Quarrying and Electrical Engineering is in our blood, for many generations the Tuckers have been involved in Mining, Quarrying and Electrical Engineering all over the world. The founder of the present business The Late Ron Tucker migrated from the diminishing Cornish mining industry into quarrying in 1954 working as an electrical supervisor at the then ARC Hingston Down Quarry. He progressed to become a Quarry Manager but in 1977 found himself out of work and turned to his roots and started the business serving the local quarrying industry. Over the next few years all his three sons joined the business and more recently his granddaughter Louise joined the family firm after graduating from University with a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. We now have a wide and varied customer base covering the UK.
