The EESI Story

Based in Stonehouse, EESI Group Services is a leading provider of specialist building services, including electrical installations, fire and security systems, air conditioning, heating and ventilation, data cable networking, technical testing and 24/7 support.

The company was founded in 1994 by Mike Gardiner. Derek Jarman, who is the Managing Director, has been with EESI since day one and many others on the workforce have also been on the payroll for many years.

Staying loyal to their core values and continuity of staff are key to the excellent reputation EESI has for customer service, as Mike Gardiner explained.

“Right from the start we’ve had a customer-first approach to business. I’m very proud of the fact that we have long standing relationships with our clients and that the majority of new business comes to us from personal recommendations”.

EESI evolved from a single office on the Stroudwater Business Centre to now operate out of 11 offices over 2 floors. Originally EESI operated solely as an electrical contractor. Early successes meant that expansion into larger and larger units followed as the range of services offered increased.

Several years ago, to reflect the changes in the way the business was moving Mike decided to put in place a programmed diversification of services to be offered to all of EESI’s clients.

“Although our core business is still the design and installation of electrical and mechanical systems in the industrial and commercial sectors, by adding complementary services to our clients across the country this cross selling has enabled the company to continue to grow to the size it is today” said Mike.

EESI currently service clients throughout Stonehouse, Stroud, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Bristol, Swindon and Bath as well as nationally.
