Cable Services donates over £50,000 to local charities

The "Cable Service Group Charity Fund (Charity Reg No: 1179915) - Making a difference in our local communities" was set up almost 3 years ago with the intention to benefit all those communities’ in which we have our branches: Wrexham, Swindon, Stone, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Following a successful year in 2019, both the company and employees are proud to announce from their efforts over the year, a total sum of £52,000 has been donated to our chosen charities.

Throughout 2019, the staff members across our 5 branches have being doing various activities to raise funds for our charities, these include Charity Quiz Night, Bake Day, Raffles as well as our 150 Club which brings in money every month.

Huw Evans: Marketing Manager "This year, we wanted to split the proceeds in a slightly different way. As well as supporting our principle charities at each branch, the charity committee asked fellow employees to select a few smaller charities in each community, so we were able to benefit not only the hospices but the smaller charities who certainly need funding as much as the large ones"

See below a list of the charities which will benefit from our donations for 2020:

  • Rainbow Centre
  • Lauren Brown Appeal
  • Deva Centre
  • Nightingale House Hospice
  • Pennyhooks Farm
  • A Child of Mine
  • House of Bread
  • Douglas Macmillan Hospice
  • Emmaus Glasgow
  • Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice
  • Open Door Centre

Proud to be part of a historic project – The NEW Forth Bridge Crossing!

Cable Services are the UK’s number one specialist electrical distributor. We supply a wide range of cable and cable accessories to the domestic and international markets from our branch locations in Wrexham, Liverpool, Stone, Swindon, and Glasgow.

We have very close relationships with our key manufacturers, which enabled us to be part of the network of suppliers who contributed in the success of building the NEW Forth Bridge Crossing.

Smith Electrical - Part of the Cable Services Group, was ideally situated to support the build of the NEW Crossing, with product management and the supply of materials from our Glasgow branch.

We delivered the following sourced from our key partners:

Roxtec supplied environmental seals to help maintain a controlled environment by stopping weather ingress. There was a requirement to seal sections along the bridge to stop condensation forming alongside each section. A bespoke seal was designed to reduce the amount of welding required for fixing. Roxtec solutions are more than a firestop, they protect against multiple risks such as water, gas, and rodents.

Prysmian Group were delighted to supply their range of low smoke zero halogen and fire retardant joints for such a prestigious project. The joints were chosen for the installation due to the conditions, that they were going to be subjected within the box sections of the bridge for several years. 

Aquilar, a leak detection provider, first quoted for the project back in 2010, with the client brief specifying that the Raychem TraceTek leak detection cable be laid along the entire length of the water supply pipe within the bridge deck cell. In total, Aquilar supplied 3.5km of Raychem TraceTek TT1100 sensing cable; chosen for its ability to detect the presence of water at any point along its length. Smith Electrical, completed the installation of the Raychem TraceTek leak detection system late last year.

With the support of Pentair Technical Solutions (UK) Ltd - Smith Electrical designed, installed and commissioned 3.5Km of Raychem Pipe Frost Protection Trace Heating Cable with Raystat Control-10 energy efficient controllers, along the entire length of the water supply pipe within the bridge deck cell feeding 18off Water Bib taps spaced out along the bridge deck. specialist electrical distributors
