About Us

Our Story

Chris and Catherine McKillop embarked on the journey of starting up their new business McKillop Electrical Ltd in January 1984. From humble beginnings using their house and garage as their base and one vehicle, the business grew.

As both Chris and Catherine had lived in Putaruru since their childhoods, they were well known and before long work was flowing in. So much in fact that in 1985, they employed their first apprentice. That first employee was Mark Camp. In 1996 after completing his overseas travels, Mark and Cherie Camp brought 50% of the business.

That was to be the beginning of a big growth period for the Company and in 2003, they joined the Laser Franchise Group.
