Max & Lesley Buchanan have been striving for over 30 years to develop a company of excellence.
A company that is financially sound and well respected and trusted by both customers and staff. A company that will aspire to be a leader in its fields of operation and sets examples that others seek to follow. A company that is accepted as an important part of the community – giving back to the community as the company grows.
To this end and from humble beginnings starting from rental domestic property and then to a small corner grocery store, an opportunity became available in 1980 when a long time family friend, Mr Charlie Begent, wished to retire from his small 3-staff electrical store in Charles Street, Launceston.
Mr Begent and his partner Mr Tony McGuire (then trading as Begent & McGuire) continued to be employed by the company for a futher two years to give the new owners time to gain the necessary knowledge and skills required to run this business.
At this time the business was turning over just under $1 million in sales per annum after commencing trading in 1970.
Other opportunities in the electrical retail industry were assessed or began to present themselves with the philosophy and criteria that any expansion should be undertaken only after quantifiable market research, keeping any borrowings below a pre-determined percentage of overall assets and wherever possible, by purchasing our own properties.
