ARC Electrical are Back in Bidford (update: apprenticeship position now taken)

By Amy James, The Connection Magazine

Since they were established in 2005, ARC Electrical has been providing Bidford on Avon and surrounding areas with first class electrical services. Paul Hopcraft, local Bidford resident and founder of the company, now has 20 years of experience in the trade after undertaking an apprenticeship straight from school at the age of 16. Now he’s keen to offer a similar opportunity to another local youngster studying electrics at college and seeking to start their own career in the field.

The chosen apprentice will join a friendly team of 4 electricians (including Paul) and 1 electrician’s mate, as well as the efficient office team that deals with day-to-day administration and organisation of the business.

Presently based in Salford Priors, ARC Electrical are working hard to get ready for their official opening on 1st October at Unit 9, Smallbrook Business Centre off Waterlook Road in Bidford-on-Avon, where they’re excited to have new office and stores space for the growing business.

It’s been a hectic few weeks, as they also have their regular work continuing as normal. ARC carry out both domestic and commercial work, and as well as the usual rewires, fuseboard upgrades, inside and outside lighting, they’ve recently been involved with installing electric car charging stations and CCTV installations too (they are the recommended installer of CCTV by CCTV Kits – another Bidford-based company).

Always planning ahead for the next project, Paul is keen to encourage potential customers to get in touch for a free quote. You can see pictures of their extensive portfolio of work and expertise on their website. Just visit

They are also Trustmark registered and a member of Checkatrade, so why not give them a call now for your next electrical project?  To contact the team for a quote, please contact Paul Hopcraft on 01789 490972 or 07796 990309.
