Life begins at 40
Aberdeenshire business Hosie Electrical is celebrating 40 years as a Member of SELECT with a focus on the local community and a new branded electric vehicle
Aberdeenshire business Hosie Electrical recently marked a landmark achievement – 40 years as a Member of SELECT.
The firm, which is based in Inverurie, near Aberdeen, took to social media to celebrate joining the association on 25 November 1981.
Richard Blundell, Managing Director, said: “We’re proud to have been a Member of SELECT for 40 years. The association is great for technical support and practical answers from practical people and it’s always a pleasure to speak to staff who genuinely want to help.
“We also regularly take part in SELECT training, which has been of huge use, particularly with the development of new technology. We’ve found that we’re installing an increasing number of electric vehicle (EV) charge points and photovoltaic panels”.
To help mark the anniversary, SELECT presented the firm with a special CABLEtalk cover and created an animated social media celebration.
Established in 1961, Hosie Electrical provides services ranging from domestic and commercial installations and electric heating to heat and smoke alarms, electrical installation condition report (EICR) and PAT testing and emergency lighting. Employing a team of 25 people, more than half of Hosie’s electricians have more than 10 years’ service, and it also has five apprentices in its ranks.
The company recently introduced its first EV, complete with livery featuring the slogan ‘Think, choose, support local’.
Richard said: “We’re a big believer in having close ties to the community and we’re looking forward to delivering local services for the next 40 years – with SELECT by our side of course!”
