After many years of friendship and working alongside each other, Alec Green and James Walker decided that it made perfect sense to start a business together. In 1986 they began Advanced Electrics Ltd. They began by carrying out repairs to washing machines, now 27 years later Alec and Jim have worked hard to build the established business that at present has a workforce of 20.
Having served his time in the distilling industry and although a director of the company, Alec is certainly not afraid to get his hands dirty.
In between meetings he can usually be found on site helping out the guys when required.
As the other director of Advanced Electrics, James oversees the administration side of the business.
Now reaching his twilight years, James is beginning to wind down and prepare himself for retirement.
