In Channel Magazine we love highlighting local businesses doing great things. It is one of the key reasons we launched the magazine nine years ago. One such business is versatile local electrical firm Electrical Systems. Publisher Aidan Bennett went along to their Vega Place base during January in an effort to discover the secrets to their success.
At Benefitz – the parent company of Channel Magazine – our electrical and data requirements are significant. The company we entrust to look after that work is Electrical Systems, owned and operated by local Milford identity Ross McKoy. Ross started the business 26 years ago this year.
Ross McKoy, a “sparky” by trade himself, has more than 40 years experience in the electrical industry, both in New Zealand and off shore, the last 26 of those years running Electrical Systems. Ross has a team of 20 on staff at Electrical Systems – including electricians, labourers and apprentices – as well as a pool of specialist contractors engaged as required.
“I have always driven a strong customer service focus in the business and believe that this is key to our success,” explained Ross, when we visited him at his Vega Place base. “This remains a priority across all of our electrical services, which now include residential, commercial, maintenance and service work, as well as data. Data is now an important part in the mix.
“Other key performance indicators that we strive for as a business are quality workmanship – including precise labelling and documentation, an assurance for customers that all projects are completed on time and within budget, and ultimately that the company offers a service that is second to none.”
Ross says that all Electrical Systems electricians have met the high safety standard and commercial criteria set by the Electrical Contractors Association and all are registered master electricians.
“We have always had a focus on training, with bringing through new electricians to the industry via the apprenticeship programme an important part of our business.”
Whether you require complete home renovations or power point installations, Electrical Systems is focused on delivering a trusted, friendly service, excellent workmanship and competitive pricing. No job is too big or too small.
"We get things going and then keep them going with a minimum amount of disruption to the home or the workplace,” adds Ross McKoy.
While commercial and domestic electrical work is the company's bread and butter, Electrical Systems has expertise that has been developed over many years in other related areas. This includes security, MATV, civil electrical, street and motorway lighting and sports field lighting. Under Ross’ leadership the business has also completed significant projects in the Pacific Islands. These projects have included learning centres, schools, colleges and marine training centres.
Electrical Systems runs a fleet of utes and vans, and has its own truck-mounted two tonne crane.
So folks, if you are looking for a new service provider for your electrical and data requirements, or have a project in the pipeline or an immediate need for a sparky, then call Ross and his team at Electrical Systems. His special new year 2019 offer is all new clients go into the draw to win a Mango Foldable Electric Bike valued at $2485. This offer ends April 30th.
