About Us


Company Profile

The business was first established in 1976 by Terry Mountstephens, having served his apprenticeship on site at the Hinkley Point construction project. Terry saw an opportunity for a reliable and hard working firm to make a name for itself in the Somerset area. In the early days Terry first called around personally to local businesses in the Taunton and Wellington area to offer his services. From those early contacts we have gone on to establish ourselves as a reputable and capable electrical contracting company serving and supporting businesses throughout the county and beyond.

We continue to be a family run business that is proud of its reputation and the work we produce. Andrew Mountstephens (Terry's son) joined the company in 2008 as an apprentice and is now a qualified electrician and Director of Mountstephens Electrical Ltd.

Throughout our company history we have been involved in a huge number of electrical projects of varying sizes from major industrial and commercial construction projects to renovations and extensions for domestic customers. Here are a few highlights to give a flavour of the scope of our past portfolio;

During the 1990s we undertook a number of large construction projects for the Allied Domecq Group

In the late 1990s we also carried out a full electrical conversion of an existing VP wines factory in Marston Magna. The site was re-purposed into a commercial waste recycling facility for Perrys Recycling. We have continued to provide a full range of electrical installation and maintenance services for Perrys Recycling and in early 2004 we carried out a full electrical installation a new recycling facility for Perrys in Bridgwater, Somerset.

More recent commercial works have included:

We have completed a number of barn conversions and renovations/extensions with local building contractors Quantock Builders Ltd. We are also involved with a number of renovation and construction projects to listed properties with specialist firm Wessex Conservation Ltd.
