About Us

Dennis Ireland Switchboard


Our company has a long history in the region. Ron Whitcher started Whitcher Electrical Ltd in 1964 with 3 staff members under his wing. The company soon grew due to their well-known name and workmanship. In 1981, after Ron moved on, the remaining staff changed the company name to what is now Petone Electrical Ltd.

Originally, based out of the old Grand Cinema building on the corner of Jackson and Bay Street, the company moved into its current premesis on Victoria Street in 1998

The company has now been passed down from one of Ron’s employees, Dennis to his son Lee to carry on the legacy.

We now have a very established customer base that comes back to us time and time again for all manner of works.
