About NES

We are NES – electrical contractors based in Inverness and Elgin. We work in the Highlands and the North East of Scotland. And if our clients need us in central Scotland or England, we jump in the van.

We provide the full range of commercial and industrial electrical services, across almost every sector.  

However, it’s fair to say that we’re experts in industrial electrical work – working for big manufacturing and production clients, including Norbord and Diageo.

The rest of our work is in the commercial sector, including schools or offices. And we have a range of specialist services too. We even have an electric motor supply and repair centre.


Why choose NES?

Electrical services are electrical services – right? Ask our customers, and they’ll tell you a slightly different story. It begins with a simple idea: we make it easy for people to choose us.

That means listening – really listening – to what they’re looking to achieve. Only by figuring out what really matters to you and your team can we pinpoint the best answer. At NES, ‘best’ simply means the most efficient way of giving you what you really need.

If the result is a lean, simple solution and smaller bill, that’s exactly what you’ll get.


From 2012 to today

We started with a team of 14 – including our motor repair workshop in a small unit in Elgin. But we didn’t stay small for long. Soon after we opened a second office in Inverness.

The team today? It’s nearly 50-strong – with a huge range of experienced people that includes qualified electricians, project engineers and estimators. We even have our own full-time health and safety manager – something you’d usually only find in a much larger business.

On top of all that, our management processes are accredited to ISO 9001. Further proof that we’re serious about delivering great results for our clients. 

Training and development

How did we end up winning the Select Award for Best Use of Training in 2015?

Because training and development isn’t just something we do – it’s part of our culture.

In early 2015, we rolled out two crucial programmes across the business – ‘Beyond Compliance’ for health and safety, and ‘High Performing People’, our personal development programme. Everyone at NES takes part – from the newest of new starts, to those with a few more grey hairs.

We also work hard to bring new people into the industry – and make sure our clients have access to specialist skills. That’s why we’ve invested heavily to develop new talent – around a quarter of our people are apprentices.
