What our clients say

"The by-pass pumping system that was put in place at Pump Station 15 was successful in buying us a window of approximately 30 hours while we undertook works on a failed pressure main pipe exiting the pump station. Thanks for the quick application and mobilisation to carry out the electrical works and for the enthusiasm and effort relating to the required works on site. All components relating to the electrical system were implemented intelligently and efficiently, there was also some troubleshooting required under pressure in order to achieve the desired result. The commitment and skillset has played a huge part in achieving a great result for all involved."

Chris Pinion/CityCare

"Thank you for your professionalism in getting the job quoted and clearly understood along with the good communication with start dates working in with my builder. I think your choice in guys to do the job is bang on. Ewan is a true asset to Aotea in the way he conducts himself, nothing was a problem and he always made you feel comfortable in the way he approached the rewire. I know as a business person how hard it is to find good staff like this who clearly love their job and have a clear problem-solving mind. The job to date hasn’t been the massive disruption my family and I were expecting, so we are all grateful for that too. Full credit where credit is due!" 

Mark Harrison/Operations Manager, Cooltainer

"I would like to extend my gratitude to your team for a job well done. Both guys had a frustrating day and when asked to go the extra mile to keep our plant on, they did not hesitate. More than that, they remained cheerful and helpful throughout. You have every reason to be proud of the culture I saw on Tuesday."

Pete Waller/Fonterra

"Big thanks yet again for the great work today. As per usual everything went quickly and smoothly. Please pass my thanks on to your team."

Adele Brown/Christchurch City Council

"Aotea Electric Canterbury carries out their work in a professorial manner, keeping communication open and clear at all times. They operate in a fuss and problem-free manner. I thank Aotea for allowing Andrew to peruse this position on our team and assist with the deconstruction project. Given the support your company has given to us and to rugby in the region, it is fitting that Andrew and Aotea are involved with one of the largest demolition projects undertaken in New Zealand."
