Zenlec Ltd was established at the beginning of 2020 by James and Catherine Barnes. James has worked in the electrical industry for over 20 years as an electrician, CompEx trained qualified supervisor, and project manager specialising in hazardous area work. He managed the family business for 10 years which involved estimating, marketing activities, project management, health and safety supervision, staff supervision and training and regularly getting his hands dirty. When the director decided to retire James decided to set up his own company with his wife Catherine retaining all the clients.
After obtaining a degree in Law and Accounting at Manchester University, Catherine worked as a lawyer for nearly 20 years specialising in defending industrial disease claims and employment law. Having decided that she wanted a change and new challenge, Zenlec Ltd has provided the perfect opportunity for James and Catherine to combine their unique skillset to make Zenlec one of the leading electrical contractors and hazardous area specialists in the country.
