01 Sep Celebrating Our 20th Year In Business!
September 2020 marks an important milestone for Craven Electrical. We are starting our 20th year in business! Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, suppliers and business connections generally who we have worked with over the years. You have been a crucial part of our development as a company. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today. You have helped us acquire a wealth of knowledge and experience which is growing and improving to this day. Craven understands the importance of creating and maintaining close relationships because it’s our shared values and mutual respect that helps to drive our business, and yours, in the right direction.
Craven Electrical is a company that closely supports our customers, but also our employees. What started as a one man company, now employs many more people, whose hard work is significantly appreciated. Darren Mason founded the company in 2001 from his modest office. Working around the clock hours, from his own home, he transformed a mediocre business that payed the bills into a much more impressive company. He’s provided opportunities for these employees to strive in a fast-paced but supportive environment, where they have learnt many new skills and built on existing, that have been put to good use whilst working here at Craven. Not only this, but if Craven employees lacked knowledge in any particular areas, Darren has provided sufficient training courses to get the team up to standard. There’s always room to learn! Craven has a strong professional and personal bond with its employees. We work together and help one another, no matter how tough business may be!
Craven began with Darren’s vision to provide reasonably priced electrical products to the industry, while not compromising the quality. At Craven, price and quality go hand in hand. Items may be cheaper elsewhere but are they of the same quality? Today, Craven electrical is a leading supplier of electrical components to a wide range of companies throughout the UK. We are a distributor for lots of globally recognised brands such as Mitsubishi Electric, Carlo Gavazzi, and Murr Elektronik – just to name a few. We have a wide range of products from Sensors to PLCs, Drives and HMIs etc. As well as this, we can source obsolete parts and one-off specialised products from countries like Japan. In all, we pride ourselves on our outstanding quality products whilst being able to provide competitive prices at the same time. You know you can rely on Craven to supply the parts you need quickly and at an affordable price.
It goes without saying that there’s been a few obstacles along the way. Whether it be the impact of 9/11 (when Craven had only just launched as a company), the economic recessions of 2008 and 2009 or the most recent Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The COVID-19 pandemic in particular took us by surprise and these are definitely uncertain times for us all. But as a company, we have strived to overcome such problems. So what’s next for Craven Electrical you ask? After a successful 19 years, we are still looking to expand and improve the company in any way we can. As mentioned, we’ve faced some challenging times and we’re sure there’s more to come. But together as a team, we feel prepared to tackle any more problems headed our way and we’re looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish in the years to come. As a whole, thank you for keeping us in business and being a part of our journey thus far. Hopefully, you will want to be a part of our future going forward. Here’s to the next successful chapter!
