Who we are
Our group combines several operating businesses under the EJ mark. The complementary skills that we’ve brought together have made us a UK market-leader in facilities engineering.
Across the group we offer mechanical, electrical, energy, and process engineering – and we take great pride in delivering outstanding work for our clients. Although our businesses all share the EJ mark, what really unites them is our client-focused philosophy.
We call it the EJ way.
The EJ way
The EJ way underpins our thinking, from apprentice to boardroom and represents our drive to exceed the needs of our clients and excel at everything we do.
Our story begins in 1911 when the entrepreneur Edwin James Stiell set up a small business in the emerging market of electrified coal-cutting machinery. He understood that gathering a team that shared his passion to over-deliver for customers would help his business stand head and shoulders above the rest. And it worked.
It’s what inspires us to this day.
With members of our team brought together at EJ Stiell, and set to take the thinking behind the EJ way to new heights, we borrowed his initials – and you’ll find that they stand for his same passion across our group, and in our values of safety, service, and people.
Behind the scenes, the EJ way isn’t just about how we work with you; at its heart is our understanding that in order to maintain our advantage we recognise that our people are our best assets.
We nurture them, invest in them, and foster an environment that empowers them to take personal responsibility for their work.
This means you will always be working with a team of independent but likeminded people that are committed to developing a longstanding relationship with you.
