A team of five time-served qualified electricians are running the new arm which provides electrical work alongside the blown fibre optic cable service Networx3 provides to customers in the civil service, utilities and green energy sectors.

Networx3 has just been awarded NAPIT accreditation which demonstrates compliance and competence in the electrical services industry.

The new NAPIT badge means that Networx3 now offer a turnkey solution to clients who are installing blown fibre optic cable telecommunications systems.

Networx3 UAV founder and managing director Ian Ashworth said: “This solves a headache for our clients because so much of what we do in telecoms has an electrical element to it – every cabinet we’re feeding cables into has electricity to it and there is often a need to install or upgrade sockets or ports as we go.

“This service complements what Networx3 already provides for clients and is a specialist addition to what we have to offer. It stops delays, makes work seamless and fits in nicely with installations we are already doing in comms rooms, commercial premises and electricity cabinets.

“We can now undertake remediation and upgrade electrical infrastructure, conduct safety checks and bring data and electrics together on every job.”

The new electrical installation branch  is headed up by Karl Anderson, Darren Williamson and Michael Calcroft – three ex-Lancashire police officers who have almost 60 years’ experience as qualified electricians between them.

The trio form the backbone of the new branch of the business and work all over the UK doing surveys ahead of fibre optic cable installations for Networx3’s diverse range of nationwide clients.

NAPIT is a Government-approved and United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) membership scheme for the building services and fabric sector.

Stephen Melton, head of commercial at NAPIT said: “It’s great to have Networx3 on board as a NAPIT registered business. They can now extend the service they offer to their many trusted clients who require an end to end solution to their installation work.

“As part of the accreditation process with NAPIT, Networx3 will be assessed to the highest industry standards on an annual basis, giving further piece of mind to their customers.”
