Scatchards is a family-run business with over 30 years’ experience in the electrical industry. The owner, Mike Scatchard, has been a fully qualified electrician for 25 years.

From our base near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, we undertake all manner of electrical work across the North Yorkshire area, covering the industrial, commercial and domestic sectors. 

We are proud of our long history in delivering a quality electrical service to home-owners, farmers, businesses and industrial customers across North Yorkshire.

From a very early age, and well before leaving school, Mike grew up immersed in the family building business where he acquired extensive knowledge and logic of the building, plumbing and electrical trades. Most weekends were spent working with his Dad and the highly skilled tradesmen on building sites. Mike recalls wiring his first house at age 12!  

After completing his electrical apprenticeship, Mike joined his parents in the family business, which then traded as Scatchards Builders and Electrical Contractors. Scatchards Builders ceased with his Father’s retirement, but the wealth of experience gained from that time still carries forward in the business today.

We are also listed in the Electrical Safety Register list of approved contractors, and a member of the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
