Building firm honoured at national award

The rise and rise of one of Gloucestershire's best known building contractors continues with a national award in which it was singled out for special praise.

When Steve Evans started his electrical business back in the 1980s little could he have imagined it would be 900 staff-strong and wiring 21,000 new-building properties last year alone.

Today, headed by Nathan Evans the Staverton-based Clarkson Evans is still growing and has just walked away with the prestigious Large Contractor of the Year trophy at one of the electrical industry's biggest events, the ECA Awards.

Nathan, managing director, said: "What a fantastic achievement! It just shows what a brilliant team of staff we have here and I'd like to thank every single one of them, at every one of our 20 branches, for doing their jobs really well, day in and day out."

Judges from the Electrical Contractors Association singled out Clarkson Evans from amongst some of the most established businesses in the sector, including fellow finalists NG Bailey.

They were particularly impressed by the company's commitment to delivering high quality customer service, and to developing staff through its in-house apprenticeship programme.

Clarkson Evans is the largest electrical contractor serving the new-build housing sector.

It has 20 branches nationwide and directly employs over 900 staff (not subcontractors) and trains large numbers of apprentices.

"We're particularly proud to have received this particular award because it means so much in the electrical industry", said Nathan. "We're proud of what we do but we don't take anything for granted and such national recognition means a lot to us."
