100% New Zealand Owned and Operated.

Since 1986

We've been putting in the hard yards and providing next-level service all the way back since Dave Cole and Alan Bull first started Advance Electrical with just one branch in a small shed in Montgomery Crescent, Upper Hutt.

Since then we've grown to 7 branches covering Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Porirua, Palmerston North and our newest store (opening just weeks before Covid) in Kapiti.  We've keep to our roots though with our support office still based in Upper Hutt.

We're extremely proud to be 100% locally owned and operated by a team of shareholders who all work in the company. 

 



We have a very strong industrial bent and are currently the largest supplier to the commercial fit out business in Wellington.

Our staff and owners hold a wealth of experience and knowledge.  Our expert team can assist you in choosing brands from our hand-picked selection of components that offer the best quality to our customers.
