At 18, Dave Brown started an apprenticeship as an electrician and then used his trade to travel overseas working in England, Canada and South Africa amongst other countries. Upon his return to New Zealand, he worked for other electrical companies throughout Wellington before making the decision to start his own business.
During his time contracting, he was aware that often other trades people were needed to be on-site to complete a specific project, however, the client hadn’t organised the provision of these services. Dave realised this could be a defining difference for his business and in 2006 the business became a ‘one stop shop’ where all of the trades were organised for a specific building project.
Ten years on, Dave Brown Electrical Services Ltd now have a team of six electricians and a fleet of work vehicles that cover the greater Wellington Region, providing residential, commercial and marine electrical work and lighting design and installation.
