A Year to Celebrate

Deta Electrical has every reason to celebrate as the company reaches its 60th anniversary on Wednesday 10th October.  Founded in 1958, the market leading manufacturer and distributor of high-quality wiring and electrical accessories has built a reputation for quality of products, service and support. Deta is well established as a leading supplier to the UK electrical wholesale sector and has a strong presence in export markets to include the Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean where its products have been supplied and installed in a number of high-profile projects.

Since its inception in Enfield, London 60 years ago to the launch of the ‘Vimark’ brand in 1993, and thereafter its first developer specification in 1999, the Deta name has become synonymous with well designed, high quality and reliable wiring accessories. As market trends and preferences have evolved, Deta’s range of wiring accessories have been extended to include the market leading Slimline family, enhanced by the Ultra Flatplate and Screwless metal plate ranges, and more recently, the launch of Vimark Curve and Vimark Evo.

Deta is committed to continuous improvement and as a responsible supplier is proud to hold quality management certification to ISO 9001:2015 and environmental management certification to ISO 14001:2015.

Quality assured

Quality assurance has always been at the forefront for Deta and is in place across its entire worldwide supply chain. Deta undertakes a stringent selection, audit and continual monitoring process of its manufacturing facilities, in order to ensure quality and reliability of products and dependability of service is consistently delivered.

Environmental impact is similarly paramount to Deta, and a current and comprehensive review of product packaging is in progress to eliminate and reduce plastic waste and ensure that packaging materials used are recyclable whilst still maintaining aesthetic appeal. 

With its head office and distribution centre located in Luton, Deta’s dedicated and long serving team remain passionate and focussed on maintaining its highly prized reputation as the number one specification of choice amongst the UK’s leading new build developers.


Supported by the introduction of complementary new product ranges and through continuous investment in product innovation and design as well as strategic acquisitions, Deta continues to bring products to market that meet the latest needs of its wholesale customers and electrical contractors. In recent years, Deta has successfully extended its product offer to include residential lighting and ventilation, ‘Deta Protect+’ circuit protection and safety alarms, ‘Deta TTE’ steel conduit tube and fittings, and cable.

The investment doesn’t stop there, with a number of new and innovative product launches in the pipeline for the remainder of 2018 and in to 2019, including 4.0A USB Sockets with 3 high speed charging ports, incorporating a 60th Anniversary Special Edition ‘Deta Blue’ rear moulding.  Look out too for the new Deta Trade product catalogue launching in October which is full of new and exciting additions to the Deta range.

Throughout Deta’s continuous growth, its core values have remained unchanged in consistently delivering quality of products, service and support to its valued customers.  Deta does not intend to rest on its laurels as it maintains a relentless focus on staying at the forefront of the industry and bringing to market new and cutting-edge products to meet the needs of the modern market.

Managing Director Gerry Barnett commented:

“We are very proud to be celebrating throughout 2018 as Deta Electrical marks a very special milestone – our 60th anniversary. We are keen to celebrate our history, from our inception in London in 1958, to establishing Slimline as the number one specification of choice, and to the success of our ever-growing trade business today. I would like to thank our valued customers for their continued support and our staff for their dedicated hard work. Our goal for the future is to stay at the forefront of the industry, maintain our position as a high-quality manufacturer of wiring and electrical accessories and continue to invest in product development to meet the requirements of the modern market."
