Kevin Adams- Founder/Owner of This Is Electric
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Kevin Adams: I personally have been an electrician for almost 15 years. I arrived in New Zealand 6 years ago after traveling the world and it took me 4 years to feel confident enough in my NZ knowledge and NZ contacts to go out on my own. I have always wanted to own my own business and provide quality work for my customers.
Great Companies: What are the various services and products provided by your company?
Kevin Adams: Residential, Commercial, Maintenance, new builds, renovations, switchboard upgrades, home automation, solar systems, heat pumps, alarms, CCTV, audio/visual, data/network solutions, and more. We also have a very experienced electrical engineer.
Great Companies: Why should one choose you over others in this field?
We have over 50 years of experience between us. We are on time, on budget, confident, knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We can do anything electrical so you only need to deal with us.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Kevin Adams: Covid-19 has been a struggle in lockdown. Even though we were available as an emergency service we only did a couple of jobs to keep the risk on the employees to a minimum.
We like to challenge ourselves and we are constantly trying to get involved in bigger projects. Something we have found hard is breaking into bigger building companies as then tend to have good relationships already. All we ask though is a chance to show what we can do.
Great Companies: What do you think are the few main things which are most important for a successful business?
Kevin Adams: Good workmanship, good leadership, honesty, communication, and a can-do positive attitude to everything you do.
