The opening on Thursday 23rd June was a great success, with the new branch being officially opened by the Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Gordon Jackson and his wife Mayoress Sue Jackson.
There was a fabulous turnout that made for a buzzing atmosphere with many electricians and contractors attending the trade day, enjoying some delicious food and talking to innovative suppliers that were there.
There was lots of activity during the day, with Kewtech offering discounted meter calibrations to all electricians. Alongside the discounted calibration, Nest, Snickers Workwear, Hamilton, BEG, Robus and Armeg all took part in the day and talked about new innovative products available to the marketplace.
Reinforcing the importance of small businesses to local communities, Derek Carr from the Federation of Small Businesses came along to give support to the event.
‘The FSB is proud to support local business,’ said Carr. ‘We are delighted to see the work BEW Guildford is doing to support local electricians and contractors.’
Enjoying the bustling atmosphere, James Blason, BEW Guildford branch manager, was clearly delighted with the day and said, ‘Great to be part of such a successful trade day. Thank you to everyone who has supported the day. Great to see so many customers both old and new.’
