Early History

Based within the village of Cheslyn Hay since its beginning in 1967, David Paradine (Electrical) Ltd was originally formed as a partnership between directors David Paradine and Desmond Clemson trading under the name of Paraclem. 

When the partnership ended in 1973, the company underwent a name change but continued to operate from its original site maintaining a strong association with the local community.

With a heavy focus on high quality industrial work, the company aligned itself as a major provider of electrical services to such companies as Lucas Industries and Ellison Switchgear to name but a few. Although industrial work may no longer be the dominant sector of our business we still provide services to some of the very same sites.

David Paradine retired from the business in 2006 and handed it over to his sons David and James. With a movement away from our traditional industrial activities we soon became specialists within the Healthcare sector carrying our works to BS7671 and HTM Standards. Healthcare and Education have been important to our business during the recessions and through careful planning and commitment to employees the company has grown steadily over the years whilst maintaining the core principles of a family run business. We’re immensely proud to support the local community and with a regional focus towards our customers and supply chain we look engage our dedicated supply chain regularly.

We still operate within the same site and whilst the company originally started within a small building now used for archives; the company is now based within a self contained compound and a modern office environment.
