Takeover Sparking Growth for City Electrical Business

Merlx Electrical – Biggest deal comes a year after acquisition

Merlx has marked its first anniversary 28th September 2016 following its takeover by embarking on a housing renovation project, which is the biggest contract in its history.

Merlx, which is based in Williamson Street, east Hull, is working on improvements to more than 300 homes in the Preston Road area of the city, having been appointed by the main contractor Willmott Dixon.

Chris Fawley, who completed the acquisition of Merlx in September last year and is now the company’s electrical services director, said the year has brought consolidation followed by expansion in the commercial and residential property sectors.

His first step was to change the status of his workforce from sub-contractors to employees, including a dedicated fire alarm and emergency lighting specialist.

Mr Fawley said: “We wanted to employ people ourselves. It makes the overheads a bit higher but we were confident we could keep everybody busy and that has certainly been the case.”

The work at Preston Road is part of a £35m contract awarded to Willmott Dixon by Hull City Council to improve more than 2,000 homes across the city.

The current phase, which will be completed early next year, involves recladding the properties to retain the heat and improve the look.

Mr Fawley said: “Our part of the job is to remove any electrical fittings from the outside of the properties and put them back again afterwards. The houses are all occupied, which means we have to be sensitive to the routines of the people who live there. We started our work in September and it will run into next year.
I did some work for Willmott Dixon years ago and they have approached us for this.

 

Smith & Nephew Hull, Install & termination of 2 x 240mm XPLE cables.

2. October, 2016|News|Comments Off on Smith & Nephew Hull, Install & termination of 2 x 240mm XPLE cables.

2 of the biggest XLPE cables installed by Merlx Electrical this week for Smith & Nephew Hull, we pulled in 2 x 240mm XLPE cables to replace old supplies for Chiller units due to relocation of the plant room due following refurbishment of the site. The plant room panel had new breakers installed, we had to manufacture and install a spreader box due to size of the cables which bolted onto the panel to allow our cables to be terminated and connected, not a easy install.

Challenging rewire of a Old Farm house near Beverley

We just completed a challenging rewire of a old farmhouse The Chestnuts Beverley Hull. New owners Mr & Mrs Mace asked Merlx to rewire the property however we have a deadline to meet of which is unusual. Mrs Mace is due to give birth in few weeks we have to be in and out of the property before the birth and have plasters etc following on after our works is completed. No room for error with this rewire. Its made even more challenging after we got up floor boards, to discover the beams in the property are oak drilling thro the beams to pass cables thro is hard work.

Merlx Electrical Under New Ownership

23. October, 2015|News|Comments Off on Merlx Electrical Under New Ownership

A major expansion programme is underway at Merlx Electrical as our new owner, Chris Fawley takes the helm.

Chris has built electrical businesses for companies throughout Yorkshire over the last thirty years and has drawn up a five-year plan to double the size of Merlx within the current premises on Williamson Street, off Holderness Road in Hull.

The strategy is to expand the commercial client base while continuing to provide services to domestic clients.

Tony Douglass who founded Merlx in 2004 is pursuing an interest in property development and refurbishment which had become a significant operation within Merlx.

Chris says:

“I spent many years working for other people and had reached the stage where I wanted to do it for myself. I looked at a number of businesses around Yorkshire and Merlx was attractive due to its prospects and the current climate in Hull.

The message to our customers is that it is business as usual – there will be no difference in the way we work and all customers will continue to receive our service which is always carried out to the highest possible standard.

I would like to wish Tony well in his future business and know that he will have the same success he has enjoyed with Merlx. He has provided the best possible foundation on which our team will continue to build.”
