DRA Electricals was established in October 2009 after I left Barclays Bank - I wanted to do something with my life that was worthwhile and enjoyable, where I could make a difference. In PAT Testing I am educating businesses about the dangers of electrical items and how together we can make going to work safer.
The business was named DRA Electricals and not DRA Pat Testing as originally I wanted to over the whole electrical package but I came to realise there was more potential to build a business and a life around the PAT Testing and so in 2010 I started to focus my efforts purely on PAT Testing. I work primarily in the North East covering areas in and around Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham I have acquired contracts with small businesses and international companies; I list Sanderson Weatherall, Launchpad Homes and Seaham Hall amongst my clients.
My aim is to be the most recommended PAT Testing company in the North East whereby all our work comes from recommendation and repeat clients, as well as through the web. I hope to employ people in the business and be able to manage a business empire.
I have recently started a second business called SEO for Fun which is a little tongue in cheek offering SEO solutions and social media for start ups and other people who either can't be bothered to do it themselves or don't understand - without it costing a fortune. It's SEO on a budget.
