Yorvik Electrical Contractors is headed by electricians Mike Frew and Ben Skilbeck. They began business together in 2004, when House & Son (Electric) Limited, formally York’s oldest family run electrical company, closed after the retirement of the remaining House family member.
The management team, headed by electricians Ben Skilbeck and Mike Frew, together with the majority of the existing contracting division staff, got together to form a new company – Yorvik Electrical Contractors Ltd.
They say: “In Yorvik’s first year, we aimed to assure all our original loyal customers that we are here to stay and that our commitment to quality and service is still paramount.”
Mike was apprentice-trained by House & Son and continued his technical qualifications at York Technical College before rejoining House & Son.
Ben joined House & Son as an estimator in 2000 having completed his training with another local electrical contractor.
All of our engineers started out as apprentices, so we have had the chance to watch them grow and teach them everything we have learnt in our 20+ years of experience in the electrical contracting field.
We have had the privilege of working closely with many reputable companies, like York Minster & York Housing Association, to provide their properties and buildings the very best service and electrical work.
Historically, the team has worked predominately in the York area, but now travel much further afield to accommodate existing customers.
