We are Barlows Electrical a family run electrical retailer with over 60 years’ experience in the electrical industry. The company was established by Thomas Clifford Barlow in 1948
T.C. Barlow started the company as an electrical contracting business and it soon became apparent there was a need for a place for customers to take the new variety of labour saving appliances when they needed repair. Customers would bring repairs to ‘Cliff’s house’ and they were done in the evening after a full day of electrical installation had been completed.
A room in his home became the start of an electrical repair shop and contracting business in the village of Malpas, Cheshire. Since then it has steadily grown into a nationwide contractor who specialize is all aspects of building maintenance including electrical maintenance, alarm systems, appliance testing, domestic appliance repairs, TV and satellite repairs and installation, plumbing, heating and gas servicing, telecommunications, property maintenance & solar panel installation.

The retail section of the business operates with a dedicated team of employees old and new who strive on delivering the best service in the industry. Some of our staff have over 30 years in electrical retailing and our younger members have grown up with amazing technical advances and the ability to simplify and communicate these to customers has provided us with an added dimension.

We have a large warehouse so most of the products we supply are in stock at time of order so we usually get your product out to you within 48 hours. However, if we don’t have your product in stock we will check our suppliers stock at point of sale and give you an indication as to how long your item should take to arrive into us. We can also offer a home delivery service straight from the manufacturer for a small fee.
