Our Story

We have been providing the people of Auckland with unparalleled electrical services for over 40 years now and know the industry inside and out. From residential lighting, to commercial and industrial ventures, we’ve seen and done it all. With a wealth of experience, and certifications to match, we’ve grown exponentially since our 1974 inception.

From our early beginnings with Richard French at the helm, our team of qualified electricians has grown into the family business it is today. Richard’s son, Chris, joined the family trade in 1992, and became a partner in 1996. As a father/son duo, Richard and Chris have successfully trained over thirty apprentices, who have since become qualified tradesmen and women.

Our Mission

At French Electrical, we have a passion for the innovative; we embrace evolving technologies and keep up to date with the latest electrical trends. We know the importance of professionalism and strive always to provide the best service at the best price. We believe that state of the art technology can enhance living and working environments while balancing the ever important cost-effectiveness of a project. With environmental concerns becoming more prominent in global activities, we have branched into solar panelling and developed our understanding of the power of solar energy.
