Chris Harkins

Chris Harkins

Chris, one half of our managing director duo, began his career in the electrical industry with his own company, 'Harkins Electrical Services'. During this time, Chris also became a director at another award-winning multi-trade firm, where he excelled until 2016, when he was offered the opportunity to join Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions.

Chris has since progressed to Managing Director of Keith Gunn where he has assisted the company's continued growth and expansion. Keith Gunn is one of Edinburgh's oldest, most trusted, and most professional electrical service providers, and Chris has helped the company maintain and grow its stellar reputation.

Chris and Simon established Harkins and Vickers Electrical Solutions in Glasgow in 2022. This was done with the intention of providing our Glasgow clients with the same high-quality electrical service that we provide in Edinburgh.

Simon Vickers

Simon Vickers

The other half of our managing director duo, Simon, began his journey working under Mr Keith Gunn many years ago at the original ‘Keith Gunn Electrical services’. Simon is Mr Keith Gunn’s nephew and helped build Keith Gunn’s original reputation in the city of Edinburgh.

When Mr Keith Gunn had to step down from his role for medical reasons in 2015, he passed the torch to Simon and Chris who established ‘Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions’ as we know it today. Simon has helped carry on the excellent reputation and level of service clients of Keith Gunn have come to expect from the name and hopes to continue it on in Edinburgh for many years to come.

When the opportunity arose to expand to Glasgow, Simon and Chris used their own second names this time and established Harkins & Vickers Electrical Solutions in 2022. Simon now employs the knowledge and skills he gained while working for Mr Keith Gunn to provide an unrivalled electrical service to clients in the Glasgow area.

David Norton

David Norton

David is our Operations Director and has a wealth of knowledge in all areas of the electrical industry. David originally worked in the commercial sector providing electrical solutions for large scale industrial projects, such as the Novotel in Canary Wharf. 

With David’s impressive resume, it was a no brainer to bring him into the Keith Gunn team where he has been working for the past 5 years. During this time David has worked with our domestic clients giving him a well-rounded knowledge, experience and skill base in all areas of electrical work.

Our Story

Our managing directors, Chris and Simon, have a long history of working together having moulded our sister company, Keith Gunn into the incredibly successful and trusted business it is today. It was here that they built their successful working relationship and developed a loyal customer base. Their consistently high standards made them the perfect people to take over the business once Mr Keith Gunn made the decision to retire. The expansion into Glasgow has offered up the opportunity to make something of their own in Harkins and Vickers all while holding the values that they solidified at KGES. KGES has built a loyal customer base who would be happy to recommend us due to the excellent service we provide which is evident in our online reviews.
