Our History

Our team of staff provides an experienced, highly skilled, professional service across the UK.

How it began

Having completed their professional apprenticeships at the end of the second world war, in the era of post war optimism, George Park & Ernie Gate setup Park Gate & Co. Ltd and began trading on the 23rd October 1946 in Fisher Street, Carlisle, Cumbria.

From a back room in Jack Burrow’s premises, the business soon began to expand and take on employees

Covid-19 Announcement

Following the outbreak of Coronavirus earlier in the year Park Gate has been operating with reduced staffing levels and although we have continued to provide essential electrical services to industry, there has inevitably been some minor disruptions to our services.

We are pleased to say that the situation has slowly improved and over a period of a few months staff have been gradually returning to work. As of July, 98% of staff are back at work, although a few are still working part-time, and some are still working from home. Overall, however, we are almost fully operational again and there should now be little difference from the services we offered prior to Coronavirus.

At our offices we are restricting visitors and carrying out a number of Covid-19 measures which are probably becoming familiar to everyone. Similarly, our staff working on sites are doing all that they can to prevent any spread of the virus.

All at Park Gate would like to thank our customers, suppliers and colleagues for their understanding and support over the course of the past few months, and hope that the journey to normality continues as we go forward into the future.
