Industrial electrician in St Albans, London and Hertfordshire

We talk a lot in our posts about how we help house holders with their electrics, but did you know that Fulcher Edwards are also industrial electrical contractors? We are just as at home working in industrial areas such as factories, warehouses, and car plants as we are working in offices and our clients homes.

Our team of expert and highly experienced industrial electricians in St Albans, London and Hertfordshire, work in a variety of industrial areas. Carrying out electrical maintenance, commissioning, testing of new installation, and ensuring the workplace remains not only electrically and fire safe, but also safe from a Health and Safety aspect.

What do we do?

You’ll normally find one of our industrial electricians busily carrying out testing, repairing or maintenance of machinery. Fully operational machinery is integral to business success and here at Fulcher Edwards we are committed to keeping operational downtime to an absolute minimum. Of course we will talk to you, our client, in full detail about what to expect whilst we carry out electrical work on your behalf, and to this end we are happy to work at a time that suits you. This includes evenings, weekends, and even overnight if required.

Expert advice from Hertfordshires leading electricians

At Fulcher Edwards, we go much further than simply carrying out industrial electrical work. We work with our clients designing and installing electrical installations that not only save money on energy costs and maintenance, but also work to promote employee comfort and essentially Health and Safety. One of the key projects we worked upon was in a printing factory replacing the outdated flickering ‘tube’ lighting. The main requirement during the factory refurbishment project was to find a lighting solution to overcome the outdated florescent tubes. As they were distorting the movement of machinery. The flickering of the lights made dangerous components of the printing press appear as if they were moving, when in fact they were still. (There were no ghosts involved!!)

The new lighting also produced dramatic energy savings and far improved performance.

How to find a good industrial electrician

We often get asked the question what is the difference between a domestic and industrial electrician? The rough answer is quite a bit! It is very important that when you hire an industrial electrician that they have experience working in an industrial environment. Unfortunately we have seen evidence on industrial jobs of domestic electricians attempting industrial work which they have no experience of. For example, we often come across PAT testing stickers on industrial machinery. PAT testing is for small electrical appliances.  PAT testing equipment is not suitable for testing on Industrial machinery.
