Kitchen electrics flat Southend

Over 30 years of combined experience & expertise

Phoenix Electrical was founded over 20 years ago, in Southend on Sea, Essex, by Lawson and Nikki. Lawson has been in the electrical industry for more than 25 years. We began as a small electrical contractor with Lawson as its only electrician, working from a home-based office. During this time our work was mainly in domestic electrics.

Since then the company has grown year on year and we now have several full-time teams including another six fully qualified electricians, three electrician’s mates and two full and one part time office staff. If a project calls for it we are able to bring in sub-contractors/sub-contractor teams in where necessary.

We opened our Maldon office in March 2020, covering North Essex and the East of England. We undertake commercial electrical work alongside the domestic and have undertaken several large projects for clients. We offer a wide range of services alongside our domestic and commercial electrics including electric heating systems, fire alarm systems, smoke control systems and emergency lighting, CCTV and access control.


We are ECA registered electrical contractors, approved NICEIC electrical contractors, NICEIC Part P registered domestic electricians and are fully insured.
