Marine business EAL Electric are proudly marking 30 years of excellence in business innovation this week.
Since 1986 the company has flourished from a one-man business to a fully staffed operation, garnering a host of accolades from their valued clients and supporters.
Backed by a highly skilled team with years of experience, husband and wife managers Warren and Jan Tait have built their reputation on quality and expertise as summed up by their mission statement ‘connecting precision to perfection’.
The 30-year milestone holds special meaning to the team that has been involved in over 200 superyacht refits as well as some of the world’s highest profile campaigns and race yachts.
“Warren and Jan have shown true professionalism in everything they do. Running a successful business with up to 24 employees takes specialist business skills in this day and age, which they have continued to demonstrate proficiency in. We have always appreciated their input and congratulate the business on reaching 30 years,” says NZ Marine Industry Association executive director Peter Busfield.
Excellence in innovation has evolved over three decades as the team has adapted their services across an extensive range of vessels including trailer boats, commercial boats, classic yachts, research vessels, and everything in between.
“Their culture of technical professionalism and cooperation remains without doubt their foundation for success and we are delighted to be associated with them. It is wonderful to have seen this company grow to be held in such high respect throughout the marine industry,” says McMullen and Wing managing director David Porter.
Adding to the long list of projects have been assignments on Sir Peter Blake’s catamaran ENZA, Whitbread and Volvo Ocean race yachts, Atlantic row boats and famous luxury yachts such as Shenandoah, Zenji, and Athena.
Recently EAL Electric gifted an electrical installation, with the generous support of local leading brand electrical suppliers, to the new Sea Cleaners Charitable Trust vessel.
“All the work carried out by EAL Electric was to an exceptionally high standard and we were so pleased with the support they gave us, enabling our boat to get on the water. The staff are approachable, professional, and the way they work as a team is a tribute to their efficiency,” says trust concept founder Hayden Smith.
EAL Electric has expanded in recent years to cater to residential and commercial sectors as well as opening up their products and services in offshore markets.
Originally known as Electrics Afloat Limited, the business rebranded to reflect this growth and modernisation in 2014.
Their commitment to excellence was reinforced by gaining ISO 9001 accreditation in 2013, ensuring company standards would remain high and the ability to deliver quality work would be assured to every customer.
“It’s really rewarding to see how far we’ve come. From small beginnings as one man working from the back of his van, Warren often jokes that he has trained many of the marine electricians in the industry today,” says Jan.
Jan’s vision for the future of EAL Electric is a bright one and she’s confident the business will remain in good hands.
“Hopefully I will have convinced Warren it’s time to retire before we clock up another 30 years. Who knows, our children could be running it by then.
“As well as seeing our range of quality New Zealand made LED light fittings embraced for export around the world, I’d love to see the company continue its growth on a global scale while remaining committed to providing excellent electrical solutions for our local market,” she says.
The team at EAL Electric would like to thank all their customers for their support over the years and are looking forward to the next three decades in business.
