Hannington-Gilbert & Co Ltd was founded in 1965, the company moved to its present premises in 1972. Between 1972 & 1999 it was a partnership of Clive Gilbert and Alan Watson. After Alan’s retirement Keith Wells became a director having started with the company as an apprentice. In 2011 Clive’s sons Max and Dave became company directors having worked with the company for many years. In 2015 Keith retired and his position was passed on to Peter Chapman who had also started with us as an apprentice and risen through the ranks.
In 2011 we moved from our shop premises in Queens road to a new industrial unit on Ivyhouse Lane industrial estate. Our Offices, stores and workshops cater for the busy electrical contracting business.
The high standard of electrical contracting is ensured by membership of the Electrical Contractors Association and National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting. Which offers genuine and reliable consumer protection. All the electricians employed are trained to the latest wiring regulations. A further two apprentices are being trained at the present time, under the latest training scheme ensuring continued company growth. We also hold accreditation with Acclaim health and safety scheme and Constructionline. Our membership of Checkatrade allows clients to give feedback and potential clients to see our excellent record.
We have been pleased to carry out work in recent years for Hastings Borough Council, Rother District Council, Hastings Town Centre Mangement, T Bourne and Sons of Rye, and in conjunction with George Stone Ltd, work at various properties for The National Trust, and also work for many private customers.
