Electrical Contractors with over 85 years of experience
Over 85 Years of experience as electrical contractors since 1935 and a dedicated team of over 35 engineers, and a 100+ person strong team with all our partners. No job is too big, too small or too complex.
Owen & Palmer began trading from a small shop on Bangor High Street in 1935 (Our telephone number was 203!) and became a limited company in 1973. Our business has continued to develop and grow and we made the move to a unit on Llandygai Industrial Estate in 1987, just around the corner.
We currently employ over 35 full time members of staff, eight of whom are office based in managerial, clerical, estimating and technical positions. Our remaining team are out in the field working as foremen, supervisors, approved electricians, electricians and labourers. To support the next generation, we also enjoy hosting a number of apprentices at various stages of their training.
Our perfect location enables us to easily serve clients within the Counties of Anglesey, Conwy and Gwynedd, and we are willing and able to work further afield when the project requires.
As an additional benefit to our normal services, we can offer a 24hr emergency call out facility to larger contracts for complete peace of mind.
Our management systems are independently verified through our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Accreditation.
One of the many contributory factors of our success has been our staff loyalty and their friendly, competent, and polite manner they present to our clients. We have a continuing policy of improvement and enable constant training and development of skills and appropriate health & safety knowledge throughout everyone’s career with us. After that, our policies extends through to supporting and training apprentices, with close collaboration with their local college supervisors. For instance, we up-skill our engineers with training modules such as:
- 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 all hold a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card. This enables all of us to prove our identity, our qualified status and occupation when working on-site. Our engineers also undertake the ECS Health & Safety Assessment which enables them to prove their health and safety competency.
