The Story of ABC Electrical
The story of ABC Electrical is very much a story of the growth of southeast Queensland. In particular a story of the fast growing Logan City region. Modern Logan City’s story began in 1979 when it was declared a city on January 1st 1981. Three years after that our founder, Peter, established ABC Electrical under a house in the Logan City suburb of Kingston.
A motor re-winder and Electrician by trade, Peter expanded the business from electric motor rewinds, power tool repairs and electrical contracting to also include domestic home appliance repairs (white goods). It was at this stage the company required a workshop and staff to keep up with the growing number of job requests. The workshop was in Moss Street, Slacks Creek which is still the main hub for many types of industry in Logan City. After only 10 months in Slacks Creek he had outgrown the workshop. The company needed to move again and relocated to Central Court, Browns Plains.
Four years after starting business Peter had to expand the company again and so rented a workshop in Tradelink Road, Hillcrest. Over the next 11 years Peter had gone into Air Conditioning Repairs and Installations and also VCR, stereo and television repairs (brown goods). In 1998 – you guessed it – growth had outgrown the workshop at Tradelink Road and Peter moved the company to its current location at 2/55 Eastern Road, Browns Plains. With approximately 600 square metres of floor and office space the company is still growing. As the population of Logan City and Brisbane grows so have our service areas; which have increased to include not only Logan City and the Southside but also the Bayside, Northside, Western suburbs, Ipswich and the Gold Coast.
On the back of positive growth, the move to Eastern Road was a great success! The appliance repair side of the business continued to grow and we attracted keen and highly skilled tradespeople and administrative staff. Our reputation for Prompt, Reliable and Professional service grew within our service areas and we continued to consolidate our skills and standards of service. ABC Electrical was one of the first companies to build in the now central area of the bustling Browns Plains Village Square retail and commercial complex.
Watching the busy Eastern Road precinct grow around us we now provide complete in-home electrical services to most suburbs in Brisbane City, Ipswich City and the Western suburbs as well as Logan City, Bayside (Redlands Shire) and the Gold Coast.
The appliance repair and electrical industries have changed so much since we started in 1984 that they are now unrecognisable. Adapting to the challenges that change brings, ABC Electrical has nevertheless continued grow. Peter could not have come this far without the great and hard working team of electricians, technicians, administrative staff and you – ABC Electrical’s valued customers.
ABC Electrical look forward to providing you, our Southeast Queensland community, with Prompt, Reliable and Professional service into the future.
THANK YOU! You are what has made Our Story possible.
