ERF Birmingham Opens its Doors Next Monday

After a few months during lockdown, of being closed, we are very pleased to announce that ERF Electrical Birmingham is opening again, from Monday 19th April.

We took the decision to keep this branch shut until now, as it was our newest branch and we were able to look after our Birmingham customers through all our other branches, which have been open throughout.

This branch at Matrix Point, is a special one due to its spacious and innovative layout. The internal branch area features a glass wall, where customers and staff can see straight into the stores. The stock holding at Birmingham is supported by the ERF West Midlands region with a stock holding of £1m.

Area Manager, Simon Jones said:

‘We are thrilled to be opening the doors to this great branch once again. During the lockdown we have still been getting the kit to our customers, but now we can also be on hand in Birmingham for walk-ins and call and collections. We have stock of all our electrical Essentials products from the catalogue, so no need to worry about whether we have the stock.

If you live in the area and have not been in to see us yet, then pop in and say hello.

We’ve got plenty of parking, stock on the shelves and a friendly team on hand.’

Lucky Sparky Wins his Weight in Chocolate

As you may have seen, we were recently ran a competition to ‘win your weight in chocolate.’ On Tuesday, a lucky winner was selected at random from over 550+ entries, to win his or her weight in the delicious dairy goodness.

Our lucky winner was William Aston, who is a self-employed Electrician from Shrewsbury, trading as WA Electrical.

On finding out he had won, Will said:

‘I am still navigating being new to using social media for my business and didn’t realise that following electrical accounts on Instagram would mean me ending up with so much chocolate! It was a nice surprise.

It’s great of ERF to offer a fun competition and getting the call brightened my day. Andy taking the time to deliver it himself was very much appreciated.

I have received jokes about being sure to turn up on site with chocolate and am hoping that the banter about changing  my name from Will to Willy Wonka doesn’t stick!

Winning has provided some light hearted moments during an uncertain time for small Limited Companies like mine.

I have shared some chocolate with family and other small businesses, as well as making short work of a box of heroes myself!  Regardless of what I decide to do with the rest, a donation will definitely go to the local food bank. ‘

Our very own Managing Director, Andy Laycock, had the special job of delivering the mountain of chocolate to Will and commented:

‘It was a real pleasure to make the call to Will and deliver the good news that he had been chosen as our lucky winner. It was even better to turn up in the ERF truck and reveal the 80kg of chocolate treats that he had won. We hope he enjoys the chocolate and we hear that he plans to keep some for himself but also give some away, which we think is very charitable.’

Will is very kindly choosing to donate some of the chocolate to the local Shrewsbury Food Bank, Barnaba’s Community Projects.
