Celebrating 50 Years of Wingate Electrical Plc

Wingate Electrical Plc are proud to be celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2023. Since 1973, when Ray and Teresa Frewin started the business from their home in Basingstoke, we have grown to an estimated turnover in excess of £56M this financial year. This reinforces our position as the largest provider of Construction Site Services in the UK and Europe, having completed over 20,000 projects since 1973.

Our Building Services Division has also established itself as one of the largest electrical installers of solar farms in the UK.

We have implemented an extensive training regime, employing over 400 apprentices during this time, who are now qualified tradespersons. We continue to work with the next generation to ensure the future of the industry.

We are also proud to have significantly supported many charitable organisations both nationwide and locally, including but not limited to, the fantastic Naomi House and Jacksplace, and the Lighthouse Charity.

Our growth and success would not be possible without the dedication, enthusiasm, expertise and hard work of all of our employees past and present. We appreciate the ongoing support of our supply chain, who have served us fantastically over the years, and all of our clients who continue to entrust the temporary services packages on their projects with us.

We thank you all.

We recently had a day out at Newbury Race Course which was an opportunity for everyone to celebrate our incredible milestone and continued success. It was an absolute pleasure to host our retired chairman, Ray Frewin, without whom there would be no Wingate Electrical Plc.
