What our customers say…

Tata Steel: Turnkey HV & LV cabling installation project

Slaters were able to offer us a full package solution, meaning the co-ordination of the electrical installation aspect of the project has been much simpler, and allowed for a much smoother process. They are flexible and hardworking, and the quality of their work shows in the standard of the installation they have already completed as part of the project.

Cargill Meats: 10 years of continuous support

Their engineers and electricians have grown with us over the decade and are known and trusted. They offer us preventative and reactive maintenance on call-out, such as the case when we had a cable fault and any of the numerous switchgear issues that have caused us loss of power or production. Fitting in with our production schedules, they have also carried out planned maintenance, redirecting HV cables for new production, locating the cables, organising excavations and so on. We stay with them because of the very good service we’ve had over many years.
