Electrical Times has been at the forefront of UK electrical contracting for more than a century. Today, its success is attributable to one factor – RESULTS. Results in terms of advertising and marketing, and results in terms of the unrivalled quality of its editorial. Contact Nathon Woodhead for more advertising details on

Electrical Times delivers outstanding results for our advertisers because we continually work to reflect the needs and requirements of the market. We listen and then develop our content so that it is always relevant and trusted by the largest number of decision makers, of any audited controlled circulation publication in the UK electrical contracting sector.

Electrical Times is widely read by contractors, project engineers and wholesalers and is an essential read for everyone in the construction industry's specifying chain.

Electrical Times is proud to be a campaigning journal that leads, rather than reflects, industry opinion.
