All About Me

Hi, my name’s Jimmy and here’s a little story about how I got to where I am today.

I left high school in grade 11 to work with my dad as a carpenter. The thought of being an electrician hadn’t yet crossed my mind. I worked as a carpenter and estimator in the building trade until the age of 31. At this mature age, I started an apprenticeship with a good friend at NLS Electrical. Working closely with a highly qualified electrician for 2 years my brain was overflowing with so much knowledge.

After that venture, I moved onto a commercial electrical company called Suncorp Electrical for 1 year. Then finished off my apprenticeship with West Electrical for my last year, who shared all his wisdom with me.

MC Power was born

I started up MC Power Electrical Services in 2013. Just like any new business, it’s challenging and very risky starting from nothing. Fortunately, I had lots of amazing friends and family in the building industry to guide me through it all and give me a little nudge when needed.

I’ve been a qualified, licensed Gold Coast electrician now for 10 years and still loving every minute of it! Sure, there are hard times, but it keeps things interesting. The easiest project I’ve done would have to be changing a light switch, with the most difficult being when I worked at the Meriton Apartments in Broadbeach (5 x 16 hour days). It was a HUGE job! My team and I did a metering upgrade for the high rise, we worked in conjunction with a big Sydney based company. We even had to close down half of the high rise at a time while we reconfigured the wiring from a multi meter complex to a single meter complex. It was insane, but we got it done swiftly and as efficiently as possible. 

The team and I at MC Power are ready to tackle small, medium and BIG jobs. We’re tidy, highly skilled and can do almost everything electrical. Simply call us on 0432 022 294 for a FREE quote today.
