About

Barlows UK Ltd is a family run business, established in 1948 by Thomas Clifford Barlow.

The business started life in 1948 as a small electrical repair shop in the village of Malpas in Cheshire. The company has steadily grown over the years and now has a Head Office in Malpas and regional offices in Manchester, High Wycombe and Lancaster, offering a full range of electrical services. Barlows (UK) Ltd has expanded significantly in order to meet with customer demand and now offers a full range of property maintenance services.  There are three high street appliance retail outlets, one remaining in Malpas and the others in the Shropshire market towns of Whitchurch and Ellesmere. Our company now has 400 directly employed staff and a fleet of 250 vehicles!

Our regional offices in Chadderton, Manchester and more recently High Wycombe and Lancaster, continue to build upon the original Barlows foundations to form a strong nationwide client base across all sectors, becoming a trusted partner for many social housing organisations, local councils and building contractors.  Continued demand for our services has led to a requirement for a further branch office in Lancaster, opening in April.

As a company, we have continued to grow in the maintenance sector by providing housing associations and our commercial partners with quick reactive maintenance. Our electrical contracting divisions carry out a wide scope of work ranging from small alterations or rewires for domestic customers to full design and installation of public houses and commercial premises for building contractors. We provide detailed and independent NICEIC condition reports of electrical installations and can then bring your electrical installation up to the current wiring regulations, whether electrical remedial works or a complete electrical rewire is required.  We can provide a bespoke compliance programme for clients who manage a number of properties.

Our technical services engineers carry out the installation and repair of access control, fire and security alarm installations and electrical boiler systems making Barlows a one stop shop for technical solutions. Other services provided include solar PV energy, aerial installations and data, appliance repairs and telecommunications projects.

Barlows can also provide you with heating, plumbing and property maintenance experts.

We are renowned for our customer care and technical expertise and look forward to continuing our growth and expansion for the next 70 years and beyond.
