CJ Timms Electrical Services: A Rich History

Roger Timms is a fourth generation electrician and Managing Director of CJ Timms Electrical Services - helping businesses to plan, install, maintain and repair their electrical and data installations. During his presentation to Network4Business on the 3rd of May 2019, Roger informed us of the rich history of the business, and their impressive growth across the years.

The CJ Timms journey began with Roger’s great grandad Jarvis Timms, the first electrician in the Timms family. Jarvis’ son, William Eric, followed in his father’s footsteps as the second generation electrician in the family. William was seconded during WWII to work for Rolls Royce, making electrical wiring looms for military vehicles. After gaining this experience, he set up and started Timms Roe with his partner Tommy Roe and began specialising in electrical installations.

Roger’s father Chris worked as an apprentice to William at Timms Roe, before founding CJ Timms in 1992. Roger, along with Russell Timms, joined the company in 1992, working under Chris as apprentices. Roger became the managing director of CJ Timms in 2010, and began the evolution of the company to the successful commercially led business they are today.

Over the years, the focus of CJ Timms has shifted under Roger’s leadership; moving on from being known as a domestic & small installations company, to working with larger contracts for shopfitting, project design companies, manufacturing, schools and colleges, as well as office refits.

CJ Timms take pride in their unique and consultative approach, with the sole aim of providing holistic solutions to both industrial and commercial clients. They are able to offer an in-house electrical department as well as help with design and specification. Including the right requirements means that costs will be more accurate, and helps to improve overall project satisfaction, deadlines and pricing requirements. The added bonus being that there are no last minute surprises over something that has been missed in a specification by designers with less electrical expertise.

CJ Timms are an ideal partner to work as an extension of any clients’ business, working within the business to deliver electrics. They are dedicated to forming strong ongoing relationships with clients, understanding business needs and the importance of getting things right the first time.

The business now aims to build strong relationships with clients in these sectors, with a good introduction being a coffee with any companies who would benefit from having an electrical department working for their business.
