In 1984, Trevor Goodridge had a vision. He saw an opportunity to provide exceptional electrical services to the community. With unwavering dedication, he founded our company, originally known as Goodridge Electronics. Trevor's passion for electronics and a commitment to quality set the foundation for what we are today.
Trevor Goodridge founded the company, specialising in electronic repairs and the construction and maintenance of equipment for recording studios.
Diversification into Electrical Installation
In response to the shift towards a throwaway culture and the increasing preference for budget electronics, the company diversified its services. During this decade, we transitioned to focus on electrical installation works, adapting to the evolving needs of our clients and the changing landscape of the electronics industry.
A Change in Leadership
With heavy hearts, we faced a profound loss when Trevor, our founder, unexpectedly passed away. This heartbreaking event marked a pivotal juncture in our journey. In the face of this loss, his son, Stephen, courageously stepped forward to shoulder the responsibility, determined to honor and carry forward his father's cherished legacy.
