About Watkins Electrical: Maryborough Electrician Servicing Wide Bay

Watkins Electrical was established in 1951 by “Nutty” Watkins, a local sparky who ran the business alongside his wife, with a few employees and the occasional apprentice working with him to serve the local Maryborough community, which was much smaller at the time. Nutty was renowned for his quality service and dedication to perfection, and there’s still plenty of loyal customers we visit that had work done by Nutty himself back in the day.

After running the business for nearly three decades, Watkins transferred ownership of the business to one of his employees in 1977, who also ran the business as a husband and wife team until 1997, when he passed the business on to his son, Peter, who worked as an apprentice under both Watkins and his father. Peter, maintaining the business as a husband and wife team, steadily grew the business, taking on another director in 2002.

We’ve continued to grow over the past two decades to employ a team of nearly 20 staff, as well as expanding the business to a second physical location in Hervey Bay. This expansion of our operations has allowed us to offer a vast array of services to both commercial and residential customers. We’ve done all this whilst carrying on the quality workmanship that Nutty was famous for, all those decades ago.

Commitment to Quality Workmanship and Electrical Safety:

Due to the high precautions that need to be taken to ensure your electricity is safe to use, we inspect any existing electrical systems carefully and advise you on any upgrades that need to be made to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. Safety is our number one concern, and if you feel unsafe at any time because of a faulty electrical component, give us a call on our 24/7 emergency number to have a qualified professional come out and fix the problem.

When we speak to you on the phone or visit you for a quote, we listen carefully, ensuring that we take into account your budget and needs so we can make recommendations that are best suited to you.

All our electricians are Maryborough and Hervey Bay locals that are committed to the community. It is for this reason most of our clients are return customers. Please have a look at our project portfolio to see some of the work we’ve done over the years in the local community.
