Oakleaf Electrical Contractors Ltd was established in 1997 by Terry Whent, with Tony Cruickshank as Contracts Manager. Tony took full ownership of the Company in 2016 as Managing Director. Tony has over 37 years’ experience in the electrical industry and is pleased to offer advice over the telephone on various aspects of electrical installations relating to regulations.

We are an NICEIC approved contractor (since 1997) and are active members of the ECA, Constructionline and CHAS Premium Plus.

We currently employ 10 electricians and 5 apprentices. All apprentices undertake a nationally accredited training programme through the Joint Industry Board (JIB). Our approved electricians and apprentices are subject to Police and DBS vetting and undertake regular training.

We carry out a variety of works, including large new build and refurbishment contracts, general maintenance and electrical testing for local and national organisations, eg, Kent Police, Kent and Medway county councils, various schools, colleges and universities, hospitals and local NHS Trusts.

They are a very personable company and you will not regret an enquiry.
