A fast-growing electrical contractor is relocating after 33 years in its Nottingham headquarters.

Peel Electrical, which offers an expert range of electrical contracting services including Installation, Maintenance and Compliance, is one of the first tenants at the second phase of the Stanton Forge light industrial scheme in Stanton-by-Dale, Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

The company has moved into the 1,400 sq ft Unit 5 at Stanton Forge, in a move which will see it grow and expand as a business.

Russell Peel, Operations Director at Peel Electrical, said: “While it is sad to say goodbye to our Nottingham base for so many years, the new HQ at Stanton Forge helps us present ourselves to existing and potential clients as positively as possible.

“The clean, fresh and vibrant look of the second Stanton Forge is fantastic. The new unit is a blank canvas which allows us complete freedom of design.

“What’s more, the new address is more local to many of our staff, affording them shorter travel times and less spent on fuel.”

Russ said that Peel Electrical will build a mezzanine floor area in Unit 5 for office staff, while downstairs the company will continue the growth of its panel shop within the BMS side of the business. There is also the potential to create more jobs due to the increased floor space, which enables Peel to increase the orders it can take.

NG Chartered Surveyors Managing Director, Richard Sutton, brokered the deal on behalf of the developers and landlords D M Hartshorn Investments, and NG is the exclusive agent on the second phase of Stanton Forge.

Russ added: “Working with the NG Chartered Surveyors team has been excellent. From the original enquiry, multiple site visits and through the completion, Richard and his team were always on hand to answer any questions and queries we had in relation to The Foundry.”

Richard said: “I’d like to welcome Peel Electrical to the second phase of Stanton Forge. Russ and his team are incredibly forward-thinking and they saw right away the benefits of moving to this fantastic scheme would have for the staff and wider business.

“We look forward to announcing more new tenants at Stanton Forge over coming weeks.”
