S G Ellis Contractors Ltd was founded by the late Mr Stanley G Ellis is 1966. After working for almost 21 years, Stanley left what was then YEB (Yorkshire Electricity Board) and decided to go work for himself. At YEB he had started as an apprentice and eventually worked his way up to the role of foreman. Harold Ellis, Stanley's father, had also worked at the YEB having held the title of Senior contacts manager. This gave Stanley excellent knowledge to begin work as an electrical contractor. Then in October 1966, he formed S.G.Ellis Electrical Contractors. At First, with being a new company getting work was hard, so Stanley turned his hand to small works including plumbing and joinery to make ends meet. Soon the electrical began to flow and this enabled him to take on an electrician and apprentice, all working from his home and garage. In 1968, the company became a limited company and now has the name S.G.Ellis (Electrical Contractors) Ltd. In 1970 Harold retired from the YEB and became the companies book keeper and secretary.



In 1974 Stanley's son Brian joined the company as an apprentice electrician and began working his way up through the company, eventually becoming managing director. In 1978 the company bought its first premises at 273 Otley Road, Undercliffe, Bradford. This premises was an ex stone masons workshop, engraving tomb stones. With the new workshop, came additional members off staff, taking the numbers to 3 electricians and 3 apprentices. Around this time Stanley's wife Joan also joined the company taking over as book keeper.

In 1998 the company moved to a new premises at Advance House, West Street, Bradford. To date the company has a work force of over 30 people.

In 2002 Brian's Son Stewart Ellis joined the company, this making him the fourth generation to do so.
