Company Profile

Company History

Since its inception in 1964 in Goffs Oak, (then called RC Gibbs Electrical and renamed to R & P Gibbs when his son joined the Company) has grown in to a Group of Companies offering a comprehensive range of services for domestic, commercial and industrial premises. We are based in Cheshunt but also cover the surrounding areas.

R & P Gibbs Contracting - offers all types of installations, maintenance, repairs and inspection services for electrical, plumbing and heating.

R & P Gibbs Supplies Counter - is for the supply of electrical, plumbing and heating materials as well as tools.

Also part of the R & P Gibbs Group is lmpact Alarms – and specialize in installation, repairs and maintenance of intruder Alarms, CCTV and Door Entry Sytems and Security Systems. We are able to give you advice as to which system best suits your needs and we will provide free quotations on the different systems in order to help you make your decision.

Impact alarms started in 1968 when Ron's own home was subject to a burglary so we know the importance of home protection. With the advancements in alarms today you can have a wire free alarm system installed which means no wires on show or the need to conceal wires , making them ideal for replacements preventing damage to existing decor or carpet removal.

ln 1989 we decided to look for premises to store our electrical contracting materials and we found a shop in Turners Hill which presented us with an opportunity to be able to expand the Company further, so the Supplies Shop was started, serving both the trade and public.

ln 1998 the Company branched out in to the world of Bathrooms and called this new venture The Cheshunt Bathroom Centre Ltd and is also based at Turners Hill.

This has proved to be a great success and has expanded in to larger premises and now also includes Kitchens offering the complete package from design, supply and installation for bathrooms and kitchens or a supply only service. The showroom is based next door to R & P Gibbs. Please see our Cheshunt Bathroom website for what we can offer in the world of Bathrooms and Kitchens, click here for more information: http://www.cheshunt-bathrooms.co.uk

Over the years we have remained very much a family run business and is based on many years of experience. The masterminds behind this truly one stop shop are Ron and Philip Gibbs. Ron started in 1964 and when his son Philip left school he qualified as an Electrician with distinction in 1987, when he reached the age of 21 he became a partner and the Company was re-named to R & P Gibbs, since then Philip has now become a Member of The Institution of Engineering and Technology in his field.

Other members of the family also work for the Company and are supported by a good work force, most of which are in house trained through the apprentice schemes run by the Hertford Regional College. In 2009 and 2011 we were awarded Employer of the year by Hertford Regional College.

We have built up a good customer base and have many of our customers return to us for our services. We strongly believe in providing customers with the best possible service and products. All staff are aware that personal recommendations are the best form of advertising and a satisfied customer is the best recommendation you can get.


We look forward to working with you soon.
