Leading mechanical and electrical building services specialist J S Wright has strengthened its rapidly growing electrical business after appointing a new Senior Electrical Contracts Engineer.  

Darren Swift will manage the electrical element of M&E building projects, as well as solus electrical projects, across the hotel, residential, social housing, student accommodation, leisure and commercial sectors.

Based at J S Wright’s headquarters in Birmingham, Darren will work with National Electrical Contracts Director Paul Featherston in supporting all three of the company’s offices in Aston, Bristol and London.

With almost 30 years of experience in the electrical services industry, Darren was previously Electrical Project Manager for another Midlands-based building services contractor.

His credits include managing the supply and installation of all the electrical services for new regional distribution centres for supermarket giant Aldi.

Darren, who lives in Oldbury and was apprenticed to an engineering firm in Walsall, is currently working on two major mixed-use developments at Arena Central and Paradise in Birmingham city centre.

Marcus Aniol, J S Wright Managing Director, said: “Darren’s skills and experience will help us to continue our successful development as a national M&E services provider in association with our electrical supply chain.”

J S Wright was voted one of the UK’s Top Ten Specialist Contractors to Work For in the 2016 Construction Enquirer Awards and was a finalist in three categories in the 2018 H&V News Awards.
