JRP Electrical Services refurbishes new Rugby premises

JRP Electrical Services has fully refurbished its new Rugby HQ with support from the Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Hub, as it looks to fulfil a seven-figure order book.

Established in 2011, the firm specialises in industrial, commercial, and domestic electrical installations across the UK, including renewable solutions such as solar and battery storage.

The 30-strong team transferred to the current site on Somers Road last year, after outgrowing their previous Rugby home on Earl Street. But work was required to bring the new premises up to scratch, which the company could not fund alone.

Managing Director James Park said: “It was an empty shell and a building site which was in need of a complete fit-out. Having invested in buying the premises, I contacted the Growth Hub about any possible grants to prevent putting any further pressure on our cash flow.

“The refurbishment has completely transformed our new home and we have already taken on two new staff and hope to add another seven later this year.”

JRP Electrical Services successfully secured a grant of £13,729 through the Coventry and Warwickshire Business Support Programme, financed in part by the European Regional Development Fund. The approach was recommended by Adam Plumb from the Growth Hub, who referred the team to Kierandeep Bal of Coventry City Council.

The money, coupled with a further £67,000 invested by the company, went towards painting and redecorating, as well as the installation of air conditioning, electrics, flooring, signage, and security. The office was now fit for purpose.

James added: “We hope that by moving to a larger property we will be able to increase our turnover in the next few years with increased sales and employing a renewable energy designer to speed up designs and quotes which, if successful, will mean we can employ more electricians and apprentices and sub-contract local scaffolders and roofers.

“The support from the Growth Hub and Coventry City Council has been excellent and everything was explained every step of the way and without this support, it would have delayed the refurbishment. Our current order book is around £3 million and the additional space, equipment and staff will help the business to take the next step.”
