“I have worked with Thompson’s for the past 7 years in my role as Estates Manager at Cardinal Newman College. The company have carried out many various electrical and mechanical projects, planned and reactive maintenance works.

They are a very professional and well organised company, who can work within budget constraints. Work is always completed on time and to a high standard, with the appropriate certificates and RAMS delivered on time. The engineers understand the importance of working on a live site with some 3000 staff and students.

Each one of Thompson’s employees are professional, hardworking and highly skilled. I believe this work ethic comes from the Directorship and Management, who value, train and respect their work force and therefore gain commitment and a very conscientious approach to work.”
