Meet the Real Face of Business

Neil Barber-Smith

NBS Electrical Services Ltd

Who are you?

I am a hands on director of a small dedicated electrical contractor based in Warrington serving domestic and commercial clients across the North West.

How did the business come about?

The business come about as I was sick and tired of working for companies that were driven by profit. For me, it’s about doing a job right first time and getting paid fairly for the work.

How long has your business been in existence?

We’ve been going for 8 years now and nearly all our business comes through word of mouth – we must be doing something right!

How many people do you employ?


Why Warrington?

Warrington is my home town. I’ve always thought it’s a great town which has everything to offer with strong infrastructure and great motorway networks.

Tell us one interesting thing about you that people might not know?

I am also a fully qualified/trained chef.

What job or achievement makes you most proud?

I am most proud of the fact that our customers come back to us. The fact that they would also be happy to recommend us is also a testament to the standard of our work.

Who are the people most important in life to you?

My family and friends are the most important people in my life – especially my wife (who made me write this!)

What is your ‘get through lockdown tip’?

Check-in your family and friends regularly, even your work colleagues – everyones situation is different. Try to be positive and enjoy the slower pace as you’ll be back in the rat race soon enough!
