Electrosmith Directors

The Electrosmiths was started up in Australia by Lionel and Gareth in 2006 after their decision to migrate to Australia. The establishment of this company in Australia constitutes the new antipodean chapter of their very successful partnership which has been nurtured over the last 20 years in Southern Africa, where they jointly ran a successful switchboard manufacturing and switchgear distribution operation.

Electrosmith Directors

Both directors have extensive experience in the different facets of electrical design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of electrical plant in various applications. Together with their commitment to excellence and their ability to deliver, this knowledge has become self-evident to their expanding client base.

Prior to opening the company in 2006, Lionel and Gareth worked separately in leading australian switchboard manufacturing and electrical commissioning companies to gain the necessary local experience from which they could establish their australian switchboard operation. This approach has enabled them to rapidly establish the electrosmiths as a player in the switchboard manufacturing sector of Australia and position it on its current growth path.
