Sam Rowe

I have been in the electrical industry for over 15 years.
Over that time I have developed a passion to ensure my customers have their work completed to the highest standards. Simply put if they’re happy, I’m happy.

Back in 2007 I entered the trade as an apprentice after finishing school. My brother being part of my inspiration to enter a trade as he himself is a bricklayer. Having always been a hands on person entering a trade myself just made sense.

I chose to become and electrician as I had a passion for electronics at school. Starting my studies as an apprentice electrician it was clear that electronics and electrical installation are completely different things. I enjoyed my training throughout my full four-year apprenticeship and my skills and experience grew along the way. Nearing the completion of my first year, I was made redundant working for a large Plymouth based firm which got hit by the recession. Luckily I found another employer quickly to complete my apprenticeship and continued to work for up until starting Rowe-NET.

With my passion in hobby electronics and my qualifications in electrical installation, testing and certification I chose to enter the industry on my own to be able to follow in my own ventures such as home automation and other smart technologies. The way technology has become entwined into our lives, a smart home helps to cut our energy consumption by automatically switching off lights or our heating when not present in a room. Lower blinds or close curtains when its dark outside. More recently voice assistants make controlling the home much simpler whether its lights, heating or even the TV or music.
