About Us

D J Mace and Son (Electrical Contractors) Ltd was started in 1977 by David Mace after working for Callas Sons & May within Reading for 20 years. The business grew slowly building a close but loyal customer base, some of whom the company still work with today.

In 1982 the company became members of the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Engineers ( NICEIC) holding ‘Approved Contractor’ status, a position we still hold today.

In 1984 David’s son, Philip, joined as an apprentice and completed a full 5 year apprenticeship becoming a fully qualified Electrician. Philip worked with the company until 1991 when a downturn in the industry dictated he find work elsewhere.

In 2001 Philip rejoined the business having gained a wealth of experience working for a larger company in sales and management. From this point on the company steadily grew and in 2003 David Mace decided to retire from the management of the company and Philip took over. David still works with Phillip, working 3 days a week, keeping his hand in and his passion as an electrician alive. Today the company employs 9 Electricians, an electrical labourer, 5 apprentices and an office manager.

You may even have seen our vans across Berkshire, Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire & London. If you would like to get in touch, please see our contact page.
Many thanks,
David & Philip Mace.
