1 Dockhead Street,
The company was started in 1922 by my grandfather Gregor Watson, who was an electrician from Coatbridge, outside Glasgow. He heard that the first electrical cable was being laid into the seaside town of Saltcoats and consequently moved to the town to gain from the accompanying electrical work. It was my grandfather who carried out many of the original electricity installations locally in the houses of the town. My father, John Watson took up the reins in 1959 and made the successful switch from contracting to retail and in 1978, I (Peter Watson) joined the company.
