Greg and Donna's foray into the Laser Group began in 2006 when Greg was training as an electrical apprentice. Originally owned by a number of experienced qualified electricians and astute business operators, Greg and Donna made the decision to purchase the business outright, making Laser Electrical Motueka 100% owned and operated.
We are proud to have a high energy team of 11 - seven field staff and four in the operation team:
Greg is one of the directors, electrician and manages the electrical quotes for the team. He has been an electrician since 2004, and at Laser Electrical since 2005.
