Paul started his electrical apprenticeship with Victor Brown Electrical in 2003. The last in a long line of apprentices to complete his training under the tutelage of his father Geoff Maxwell.

Victor Brown Maxwell - Boss dog

People often ask us, “who is Victor Brown?” Now we can point to our 2 year old Border Terrier and it lets people put a face to the name. Victor can often be found at the workshop on Hillside Road or riding shotgun in Paul’s ute.
He always keeps his eyes on things.

Great advice, followed up with top-notch service. Our house has been warm and dry since they installed a Smartvent system.
