Following their success in the 2018 APAC Excellencewhere theywere awarded the title Leading Electrical Service Provider of the Year 2018 Australia, we invitedOwner Brett Singh to talk us through the secrets behind the firm’s success. 1809AP05 Since its inception back in the 1980s, Marathon Electrical has been offering professional electrical contracting services carried out by highly skilled and qualified electricians to clients in and around the Gippsland Region of Victoria. Brett discusses how the firm has evolved since inception into the success it is today. “Marathon Electrical commenced as a small family business but quickly outgrew our premises and partnership status. This necessitated us becoming a Company and relocating to our new purpose built office/ workshop complex of 430m2. From our modern well-equipped depot and showroom premises in Sale, we offer our clients a full range of quality services carried out by fully qualified electricians. Using the most up- to-date methods and technology available, we can take care of all types of electrical issues. “The area in which we now operate is sandwiched between ninety-mile beach and the Victorian High country. We have farming communities, and off shore there are gas and oil reserves and mining in the hills. Our area also includes a large RAAF base and many large regional towns and cities yet within three hours’ drive to Melbourne. In addition to this, it is also a major holiday destination. This gives us a wide and diverse range of clients, all of whom receive the very highest standard of service when they work with us.” This high standard of service includes a 24/7 emergency callout service, as well as the firm’s knowledgeable and friendly staff, all of whom work diligently to ensure that clients receive the service and support they need. Brett discusses the importance of the Marathon Electricals’ staff and how they work to ensure that clients always receive an approachable, expert service. “Here at Marathon Electrical, our dedicated team of electricians and administration staff have worked on numerous high profile building projects over many years and continue to provide the highest levels of customer service and support to many more. From homeowners to big businesses, we value every one of our customers. “Being an Australian Company gives our employees the opportunity to have a real work/ life balance. As a group they enjoy the outdoor lifestyle which includes fishing, four-wheel driving, camping, sports etc. We also have rostered days off which means they have many more long weekends than most countries. This combined with the Australian climate means our employees are happy, fit and healthy which shows in their work ethics. “In addition, in order to provide the very highest standards of service to our clients, we lead the way at the cutting edge of the latest industry developments. Our employees are regularly sent on courses to not only update their skills but to learn new skills, ensuring that they are able to implement the latest technology and techniques to support our clients.” This focus on innovation and providing clients with the service they need is what truly sets Marathon Electrical apart from the rest, as Brett concludes. “Ultimately, Marathon Electrical is committed to offering a diverse range of solutions to meet the ever-evolving needs of our clients.
