About us

Our Story and Statement of Intent

Blaby Electrical was founded in August 1986, within the same week that the owner; Tony Smith got married and sold his home in Blaby to help finance the business. Tony is still the Managing Director, and still married to his wife. The company ethos when established was, and still is 32 years on: ‘Service and Quality’. If we can achieve this, whilst being competitive price wise, then our standards will achieve great customer satisfaction.

Our office is now based in Wigston Leicester as the company has grown, and branched out in 1998 to include the Security Industry; installing Domestic/Commercial and Police Monitored Intruder Alarm Systems, CCTV, Door Access Controls, and Fire Alarm Systems. This makes Blaby Electrical the number one company to call on when you want the full installation package.

We still carry out small works, but have expanded to include installs incorporating all the above package to £1million+ contracts across the Midlands and beyond.

Blaby Electrical’s client base is quite impressive with customers such as Cemex based in Rugby, where we have been the on-site resident electrical contractor for many years carrying out installation works, as well as further Cemex sites across the UK since 2008.

It is the MDs intention to continue growing the company, invest in his workforce and continue to offer ‘Service and Quality’ to Blaby Electrical’s existing and new customers.
