An expanding Staffordshire electrician rowed to the rescue when a busy boatyard requested a complete electrical rewire.

Award winning Day & Knight is taking on bigger projects after taking on two members of staff.

Extra capacity meant owner David Knight was ready to climb on board when the Anglo Welsh Boatyard at Great Haywood needed a major electrical overhaul.

“The office needed a complete rewire and we were also able to recommend and fit outdoor LED security floodlighting which has both improved security and saved money, due to better efficiency costs,” said David.

“Anglo Welsh is a busy company, hiring out narrowboats for day trips and holidays and we had to work around a busy office.”

Kevin Yarwood, of Anglo Welsh, said: “It has been a busy year, with no quiet times, as the popularity of narrowboat holidays and so-called staycations, in the UK, are growing.

“We recognised we needed to have the electrics rewired and the circuit boards were a bit like a spider’s web having been added to several times.

“Day and Knight drew up a full electrical plan. We now have a single, tidy circuit board and new sockets and a very efficient outdoor lighting system.

“We were very impressed with how Day and Knight worked around boatyard operations with the minimum of disruption.”

Day and Knight Electrical Solutions were runners-up in the prestigious Trusted Trader of the Year Award, run by national consumer watchdogs, Which?, in 2016.

Based in Brocton, Stafford, Day & Knight was founded by David in 2003. The current year has seen expansion and this has led to more commercial work being taken on alongside domestic electrical jobs.
