Our Company

Gilks have provided electrical and mechanical installation, maintenance, test and inspection services to customers nationally since 1962, and we’ve built a solid reputation based on trust and innovation. Our contracted work extends to NHS sites, schools, care homes and even military bases, and although our client base is extensive, we’re proud to say that we’re still small enough to care.

We’ve never lost sight of the importance of the collaborative efforts of our team that drives our business forward. That’s why a career with us is a two-way relationship: we reward talented people, and our high staff retention is testimony to how we value each employee.

We invest significantly into training and developing both new and experienced talent. We offer apprenticeship schemes, delivered in partnership with local colleges and reputable training organisations.
