As a smaller company our business is built on our reputation and happy customers returning to us and spreading the word to friends and family are absolutely vital to us. 

You can read some of our customer reviews below or many more on our check a trade page.


We are a three man team consisting of Tom, Edvin and Harry. 

I (Tom Stephens) am the founder of the company and have been working in the electrical industry for over half my life since starting my apprenticeship at the age of 17 back in 2001. 

Since qualifying I worked mainly as a self employed subcontractor for many years whilst doing bits and pieces of private work. In 2016 I decided the time was right to push forward and get more of my own jobs so formed Resistance Electrical. Since then the company has grown steadily and I’ve never looked back.

Even after all this time I have a great passion for my work, truth be told I’m a bit of an electrical nerd! I enjoy keeping up-to-date with the latest innovations and regulations which also ensures I can offer my customers the most cutting edge products and services. 

Edvin has been working with me since 2016 and was trained by me directly. He has been there since Resistance Electrical was formed and I couldn’t have done it without his help and support. 

Harry is our newest member of the team having joined in 2018 and is currently being trained by Edvin an I. He is undertaking his apprenticeship and is well on the path to becoming a qualified sparky.

I genuinely couldn’t hope for a better couple of guys to be working with, they both have my full trust and as they have been along for the ride whilst the business grew they both care about the company and have never let me down.  Having trained them in house I know they work to the same standards I do and share the same values around workmanship and customer service.  





We are members of the electrical governing body STROMA which means we have our insurances, qualifications and standard of work checked regularly to make sure everything is up to date and that we are working to the highest standards and latest regulations. This gives you all the assurances and fallbacks you would expect from a big company whilst benefiting from the personal service you can only get from a small one.
