An electrical engineering company is targeting new markets after a year of growth.

Nala Engineers, an electrical contracting firm based in Seaham, had one of its most successful 12-month periods, which saw new contracts won and it named as one of Ward Hadaway’s ‘Fastest 50’ growing companies of 2016.

Family firm Nala specialises in retail, commercial and industrial electrical installations and has carried out work for a range of companies including Caterpillar, Entek, Matalan and Cumbrian Seafoods.

Director Nicola Duke said: “Last year was extremely busy for us and experienced growth over and above projections.

“This year it’s all about tapping into new markets so we’re focussing on developing our marketing strategy to help us achieve that.

“Some of the sectors we’re currently working in have started to become saturated and we need to look at ways to strengthen our existing client base before planning further growth in 2018.”
