Over 70+ years of trading
Fairburns has a long and prestigious history. Having first set up in the late 1940s to offer support services, in 1954 the company began trading as an electrical specialist and since then has provided electrical engineering solutions to businesses and public sector organisations far and wide.
Delivering electrical projects to industries as wide-ranging as construction, commercial, marine and manufacturing, we’ve established a strong reputation for electrical services of the highest quality.
Our expansion into mechanical services
In 2012 we acquired Bardale Services, which brought decades of mechanical knowledge into our business. This enabled Fairburns to add heating and plumbing solutions to our service range, allowing a more comprehensive offering to healthcare facilities, schools, marine industry clients and commercial businesses in every sector.
Thanks to our commitment to keeping a finger on the pulse of our clients’ changing requirements and advances in electrical technology, Fairburns has continued to fine-tune, enhance and diversify its electrical and mechanical services, ensuring that excellence, consistency and reliability are integrated at the core of everything we deliver.
Safe, skilled and responsible
All of the engineers and specialists at Fairburns are dedicated to providing the highest quality of service delivery. This includes transparency, safe working practices and invaluable technical expertise to support the smooth running and ongoing growth of your business.
A commitment to environmental sustainability
Fairburns is an environmentally aware company through and through. Rather than simply paying lip service to environmental practices, we help our clients to improve the energy efficiency of their premises and also specialise in the supply and installation of electric vehicle charging points.
If you’re looking to run a more environmentally sustainable business and reduce your carbon footprint, get in touch with our electrical engineers for expert advice and practical recommendations.
