John Hings our founder, is a larger than life character from the Peterborough area who is highly regarded by clients, peers and employees alike.

About Us

John began his career in engineering as an apprentice electrical engineer at Baker Perkins, a Peterborough based manufacturer and supplier of process machinery to the food industry.

That apprenticeship was completed in the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) a corps of the British Army that maintains equipment the Army uses.

In 1973 John left the REME but continued in engineering, working on a contract basis in industrial and commercial environments contributing to the development of the City that would become the township of Peterborough.

In the late 1980s and after founding a relationship with the prestigious global engine producer Perkins Engines, John made the step up from contracting engineer to business owner and established the business John Hings Electrical Services.

After years of successful trading combined with measured development John Hings Electrical Services became limited in 2005 and in 2013 John handed the running of the business to the present management team.

In 2014 we celebrated our 30th anniversary and proud of our heritage the business continues to deliver and develop welcoming the challenges of the next 30 years.

Now with the trading name of Hings Electrical & Data Installations, our services are installation and maintenance in both electrical and mechanical disciplines.

We are situated in Peterborough close to the A1 and provide our services nationwide.
