Laser Electrical Ashburton
Brent and Megan Christie own and operate Laser Electrical Ashburton, under the company Christie Electrical Ltd and have also expanded to include branches in Rolleston, Geraldine and Temuka.
The original business - Christie Electrical Ltd was founded in 1980 by Les Christie who started out as an Electrical Contractor, and it was under his father's guidance that Brent completed his Electrical Apprenticeship. In 2003 the decision was made to join the Laser Electrical franchise which provided a strong national brand, "buying power" allowing a more competitive pricing environment, access to a stronger knowledge base and technical support and systems developed specifically for our trade. All of this combined gives an overall benefit to customers.
Their company vision is to continue to grow and develop a totally systemised, efficient and diverse business providing affordable and reliable solutions to all of their clients. Megan and Brent strive to maintain loyal and happy customers and in doing so continue to be the "employer of choice" for their staff. This is underpinned by their company values of Honesty, Integrity, Quality, Reliability and Trust. They encourage their team to keep up with industry knowledge and innovations and give opportunity to up skill wherever possible.
The company operates within structured divisions to ensure optimum skills, efficiency and service to their clients. With a total staff of over 50 and more than 40 vehicles and well spaced over the greater Canterbury region gives them the capability to complete any contract.
The head office is located on East Street in Ashburton where they have a large lighting and heating show room with all the latest innovations and ideas. The new Rolleston branch has state highway one presence and is co owned and managed by Zane Adams where he has an ever growing team working on projects all over the Christchurch City and surrounded areas. The other half of the building is tenanted by Laser Plumbing Christchurch West. Travis Smith manages the Geraldine & Temuka branches where they also have a variety of Residential, Commercial Rural & Dairy projects.
As the group of companies continue to grow and develop as market leaders in the electrical industry, Brent and Megan are totally proud of the dynamic, vibrant and energetic team which work together and have helped them achieve their award winning status including Electrical Member of the Year in 2007, 2009, & 2010, Ashburton Business Association Med/Lge Business of the Year in 2009 and 2009, 2010 Supreme Business of the Year Runner up, but their highest accolade was in 2010 being awarded the International Peter Bassett Laser Business of the Year a recognition they are very proud of.

Laser Electrical were integral to the success of the EA Networks Centre. No problem was too big with Brent, Sione and the entire team going above and beyond to ensure deadlines were met with workmanship of the highest standard."
Laser electrical were the main electrical contractor for the new EA Network centre and I would have to say that they have been one of the best operators I have ever had to deal with. The staff on site were amazing there was never any issue about carrying out work and they would always have an answer to problems if they appeared they also went well beyond what I have expected from a contractor and helped sort out wiring issues when needed. Sione and Josh need to be congratulated on their fantastic work ethic and problem solving ability. I would recommend Laser for any major project as they have all areas of the electrical areas covered."
