent requirement as a result of the company’s collapse, I’d encourage them to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
Mr Electric has more than 50 years of experience in the electrical industry and is established as one of the premiere service providers, including all aspects of facilities management, energy efficiency services, electrical monitoring and preventative maintenance, EICR testing, 24/7/365 emergency response and much more.
