In 1989, in the midst of the Telecoms industry revolution, WG&R was founded and in 1991 it was established as WG&R Communications Ltd. As we expanded, WG&R moved from its base in a traditional Yorkshire mill to its current location, with extensive storage facilities to accommodate the expanding business.
Advances in cabling standards and desktop devices coupled with the emergence of mobile phones, heralded a change in the way we all worked, and WG&R was there to assist organisations in adapting to this, and continue to offer technology upgrades that now include Wi-Fi, Power over Ethernet and VoIP technology.
An opportunity to expand into the electrical sector to complement the data side meant that in 2002 an electrical division was established and NICEIC Approved Contractor status was achieved. To reflect and encompass the additional services now provided, WG&R changed its name to WG&R UK Limited.
The importance of our employees was recognised early and in 2004 WG&R was awarded the Investors in People accreditation. Our commitment to training and developing our employees, and the recruitment of apprentices has complemented the experience of our team, all governed by the ISO 9001 QMS standards and membership of CHAS.
In 2008 it became apparent that customers required electrical and mechanical services as a package, and so a mechanical division was formed, becoming a REFCOM Elite member and Daikin D1 business partner.
Adapting to the changing world and the services we provided, together with our collaborative approach to working with our customers, ensured that in 2021 WG&R could celebrate 30 years in business.
Going forward we will continue to evolve, providing a nationwide service without compromise. Working alongside our customers to ensure their requirements are the primary consideration from conception to project completion in partnership with our suppliers, and with the support of our employees.
We look forward to welcoming what the next 30 years have in store!
