Our simple approach has served our clients very well over these last ten years.

Peter Hodge

Co Founder - Customer Delivery
Head of getting the job done and ensuring customer satisfaction. In charge of ensuring the compliance, standards and expectations of our clients are met.

I take pride in solving any problems that arise where others have failed. I am the Qualifying Manager for the number one recognised body for electrical installation works - NICEIC.

Qualified to HNC level in Electrical and Electronic engineering and hold qualifications in electrical design, fire alarms, intruder alarms, electric vehicle charger installation and other qualifications amongst them.

I have been playing underwater hockey (yes, it is a real sport!) for over 25 years and have been honoured to have represented my country at international level. I am currently the coach of the GB Masters squad and shall be taking the team to the World Championships in Australia in July 2021.

"A quick story."

"The scruffy surveyor came round to the house and asked me where I wanted the lights and not much else, no niceties, no options. On the way out he wrote one word on a yellow carbon copy pad (it was a few years ago!), it read "Lights £900.00" in a doctors like scrawl.  Seemed like he could not wait to get out the door and be somewhere else.

I just remember thinking! "If this is the best so-called electrical contractor in the area, then surely people deserve better."

That gave me the impetus to start up on my own.

Pete and I both worked at a national compliance company so I asked if he would like to join me . We hatched a plan and set up Ultimate Electrical, then three years ago we launched Ultimate Compliance.

What our customers are saying:


Stewart McCrae

Director- Property Advisory Services Ltd

Steve is my first port of call when it comes to Fixed Wire Testing and electrical compliance matters. I've got a strong technical background in electrical engineering, but keeping up to date with best practice and the latest compliance requirements in an ever-changing industry can be a challenge at times. Their focus on electrical compliance as a core competency has been the key to there success.  It’s my recommendation to talk to Steve if you need any help with Fixed Wire Testing.


Rochelle Latham

Managing Director - Latham Smith

Pete from Ultimate is my ‘font of all knowledge for anything electrical’.  As a letting agent, I need an electrical contractor who is honest, reliable and cost-effective and I’ve found this rare combination with this great company.  My tenants get great service and my landlords get a good price and I get good service, pro-activity and feedback at every step.  I would certainly recommend Ultimate for all your electrical needs.  Thank you!


Jarard Cassem

Director - Quatrefoils

Steve was very helpful and provided an excellent service in arranging and carrying out Electrical Test Reports on a number of Schools for us. A big thanks to him and the team for their hard work.


Janet Whittaker

School Bursar - Christ Church Primary School

We have been with Ultimate for a number of years for electrical testing; it’s great to have a company that reminds you of the due dates and plans the work around the busy school life. I have always found the company friendly, helpful, reliable and competitively priced.


Mandy Walters

Purchasing Mgr - Nicholson McLaren Engines

I have known Ultimate for over six years and I can say that it has been a pleasure working with you. We are an engineering company as such we know what to expect from engineers who come to our site. Its sometimes not enough to be great technically and you are, you also have to retain a friendly and professional approach to the job and you do.
If you want people working on-site that can solve problems and quietly just get on with the job then I would thoroughly recommend them."


Sharon Griffiths

Facilities Manager - Roxburghe Plc

They supplied just what we needed and did not go overboard! I guess like a lot of companies, we went to the usual suspects for our Fixed Wire Testing.  When we spoke to Steve from Ultimate Compliance he spent time with me to get the right option for us.  I like the integrity of the company for not selling us services we don't really need.
If you want a company that just gives sound advice provides a sensible route to ensuring compliance at a good price than I would recommend them anytime.


Ian Rider

Facilities Manager - The Corporation of Trinity

We got recommended to ultimate by our M&E Consultants. Even though we had a previous certificate we wanted a clean start so we went for the business 100 service. we're very busy in the summer, but the service was well planned and there were no interruptions to our business. Very happy to recommend.


Malcolm Cooper

Facilities Manager - PGS Exploration Plc

Ultimate has been supplying electrical compliance work for the last seven years we have found them both very knowledgeable, reliable and easy to deal with.


John Pollard

Facilities Manager - Whiteley Village

As an electrician myself, I think I'm well placed to judge the quality of their work.
When the testing is complete, Steve often returns and personally runs through the results and checks the service has been delivered to my expectations a nice personal touch unusual for these days. Thanks, guys for all your hard work."
