Martindale Electric, the leaders in safe isolation, has become a sponsor of SkillELETRIC – the electrical industry’s skills competition.

The firm has agreed to donate eight of its top of the range safe isolation kits to the competition for use in November’s national final at the Skills Show in Birmingham.

The kits will be used as part of the two-day competition, where eight of the UK’s top apprentices will carry out a series of practical tests and tasks based on the workplace scenarios faced by electricians, and will compete to represent the UK at the biennial WorldSkills event – the world’s largest skills competition - in Kazan in 2019. 

Jon Dicken, Technical Development Manager at NET, which is organising SkillELECTRIC 2016 in partnership with WorldSkills, said: “I’m delighted Martindale has agreed to support the final of this year’s competition. Safe Isolation is a crucial element of electrical work and a key skill for any electrician, so I’m grateful to them for enabling us to use their kit during our attempt to find the UK’s best young electrician.”

Steve Dunning, Managing Director at Martindale Electrical, said: “We are very pleased to support good practice in electrical safety and equip tomorrow’s electricians with the tools they will need to enjoy a safe and successful career.  We look forward to an exciting event in Birmingham and future success in the WorldSkills competition.”
