Owen & Palmer began trading from a small shop on Bangor High Street in 1935 and became a limited company in 1973.
The business has continued to develop and grow and moved to Llandygai Industrial Estate in 1987 where we are still based today.
We currently employ over 35 full time members of staff, eight of whom are office based in managerial, clerical or technical positions with the remaining out in the field working as foremen, supervisors, approved electricians, electricians and labourers, we also have a number of apprentices at various stages of their training.
Our location enables us to easily serve clients within the Counties of Anglesey, Conwy and Gwynedd, although we do work further afield when the project requires it.
As an additional benefit to our normal services we can offer a 24hr emergency call out facility if required.
One of the many contributory factors of Owen & Palmer Limited's success has been its staff loyalty, and the continuing policy of apprentice training with close collaboration with local colleges and schools. We also continue to train and develop the skills and health & safety knowledge throughout their career with us; such training includes:
- Asbestos Awareness (UKATA)
- The Prefabricated Access Suppliers' and Manufacturers' Association (PASMA)
- Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs)
- First Aid
- Manual Handling
- ECA Supervisory & Management Courses
- Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH)
- Electrical Installation Higher National Certification (HNC)
Managers, Supervisors and Electricians hold a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card which means they can prove their identity, their qualified status and occupation when working on-site. They also have to undergo the ECS health & safety assessment which enables them to prove their health and safety competency.
As holders of BS EN ISO 9001 and BS EN ISO 14001 you can be assured that we take the management of our business, and its impact on the environment seriously.
We are continually looking for ways to improve the efficiency within the organisation to help reduce costs which in turn, we can pass on to our clients so that we can maintain competitive prices. We also try to minimise our waste and recycle as much as possible with regular reviews of our policies and procedures which we communicate to our personnel, suppliers and contractors who work with, or for us.
We pride ourselves on our customer service and fully appreciate our clients unique requirements and we are dedicated to improving our quality of service to ensure clients obtain complete satisfaction.
Our client relationships are personal and friendly, yet professional and comprehensive which has helped us develop a large customer base with repeat business, and by regularly analysing our strategies, methods and communications we are able to complete projects on time and within budget.
