AR Daniels & Company (Cheltenham) Ltd was formed in1966. Its founder Albert Reginald Daniels had been trading as an electrical contractor and later electrical goods retailer since the late 1940’s.
Both aspects of the business, contracting and retailing, had grown to a modest size and in 1966 the decision was made to operate as a stand alone business in their own right. The original company AR Daniels & Co Ltd became the retail arm of the business and continues to trade to this day providing high quality entertainment equipment and service.
The electrical contracting business was renamed AR Daniels & Co (Cheltenham) Ltd and was incorporated at Companies House on6th April 1966. The company’s main area of activity was to provide high quality electrical services to the local authority, Gloucestershire County Council.
Major projects undertaken in those early days were new schools, police stations and fire/ambulance stations. The relationship with Gloucestershire County Council has continued to this day with the work being carried out for the local authority forming a very important part of our present activities.
The company was run by the Daniels family until 1997 when it was bought by its present owners. Albert Daniel’s business had gained a reputation for providing high quality electrical services at a competitive price and the new owners were keen to carry on the tradition.
The company's area of activities has traditionally been very strong in Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties. To meet the require-ments of our clients the area of activity has grown to include all of the UK. Projects have been undertaken as far north as the Orkney Isles and as far south as the Channel Isles.
OUR AIM - to provide a service that lets the client relax in the knowledge that we can undertake their projects and deliver a quality installation, on time and at a competitive price.
