ELECSA Spark Crowned the Best in the UK

Release Date: 16/12/2015

An electrician from Newcastle has beaten thousands of tradespeople to take the coveted title of ‘Britain’s Top Tradesperson’ 2015 – a competition organised by Screwfix.

Darren, who trades under the name North East Electricals, set up his company three years ago after deciding that he wanted to provide a better service for customers.



The ELECSA registered spark impressed a panel of judges in the final with other tradespeople at Wembley Stadium.

“I couldn’t believe it when I got the call saying I had won” said Darren. “During my interview with the judges, I had to prove I really know my stuff and was asked about qualifications, quality of work and the way I run my business.

“I set up the business after starting a family. I knew that if I was to keep it going successfully I’d need to provide excellent customer service. I’ve taken on a lad who also had a young family to support, and together we’ve made a great success of things.

“I’m really proud that I have been named Britain’s Top Tradesperson and my kids think it’s great that daddy has been in the newspaper!”

Darren is the first electrician to win Britain’s Top Tradesperson in the six year history of the competition.
