gas-elec is 15 years old!

One of the most successful and fastest growing franchises of its kind in the UK is celebrating 15 years in the business

The gas-elec Group boasts a national network of 18 regional offices, and has remained one of the most respected service companies.

The company excels in providing a comprehensive service for its customers – gas and electrical safety inspections and associated remedial works plus a newly launched handyman franchise for general repairs and maintenance – all of which can be booked in one call.

John Davidson, founder and Managing Director of gas-elec, explains: “I think the secret of our success is that we offer professional, reliable – and unbiased – gas and electrical inspections. One call does it all and our customers have complete peace of mind. That’s what the lettings industry – our primary market – wanted and still wants 15 years on. With more people renting in the UK, our services are needed more than ever so it’s the perfect time to become a gas-elec franchise owner.”

The gas-elec franchise is for individuals with gas experience, and the new g-fix ‘handyman’ general repair and maintenance franchise, is for people with excellent DIY skills. The gas-elec Group is one of only a few companies to give full administrative support to all its franchise owners – from booking appointments, payment collection, credit control and VAT. Without the hassle of paper work, you get to concentrate on building your business.

Franchise owner Jason Davey, who has been with the company for eight years, says: “Having served in the Royal Navy for 23 years, I wanted a change, and gas-elec impressed me, so I decided to go for it and I’ve never looked back.

“I received training on gas appliances and had immediate bookings thanks to the fantastic support of my regional office, which also sorts out all my administration. I download my daily appointments and off I go! If you want independence, high earning potential, with the support of a reputable company, this could be for you.”
