Two friends with over thirty years combined experience in the electrical industry are expanding their business across and creating jobs in Teesside.
Electricians Lee Stewart and Barry Swainston set up S & S Electrics in Stockton in 2015, working predominantly on local domestic jobs before investing in sales and marketing to grow the business across the North East.
Enlisting the help of award-winning digital marketing agency Espresso Web to better market its services, S & S Electrics has expanded its reach and built on its domestic success with larger commercial projects and new build developments.
Lee said: “We pride ourselves on the standard of work we do and our reputation, on the back of which we have seen our workload grow across the Teesside area. We are at the point now where we are looking to take on staff to manage the amount of domestic work we have – services like rewires, repairs, maintenance and PAT testing, all the areas where we excel.
“We want to expand further and in time grow S & S to have a team of electricians working throughout the North East, which is why we have asked Espresso Web to help us strengthen our brand and presence.”
S & S Electrics recently worked on the new trampoline park at Royal Quays, North Tyneside, and is currently on site with John King Construction at a new housing development in Nunthorpe.
Digital experts at Middlesbrough-based Espresso Web have rebuilt a responsive website for S & S Electrics, targeting electrical services in the Teesside area.
Sales director Greg Langstaff said: “So many great small businesses struggle because potential customers don’t know they exist.
“Lee and Barry recognise the importance of getting their name out there, appearing at the top of search engine hits and having a strong website to support their work, and as a result have seen a huge uplift in visitor numbers and online enquiries.”
S & S Electrics is just one of many success stories for growing digital agency Espresso Web, which in February announced it was creating 20 new jobs at its head office on Riverside Park Road.
In the past few weeks the firm has recruited two new account managers, Antony Grimley and Andrew Palmer, as well marketing consultant Lyndsey Cormack and apprentice Natassja Bartman.
Director Stephen Robinson said: “Sales are booming and our services are in demand; we have a great team of web developers, graphic designers and creative writers working here and it is continually expanding.”
