About Blandfords

Telephone: 01536 483699

Blandfords was originally founded in 1969 as a partnership between husband and wife team Brian and Jean Smith.

Initially run as a one-man business, and known as Blandford Electrical Services, the Kettering company soon expanded due to high customer demand and the reputation it had gained for high quality work and a prompt friendly service.

Both Brian and Jean have retired, they left the running of the business in the capable hands of their son Paul Smith, who joined the firm in 1984, and their son-in-law Chris Canham, who joined in 1986. Paul has since taken a step back from the day to day running of the business. The most recent addition to the Partnership is Andy Baish who joined in 1994.

On 1st Nov 2005 Blandfords made a smooth transition into Limited Liability Partnership and have not looked back since. The increase in size, capability and the new corporate feel to the Company has opened many new doors and many larger projects are now well under way.

An always increasing customer base and a very strong order book is ensuring the future looks very positive for our well established company.

Blandfords is a great believer in continued training and we work very closely with the Tresham Institute and Kettering Borough Council training departments. Major investment in upgrading the knowledge and skills of our staff is a priority within our firm.

An excellent example of this commitment being our fully stocked technical library which our employees have unrestricted access to.

The library contains the latest information from The Institute of Electrical Engineers, NICEIC, Health & Safety Executive, British Standards Institute and documents detailing Building Regs, we also issue internal technical newsletters to ensure our staff are fully aware of the extensive regulations and requirements of our industry.

For the staff we advocate a friendly working atmosphere where the free flow of information and ideas is encouraged, communication being the key to a safe, healthy and successful business.
