The Company. Our core Values. Our Beliefs.

PL Taylor Electrical Services is a solely-owned concern, established in 1986. From the early days, the company has worked hard to build its reputation, locally and regionally, as a thoroughly professional organisation. Our growing list of happy customers is a testament to our history of providing a professional and trustworthy service. PL Taylor directly employs all members of staff, ensuring that we can control the quality of our work and fulfill our customer promise, which in turn protects our reputation.

Our hard-earned reputation and the trust and confidence of the people we work with are among our most vital resources, and we protect them fiercely. PL Taylor demands and maintains the highest ethical standards in carrying out its work; we know that’s what our clients want.

Investing in the future

At PL Taylor, we value skilled workmanship and believe in training our staff to the highest standards as an investment in the future. We’re proud to be one of the few companies still offering apprenticeships in the trade. Apprentices carry out a four-year programme, combining theory and practical experience, gained by working alongside our own electricians.

Taylor made

Each new contract brings fresh challenges, but with our vast experience in the electrical field and trained management staff, we can create a custom-made solution for every individual circumstance. No matter how big or small the contract, we treat it in the same professional manner, using our own team to provide the service our clients expect, and PL Taylor demands.
