Our Company was formed in August 1958 as Cannon Electrical Contractors (Manchester) Ltd., with offices and stores in New Cannon Street. Due to the development of the Manchester Arndale Centre, we had to relocate our business to Kennedy Street, Manchester, where we remained for twenty-seven years.

Redevelopment prompted our move to larger offices in Clarence Street in November 1990.

We relocated to Unit 2, Derwent Street Industrial Estate, Salford, in 2000, due expansion.

Yet again redevelopment prompted our move to Trafford Park, Manchester in 2012, where we can service the City Centre with ease, and we are also on the major motorway network links and, soon to be, tram network links.

In May 2005 we changed our name to Cannon Electrical Contractors Limited. This was due to our company no longer being in the City Centre and coincided to the third generation taking control of this family run business.

Our company is engaged in the design, installation, maintenance, inspection/testing and commissioning of electrical installations, including the supply installation and testing of data network cabling for commercial and industrial clients.
