The Past

Mawdsleys history is built on a sound understanding of the industry, a commitment to adapt and expand, and constant reinvestment.

Formally Bristol Electrical Repairs, founded in 1959 specialised in rewinding and repairing AC and DC Motors, transformers and special equipment up to 500hp.

With an increase in contracts from heavy industry (including milling and quarrying), Bristol Electrical Repair found themselves short of space and in 1961 they relocated to Barton Manor.

In 1999, Bristol Electrical Repair was approached by Messrs Mawdsleys, and negotiations were started. Meessrs Mawdsleys purchased the trade customer list, the machinery tools and stock, under the company name of Mawdsleys.  The takeover was completed in February 2000.

We have been established as Mawdsleys BER Ltd. since February 2004, providing electrical, mechanical and electronic engineering services which cover repair, maintenance and supply.

Our future direction can be summed up in four words: “Invest in the future”.

It is vitally important to us to be equipped for the next generation.

We need to develop and encourage potential talent as well as ensuring that we have the staff and skills to continue providing an excellent service for our customers.

Over the last two years we have invested heavily in our premises, overhauling the original workshop and leasing a new premises that now operates as a machine shop all on the same site.

Our philosophy is to reinvest to ensure we remain at the forefront of our industry. We want to be able to continue giving our customers the best service and products, and ensure that our already well-established reputation for reliability goes from strength to strength.
