Back in February 1992 at the age of 21 when I founded David Pearce Electrical I had two very simple business strategies. The first was to trade in a respectful, professional and courteous manner to develop long-standing repeat business relationships with my customer base and the second was to appreciate and value all customers equally. After all ‘today’s small domestic job could be the facilitator of tomorrows hundred thousand pound contract’.
I am most proud and delighted to advise that now 25 years plus on these simple business strategies are very much the ethos of David Pearce (Electrical Contractors) Limited and under my management and direction my team is focused to strive to deliver these simple but core values.
In 1992, following the completion of a City & Guilds Apprenticeship and the gaining of valuable experience with a well-established electrical contractor, I left the security of employment, sold my car and purchased a second hand (1986) Ford Fiesta Van. David Pearce Electrical Contractors was born! Now, 25 years plus on I have a team to help me look after the needs of our ever expanding client base. Many of my workforce and administration team have worked for me for the majority of their working life, and I am very proud of them.
