KBS Electrical and Data Services Limited was established in July 2004 when the management buy out of KBS (Electrical Engineers) Ltd was completed. KBS (Electrical Engineers) Ltd was first established in 1961 K. BOULTBEE LTD for 28 years. In 1982, a branch in Reading was established to capitalise on increasing business opportunities in this market, this office was moved to Hampton, Middlesex in 1992. This office traded as K. BOULTBEE (SOUTHERN) LTD for 8 years however, when the northern branch moved to new and larger premises it was decided to combine the two company names and trade both offices as KBS (ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS) LTD.
The ownership of the Company is with Mr Trevor Corp and Mr Perry Robson and the company is financially independent.
The Company has been steadily increasing in size since its inception and has continued to grow despite various recessions. This is mainly due to its versatility, high standards of workmanship, loyal workforce, customer service and professional approach to managing its contracts. Thus the Company has an outstanding reputation and considerable goodwill with its clients.
Although the Company has carried out installation works on a variety of different projects in recent years it has established an excellent reputation with national retailers both supermarket and department stores. These clients demand high standards of technical input, workmanship, safety and continuous achievement of programme targets. Furthermore the Directors and Manager’s of the Company continue to respond to all reasonable requests for guidance and information even after the contracts have been completed and final accounts settled, thus a great trust between client and contractor has evolved during the Company's history.
The majority of our contracts are completed using ‘in-house’ employees known to us over many years, which allows essential controls over manpower during our projects. The Company has qualified staff in the production of ‘As Fitted’ drawings using AutoCAD together with experienced administration staff for the production of accounts, estimating and job costing.
We are members of the following industry associations:
The Electrical Contractors Association (E.C.A.) - covered by their 'guarantee of work' scheme.
Joint Industrial Board (JIB)
Thus with the Company’s employees’ qualifications and technical abilities to fulfil any type of project, we are able to carry out work throughout the UK providing electrical engineering services to the varying requirements of our Clients in the building, retail, industrial, private and commercial markets.
