Powering the Island for nearly 50 years.
When Smail and Richards was founded nearly 50 years ago, customers chose us for our personalized service, unmatched expertise and honest work. While the world has changed a lot in the last 50 years, our relationships with our customers haven’t budged one bit. Our electrical business is built on our more than 50 years of experience, loyalty, honesty and integrity.
We pride ourselves in the fact that most new jobs are referred to us through word of mouth, after a friend or relative has a great experience.
What We Do
No project is too small, complex, or simple for the Smail and Richards team. We specialise in offering updates and installations that help to increase safety, productivity and quality of life.
