Reflecting on 2020: A Bright Future

Our year began with a monumental relocation to the heart of Preston City Centre, the perfect venue to support the growth of our Lantei team. The modern refurbishment not only compliments our iconic branding, but also creates an agile workplace, equipped with more space, and the technology to work remotely or virtually when required. With this move, we were prepared for any eventuality.

Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to seize opportunities and strive for goals. We negotiated and purchased the TEGG franchise, truly demonstrating our strength of character, and how when presented with turbulent times, our determination allows us to prevail.  With our compliance roots, we merge traditional testing with TEGG, combining the complimentary methods to create the perfect solution. It is not simply the attainment of this technology, but how we will use it to benefit the end user. No other electrical testing house provides this blended service, placing us at the forefront, as pioneers of the industry. With this, we have an opportunity to revolutionise the electrical testing industry throughout the UK.

This year, we have competed with contractors across the country and successfully won the electrical testing contract for a prolific housing association based in the North West of England. Managing the compliance schedules for over almost 30,000 homes, this was a huge win for the housing division. This victory came not long after the Nuffield Health contract, also procured via tender. Operating as the UK’s largest healthcare charity, Nuffield contracted Lantei to deliver Fixed Wire, Portable Appliance, and Emergency Light Testing over a five-year period. The strength of our team is a core factor in our ability to win significant contracts, build trust with existing clients, and maintain a transparent communicative approach to our operations. New recruits have joined the business, accommodating greater expansion, and strengthening team structures, in line with our value of continuous improvement. We have great pride for our list of 2020 achievements and could not be prouder of the Lantei family, and their ability to adjust.

Our achievements have certainly not gone unrecognised, as we have been crowned finalists for various accolades throughout the year. Notably, Lantei Housing were nominated for Contractor of the Year by UK Housing Awards. Lancashire Business View shortlisted two of our valued employees for their renowned Red Rose Awards. Head of Housing Jon Greenwood, was named ‘Employee of the Year’ finalist having received glowing reviews from his team and clients, cementing his value within the division. Our very own Kieran Sheehan was commended for his dedication to customer service, as one of our resident Electrical Safety Consultants.  His commitment to enhancing the journey of each individual client is hugely admirable, and certainly worthy of this recognition.

This year has culminated in us joining forces with British Engineering Services, an incredibly exciting partnership, uniting two companies with aligned goals, illuminating the future ahead for us all. As an independent Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) business, we are bringing our electrical expertise to the table, enhancing their product range with additional services they have not previously been able to provide. This is a great move for Lantei. We are seizing the opportunity to expand our family with both hands and are very excited for a bright future together.

“This is great timing for both companies. We have both had a really strong 2020 despite COVID and are looking for the next step for our businesses as we continue to deliver an industry leading service to our customers.  Joining the British Engineering Services Group will allow us to focus on building an even better future for Lantei and our team.” Andrew Livesey, Managing Director at Lantei.

Ten years ago, Lantei was established with the safety of the people in mind. Knowing the extensive damage that can be caused by electrical faults, we aimed to protect with our compliance services. This has not changed. Yes, we have grown over time, but this does not take away from the level of care provided. The past year has shown what can be achieved when we unite to power through difficult times, and continuously acclimatise to this changing world. We will continue to grow, and we will adapt to our environment, but our values will always be at our core. Our clients and our people will always be our primary focus, and we will continue to go the extra mile to exceed expectations…one test at a time.
