LOCAL BUSINESS SUCCESS STORY

Industry recognition for dedication
TERRY COLLINS
WHEN Robert Theodoridis established Sydney Electrical Contractors in 2013 he had high hopes.


“I had been working as a sole trader prior to that but decided to take the plunge and form a company,” he said.
 
“I always had visions of reaching various milestones as I have always been meticulous in my work, and a lot has certainly happened for the company, particularly in the past 12 months.”
 
The most recent thing to happen for Sydney Electrical Contractors was picking up a Certificate of Commendation at the recent NECA 2018 Excellence Awards in the category of Small Contracting Business.
 
Recognition from NECA (National Electrical and Communications Association) is extremely prestigious.
 
“Just to be nominated was wonderful,” Mr Theodoridis said. “We certainly didn’t expect to win – just to be narrowed down from the 1000 or so entrants to be named a finalist blew me away.
 
“And collecting that award in front of 1000 at Star Casino was mind-blowing.”
 
The project for which the company took the award was the for work completed at 24/7 Fitness at Westpoint, Blacktown.
 
“I think the judges were impressed that we were able to reduce running costs for the owner and also set it up so he can run the gym remotely from anywhere in the world,” Mr Theodoridis said.
 
Client relations
 
With almost 15 years’ experience in the electrical and communications industry prior to establishing the company, Mr Theodoridis now has two other electricians on staff as well as a client relations and quality manager, a marketing executive, and an SEO specialist.
 
The small team has grown through hard work, dedication and perseverance, achieving several milestones in recent years.
 
These include completing specialised training and obtaining a level 2 electrical licence which enables Sydney Electrical Contractors to work on electricity networks owned by Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy (categories 2A, 2B, 2C & 2D).
 
“We have also gained ISO Accreditation for Quality, Environmental, OH&S Management Systems which shows our commitment to professionalism and providing the best quality work to our clients and businesses right across Sydney,” Mr Theodoridis said.
 
Sydney Electrical Contractors provides a broad variety of services for domestic, commercial and property maintenance sectors and strives to be a one stop shop for all electrical work including new homes, granny flats, commercial fit-outs, preventative maintenance programs, renewable solar energy installations, storage batteries and much more.
 
The company is a member of the Blacktown Business Chamber and Bella Vista Alliance Chambers which help unite and bring local business together in Western Sydney.
 
Mr Theodoridis has been invited to speak on several occasions about the industry and regularly writes articles educating people on how to save energy, renewable power and new innovative products on the market.
 
The NECA Excellence awards are the most prestigious awards offered in the electrotechnology industry and celebrate excellence in quality, technology, innovation, management, WHS and commercial expertise.
