About Us

Kennet Electrical Contractors was formed in 2008 by Phil Shailes to provide highly professional, skilled electrical services throughout the South of England.

The company has grown significantly since then primarily through repeat business and word of mouth recommendations. As part of that expansion Shaun Cooper joined the management team in 2010.
