How it All Began...

The previous owner, Dennis Westdorp, began his electrical career in 1977 in Campbell River after completing his training at Camosun College in Victoria. He spent several years employed with Pulp and Sawmills around the Island. During his training in Victoria, Dennis came to appreciate the beauty of the city and sensed the business opportunities there and in 1992, in order to ensure employment, he started Texel Electric.

His background in industrial electrical gave him a head start in the business community.
