About Us

A Powerful Scottish Enterprise

An Electrical Company Born of Demand

A Growing Range of Electrical Services

SWL Electrical started as an aside, operated to complement the activities of the SWL (Safety, Welding & Lifting) group which offers its goods and services to companies in Scotland and beyond. Winning an electrical contract with the Highland Council in its early days, however, was the catalyst that turned SWL Electrical into a worthy enterprise in its own right, meeting the demand to take on electrical contracts for all sorts of property owners.

SWL Electrical is managed by Grant Robertson. With 17 years in the trade, he believes an important part of what we do at SWL is delivering electrical safety to a high standard, particularly when it comes to upgrading businesses or rental properties to bring them into line with regulations and make them safer to occupy.

The extent of our services, and the size of our staff, continues to grow as we serve clients in all corners of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. We are currently in high demand for the installation of electric vehicle charging points, especially along the North Coast 500 highway.

Our Expert Team

Approved, Accredited and Qualified

You’d go a long way to find an electrical company and staff complement with higher credentials than those at SWL Electrical.

We’re proud to say that not only are we NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting) approved and regularly assessed, but we’re also CHAS (Contractor Health and Safety) compliant, members of SELECT (Scottish electrical trade association) and the British Fire Consortium.

Our electricians are 18th Edition professionally trained with various safety certifications as well. All our engineers are IATP (Independent Asbestos Training Provider) certified to carry out non-licensed work with asbestos, which is still found on old distribution boards and needs to be removed and disposed of.

We’re IPAF members (International Powered Access Federation) and PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers Manufacturers Association) certificated so we can work safely and effectively at height. 

We have been appointed expert installers by Aico, the market leading manufacturers of smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as approved installers of Rointe energy-saving electric heating solutions.

High Safety Standards

A Dependable Electrical Service for the Highlands

Our manager, Grant Robertson, is passionate about electrical safety, but he is also a stickler for customer service.

Serving a relatively small community in the Scottish Highlands as far as population density goes, Grant knows how important it is to develop a good relationship with all clients, from private home-owners to the heads of local businesses.

SWL Electrical treats all customers like friends, with loyalty and respect. You can trust us to be open, honest and reliable.

Our prices are fair and we believe in offering good value, so there’s no stinting on the quality of our workmanship or materials.

We are a forward-thinking company who plan to continue expanding our repertoire of electrical services as we grow steadily, providing job opportunities for young, local talent and an efficient, dependable electrical service for all who live and work in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland.
