About Us

In 1984 Terry Drake started T K Drake, a business providing electrical contracting service in the Norfolk area for a wide range of customers with the same ethos and ethics it provides today.

During 1990 the T K Drake Electrical shop opened and in 1999 the T K Drake retail department relocated and expanded in the market town of Swaffham. The shop offered shoppers 2,000sqfeet of the latest electrical appliances, electrical accessories and lighting products under one roof and where free impartial advice is provided so you get the right product and correct appliance for your particular requirements. The retail shop of drakes supports all the areas of the business with ‘off the shelf’ products for residential and business applications with over 6,000 products on display and many thousands more available by demand including a wide range of electrical, plumbing and heating components for all minor and major applications.

It was in 1999 that the further expansion of T K Drake and the associated services and industry trades offered was realised and T K Drake Electrical Contractor Ltd was formed. Today, following continued growth and expansion the drakes group encompasses all of these trades and services under one convenient and easy to recognise brand, drakes, continuing to provide the highest levels of professionalism and expertise in electrical services, plumbing and heating services, renewable technologies and air conditioning to our discerning clients throughout the East of England.
