50 Years as an NICEIC Approved Contractor

Celebrating 50 Years as an NICEIC Approved Contractor

This week we are celebrating!

Most people are familiar with the NICEIC, maybe without even realising it. It is the body who works to ensure that electrical contractors carry out electrical work safely and to a high and consistent standard.

It was formed some 60 years ago now, at a time when there was a lack of any uniformity governing standards of workmanship and electrical safety. As part of their ongoing anniversary celebrations they are reaching out in recognition of some of their longest registered members.

We are very pleased to rank among them. Chapmans marks a significant milestone too with 50 years as an NICEIC approved electrical contractor!

Chapmans was first established way back in 1925 by a young Mr. Ewart Chapman. An electrical contractor from the outset at a time when electricity was starting to become quite widely used in industry and starting to enter the home. A few years later he opened a small shop, stocking radios and accumulators – the original type of battery – and various other electrical accoutrements.

It’s a vastly different world we live in today. An exciting one where technology advances almost daily. Chapmans has changed along with it and grown, but it remains a family run business to this day.

It’s this long heritage which instils us with an uncommon focus on service, safety and high standards of workmanship, so we’re very proud to join NICEIC in their celebrations. Look out for the certificate next time you’re in!
