About Blakley Electrics Limited

Blakley Electrics Limited was formed in 1957 by the late Don Blakley and in October 2017 we celebrated 60 years in business. The company is still owned by the Blakley family and continues to be customer focussed and committed to providing the highest levels of customer satisfaction, through the design, manufacture and distribution of high performance Power and Lighting products.

Locations

We operate from three locations in the UK:

  • Crayford in Kent, which is our Head Office and Southern Customer Service Centre;
  • Wakefield in West Yorkshire, which is our Northern Customer Service Centre; and
  • Harlow in Essex, which is our Engineering Centre and main Fabrication and Manufacturing facility.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Our Customer Service Centres stock a wide range of finished products and our friendly and efficient Sales Teams provide a high level of product and commercial support. Experienced technical personnel are based at our Harlow Engineering Centre, who can provide detailed advice and guidance on the application and installation of all Blakley products. Technical and Project Engineers are also available to visit customers, to discuss requirements in detail and ensure the best possible solution is provided.

Approvals

We are accredited to Quality Management System Standard ISO9001:2008. The scope of our approval covers the design and manufacture of low voltage Electrical Distribution, Protection and associated Lighting equipment up to 1000V a.c. and Power Transformers for industrial applications up to 250kVA and 3300V ac. We hold a wide range of customer specific approvals, as well as Third Party test certification to support the design of standard and custom built products. All products are approved by our Engineering Department, who oversee extensive Routine and Type Testing, to ensure our equipment is fit for purpose and meets the long term expectations of our customers.

Manufacturing

The vast majority of Blakley products are manufactured in-house, harnessing over 50 years experience in specialist sheet metal fabrication and the electrical assembly of Distribution, Protection and Transformer products. Some moulding processes are carried out by specialist contractors on Blakley owned tooling and light fittings are sourced from approved suppliers from around the world. Our manufacturing expertise is underpinned by a combination of long term investment in CAD equipment, modern facilities and machinery and a dedicated, long serving, skilled work force, who apply their knowledge and experience to all stages of the Design and Manufacturing process.

Information Technology

Long term investment in IT systems and infrastructure ensures we are fully integrated across our organisation and able to support the requirements of customers in the UK and around the world.

Customer Visits

We welcome and encourage customers to visit any of our sites. At Crayford we have a dedicated Customer Centre where we can demonstrate products and concepts, discuss projects, host meetings and carry out customer training.
