Kevin Lachlan

Kevin commenced his apprenticeship in 1991 and has been involved in the industry ever since. After working locally for around 10 years he spent 2 years in England working for PTC Systems and Cable & Wireless. He then returned to Newcastle and operated his own business, delivering reliable cabling for many of the sites listed above. His particular skills are in installation and delivery, getting the cables from A to B with minimal disruption and disturbance.
