Our History

Bonus Electrical was founded by Eric Boanas, at the time the company operated out of rented premises on Mytongate.
Eric’s son Trevor joined the business – at this time Bonus Electrical had a turnover of £800 a month. Trevor was paid £20 per week with 1% commission, he clearly responded well to this as just a few months later the companies turnover had risen to £5,000 per month.
The company moved to its new premises on Flinton Street off Hessle Road to accommodate for its growth. Bonus Electrical focussed their attention on providing the best customer service whether that meant travelling to a contractor or having the right stock at the right time – something which the company still pride themselves on to this very day.

Eric sadly passed away, the company shares were split 50/50 between Trevor and Graham – Eric’s other son. Graham joined the company, he started at the Bridlington branch but then moved to the Hull branches buying department.
Bonus Electrical acquired Blackfriargate a new site to accommodate additional storage and office space. At this point the company had grown to a staff force of 20.
Shaun Boanas followed in the family footsteps and joined the company. The firm also launched Bonus Accessories – a specialist pre-pack electrical products subsidiary which brought ‘just in time’ systems to the electrical industry.

Bonus Plug-In Systems was launched due to the acquisition of CEC Plug-in, this division of the company supplied to the industrial, domestic and leisure markets. It also supported the caravan industry at a time when it was suffering by introducing different payment methods.
Trevor retired and Shaun took over the running of the Bonus Group, he still runs it to this day. Trevor is happy that Shaun is carrying on the family run business having built up so much knowledge and experience over the years.

The company announced a two-year sponsorship deal with Hull City AFC it brought certain benefits to the business which no one had foreseen. Such benefits included increased footfall and additional public support and recognition.
Bonus Electrical opened its own retail outlet in Willerby realising that customers wanted to purchase lighting as well as other household goods in one shop.
The National distribution centre in Kingswood opened for both trade and public adding to the list of multiple branches owned by Bonus Electrical.
