Mandek was incorporated as a business in 2014 by directors Kevin Brandley and Noel Brandley, having clocked up a total of 20 years of experience in the industry between them. Kevin and Noel have approached the industry from different angles, resulting in a breadth of knowledge across the installation and design aspects of electrical contracting.
Kevin Brandley, Installation Director
Kevin joined local firm Tinston Electrical Ltd as an apprentice electrician in 2002, and attended Northampton College until 2005 when he became a fully qualified electrician. He spent the vast majority of his time as a site-based electrician until 2009 when he moved into a managerial role that involved designing, pricing, ordering, attending meetings and generally overseeing jobs.
Kevin decided to start Mandek Ltd in April 2014, and has built on his previous experience to develop it into the thriving business that it is today. He works on projects from the budget stages right through to handover and beyond, taking a hands-on approach at all stages.
Noel Brandley, Design Director
Noel studied MEng Architectural Engineering Design at The University of Sheffield, where he was taught an holistic approach to building design that included structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and architectural design.
After graduating in 2011, he joined Ramboll, a large multi-discipline engineering consultancy with 1,000 staff in the UK and 10,000 staff worldwide. From his position of Mechanical Design Engineer he worked on a range of projects throughout the UK, Europe and Asia.
Noel joined Mandek Ltd in September 2014, with the aim of using his skills in design and engineering to give the company an edge over its competitors. His approach is to design out the vast majority of queries long before a project hits site, thus avoiding the usual problems of coordination, incorrect ordering and programming issues.
