Who We Are
My name is Daniel Lavery and with my partner Klaire Wilson, we formed Netelec in 2016. Having both worked for large electrical wholesalers for a number of years we knew we could provide a better service to clients while improving our home/work life balance.
We don’t have ambitions of being a large wholesale chain, we simply strive to know our customers, understand their individual needs and provide them with honest, reliable service.
What We Do
Netelec looks after all aspects of the electrical industry but has a strong focus on industrial and marine products.
We don’t just sell products, we provide a service. Products you can buy anywhere, good service is not so easy to find. Please contact us today to see what we can do for you.
