Electrical contractors, Hall & Hedderman, was founded in 1997 by two driven young electricians who did their apprenticeships together, Geoff Hall and Slade Hedderman. Recognising that they had the same work ethic and the same values, they set out to build an electrical contracting company that delivered on its promises, maintaining integrity in all their business dealings and giving genuine personal service to their Clients.

As the scale of the jobs became bigger and the installations more sophisticated, Geoff and Slade met George Nikols, the award-winning market leader in Audio-visual and Automation systems. With shared values and the same determination to do the best quality work for their customers, George joined Hall & Hedderman in 2009. Together, they created the sister company, Suite Control, which has gone on to win more awards for Home Entertainment and Hotel Automation systems.

As Geoff Hall says,

“George, Slade and I could probably be making more money working for someone else and it would be a lot less demanding. But for us, growing the company has always been about much more than money. We love the challenge of building things and making them work really well. That love of making things work and delivering projects successfully is what drives us. And we bring that level of commitment to every job for every customer.”

These values have been the driving force that has created the growth of the company – a growth that has taken them from a team of two up to a staff of over thirty. The fact that Geoff, George and Slade have worked their way up through the ranks from tradesmen to being full-time Directors of the company means that they have seen every aspect of the business, from the hands-on installation to project management, estimating and accounting. They know how each job works and are completely realistic about what can be achieved, making sure that their Clients are kept fully informed about any issues that may arise.

Being honest and upfront with their Clients is a core value for Geoff, Slade and George. They also firmly believe that delivering a great level of service at a fair price is how businesses grow and thrive. Their intention is that every Client will be so happy with the work the company does that they become a customer for life.
