About Us

Hi my name is Peter O'Connell. I have lived in Pukekohe for over 36 years now. My wife Kathy and I now have an extended family with our  2 sons and a daughter and 7 beautiful grandchildren. My home town was Napier for 21 years before I moved north to Hamilton to further my studies at Hamilton Poly-Tech in 1973. I met my wife on the job at the railways in Frankton in 1975. we were married in 1977 and later moved further north to Auckland rail for a few years. Then came the move to the Franklin district in 1981. I worked at NZ Steel for 26 years, the last 10 of those years was as head Electrician at the Mioro Mine Site. A great job but I felt the need for a change after so long with the company. After one year in real estate sales I realised I missed my tool box and the joy of fixing things. I started Volts Electrical in 2008 and my business continues to grow. I converted my business to a company in 2012. So far I have seen three of my staff trained to qualified Electricians. At present I have one other tradesman working with me. Tyler. He is a great asset to Volts Electrical. You could not want for a better employee. I also have two apprentices (Kavish and Brady) so we are able to get the job done. Tyler has been with us for 5 years now. Our apprentices are progressing well. I enjoy mentored these young men to becoming accomplished electricians.

I insist on safe and good quality work practices. We pride ourselves in being very trustworthy and honest around your home and we consider it a privilege to work for you. 

We are members of the Electrical Contractors Association New Zealand (ECANZ Master Electricians). I have served on the committee as a representative for the Pukekohe District of ECANZ. This organisation gives us the backing and support we need if required and they give you the customer peace of mind. Being a member of ECANZ also gives you a $20,000 workmanship guarantee. So if you think we are the trades people for you, please don't hesitate to give me a call on 0274 857 857 or office 09 238 1115, thank you.  Our team look forward to working with you.
