Steve Palmer - Electrician
On leaving Chew Valley School, I joined South Western Electricity Board as an apprentice. After completing a four year apprenticeship, I qualified as an electrician working in Industrial, Commercial and Domestic environments. After 10 years' service, SWEB was privatised and I was forced to move on.
Following a short spell in Australia, I joined a local Hotel and Country Club working in the maintenance department. I was promoted to Maintenance Manager leading a team of eight.
And now ?
It has always been my ambition to own my own company and last October I took the plunge into the unknown and started "EIA Electrical". Covering all aspects of commercial, domestic and agricultural electrical work, I am beginning to establish myself in Wrington Vale, the Chew Valley and surrounding areas.
From small works like changing a light fitting to domestic and commercial rewires and fault finding, I now have a growing customer base which includes several local companies and many repeat domestic customers providing me with a varied workload which changes on an almost daily basis.
With all works guaranteed and complying with the 16th edition IEE wiring regulations, I am working towards enrolment with the NICEIC - our governing body.
For budding DIYers just phoning for advice, I am only a phone call away and always willing to help with tips and advice.
Additional services I can offer include: Intruder Alarm installation, repair and maintenance. Electric showers wired and plumbed, TV & FM aerials, CCTV, Door Access, E7 heating and three-phase installations and repair.
My aim is to provide a competitive, reliable, quality service to all my clients, whether they are large companies wanting maintenance contracts and call outs, to domestic customers wanting an extra light or socket.
You can reach me on 01934 862895 or on my mobile - 0793 0405 314.
