The electrical safety industry has a new superhero - meet Mr Circuit, who made his debut at the recent Facilities Show at the NEC in Birmingham. His role? To highlight the importance of regular electrical testing processes as an integral part of compliance with fast developing health and safety procedures.
The larger-than-life sized Mr Circuit - brainchild of the management team at Circuit Electrical Testing Ltd - created quite a stir as he made his way around the exhibition. Established in 2007, this family owned and run business has made a real impact in just a few short years, winning major business the length and breadth of the UK in both the public and private sectors.
"With Mr Circuit, we're aiming to give a more accessible face to the electrical testing industry," said Vicky Colbeck, business development manager for Circuit. "Regulations are changing, and increasingly more onus is being placed on the duty holder to establish the regularity of testing regimes. Mr Circuit gives us a voice to use our knowledge and expertise in the field to make recommendations and speak out for the industry."
Mr Circuit reflects Circuit Electrical Testing's own approach to the industry in which it works. "As an independent and privately owned company, we pride ourselves on being very responsive to our customers' needs, with a fast and short decision making process," continued Colbeck. "We focus on using the latest available technology to ensure that our services are fast, relevant and reliable and that data can be uploaded and manipulated to suit our clients' own requirements."
