Ted Edwards and Ted Cook (both now deceased) originally formed E&C Electric as a partnership in 1959. John Elliott joined the company in 1963 and the company was incorporated in 1964. John took over the company in 1978 and began to steer it towards becoming the successful company it is today. In 1984 his son, Antony, joined the company and worked his way up from Junior Technician to become the General Manager who was responsible for the day-to-day operation of the company. Steve Day moved in from the field and became our Operations Manager in the mid 1990’s and continues to manage our service work. With John’s retirement in 2009, Antony assumed the role of Managing Director and continued to reinforce the standards and ethos established by John.
