About Us

Experts Since 1958

Cannon Electrical Contractors & Engineers

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.

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.
