A STOURBRIDGE family-run company is celebrating 15 years in business.

Since it was founded in 2009 by husband-and-wife team Stuart and Lisa Starkey, Starkey Electrical has been providing electrical solutions to the domestic, industrial and commercial sectors across the country.

From its origins around the couple’s dining table to the present day, the award-winning company has developed a strong customer base both regionally and UK-wide and boasts a 10-strong team including electricians and admin staff.

During the pandemic, the firm supported key worker industries such as schools, healthcare providers, food chain providers, logistics, vets and pharmaceutical firms.

And in 2021, Stuart and Lisa set up StarkEV to meet the growing UK demand for EV chargers, installing and supplying them for hotels, spas, holiday lets, caravan parks, car parks and other industrial and commercial premises.

Managing director Stuart said: “It’s incredible to think how far we’ve come in the past 15 years. To celebrate such a milestone is an amazing achievement.

“We may be a small company but we have always prided ourselves on providing outstanding customer service and this has allowed us to not only continue what we do, but grow and expand at the same time.”

Director Lisa added: “Over the last 15 years, we’ve learned that even in a modern world, people still appreciate the personal touch, especially from a family business - that really is our USP.

“The success of our business has enabled us to push boundaries and to get involved with developing other innovative products and services. But ultimately, our priority has always been to build strong relationships with our clients, understanding their unique needs and tailoring our services to their requirements - it’s why we’re proud to have enjoyed long lasting client relationships since the inception of our business 15 years ago.”

The company has also raised almost £12,000 for charities since 2018.
