Have you sent us an SOS yet?

We’d just like to remind you about our SOS service. When you hit an unexpected snag and need unanticipated supplies or a client asks you to do another job you weren’t prepared for then our Speedy Onsite Service will bring what you need to you. Just call us on 020 7381 8661 and if we can fit what you need into our bike’s spacious box we’ll get your supplies to you usually within the hour. You get to keep on working whilst we deal with the traffic! 


We’re always looking for ways to serve you better so we constantly invest in staff training. Whether that’s ongoing ‘on the job’ knowledge and skills training or product specific training delivered by our suppliers. We encourage all our staff to see learning as a continuous process so that they can deal with your queries accurately and with confidence. Whilst we can’t all claim to know everything we do have product experts including our own in-house certified Lutron programmer for the Grafik Eye and Grafik Eye QS Systems. So if you need any help please ask.

Customer Training

Whilst we’re on the subject of training would you like some? Our previous sessions have proved popular (was it the training or the bacon rolls?) and we’d be happy to do more if there is a demand. Please spare 60 seconds to fill in this one question survey so we can identify the most popular topics. You don’t have to give your name or make a commitment at this stage.


What is the best consumer unit to buy?

New Products

We’re delighted to introduce a new range of consumer units from Schneider and we think you’ll love them.

With this range from a brand you know you can trust you get a high end product for a mid range price. We’re sure your clients will love them and we can guarantee delivery whenever you need them.

Group B Entertains

We’re very sociable and love getting to know our loyal customers better. Every year we entertain a few of our valued clients and suppliers to some corporate hospitality.
On July 1st we had a lovely day by the river at Henley Regatta. As this photo shows much fun was had by all thanks to some additional sponsorship from Schneider, Univolt and Osram.

We’re just making plans for our spring event which will be Six Nations Rugby at Twickenham. We’re very excited to be going to the Calcutta Cup (England v Scotland) game on March 11th. Who will we invite to join us?

Many congratulations to Lifestyle Projects and their site manager Sam Devlin who have just been awarded an NHBC Quality award for their Coombe Pines development in Kingston upon Thames. They now go on to compete for a Seal of Excellence and a Regional Award which will be announced at a special dinner in November.
Group B are proud to be Lifestyle Projects’ main lighting and electrical supplier. Sam says that the company likes the personal touch that they get from Group B. He particularly praised our ability to source specific products that an architect or designer has requested or to recommend a suitable alternative if the specified design isn’t available.
