Nickel Electric has been part of the Brandon business community since 1974. As new owners have taken over the company, the goal is to continue to build on the great reputation that they’ve had for more than four decades.
“Nickel Electric started out with just three employees. The company has grown and its reputation has been built on providing great customer service and quality electrical work,” says Shannon McLean-Geletchuk, Owner/Office Administration. “We plan to continue down that path as we all pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and we wish Len all the best in his retirement.”
Shannon and her husband Darren Geletchuk bought into the company in 2015 and more recently Justin and Alanna Hermary, as well as Ken Mott and Lisa Rowley, joined in as partners. Darren, Justin, and Ken are all experienced Red Seal Journeymen Electricians.
As a COR certified company, Nickel Electric provides full-service electrical contracting for residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial projects throughout the Westman region. During the peak construction season, they will employ as many as 20 people.
In addition, they’ve been watching the trends and interest in solar energy in Manitoba and will offer services in that as well. And, as a company, they themselves are taking advantage of the benefits.
“Once all the snow is gone, we will be installing solar panels on the roof of our building to offset the electrical costs in the shop and the office. It’s something we believe in, plus this will allow us to use our own panels as a display model,” said Shannon.
“With electricity rates going up, more and more people are looking into solar power to offset costs. When spring comes, we’ll hit the ground running and will be ready to start installations for our clients as well.”
