From the Inside Out
What you experience as a customer is a direct result of what goes on ‘in’ a company. You can’t fake culture and values, so for us at Trilect our core values are not just pretty slogans but actually what we live by.
The company began in 1997 and became one of the first in New Zealand to receive accreditation as a Master Electrician.
Our great company started back in 1997 with the 3 partners, Owen, Jim, and Pete McInally. Owen has always been a silent partner that has overseen the company due to his vast history in electrical expertise and managing companies, however, it has always surprised me how much noise a silent partner can actually make.
Jim was the number one man from day one were he started working full time while Pete continued working his normal job and working extra hours with Jim in the evenings and weekends until the workload was enough to provide an income for 2 employed staff, this took about 8 weeks.
Pete’s first vehicle was a $150 prelude that we needed to park around the corner because it was too embarrassing to drive into the customer’s driveway until we could afford our 2nd van, this only took about 4 weeks as that was all that was left on the warrant of fitness of the now unwarrantable vehicle, but driving in that car it felt more like 4 years.
Since then we have moved from a home-run business to a subtenant business with various small storage areas and workshops to our 15 staffed teams running very efficiently out of our East Tamaki Warehouse on Torrens Rd.
2019 is a big year for us as we have expanded our business to 5 divisions, which include but are not limited to Residential Electrical, Commercial Electrical, Gate Automation Solar Power, Underfloor Heating, and Housing New Zealand contractor. Our team also increased to 80 people and we have moved to a new, bigger premise at 13 Laureston Ave, Papatoetoe.
We started small and we are fully aware of what it takes to keep our customers happy. This knowledge and attention have been enabled us to keep on growing, so seems like we have been doing the right thing all along. We will always continue to focus on our customers more than ever, as we know that you, our customers are our business lifeline.

To get our project started, we needed to do a huge renovation and we only have 6 weeks to do it to become licensed. Peter and his team came out and did all the sparky works for us. It was a huge huge task to complete within the time frame that we had. However, it didn't seem matter with the Trilect team at all. Without a doubt, they finished the job and helped get this project off the ground. Thanks, Pete and the team, we really appreciate what you did for us.

Hi Peter, Just thought I'd let you know. It's the second time our office manager has mentioned the great service your team provides when they come out here. Their attendance has also been really prompt. I am also aware that you assist our H & S team in electrical investigations which is also much appreciated. Leanne (National HSE Manager) always mentions how helpful you are during these times, so thank you for that. Have a great Xmas & New year.
