About Thoroughtec Solar & Electrical

AS Electrical started 12 years ago trading as a sole Trader and quickly involved into a company of thoroughbreds. Over the years an excellent reputation was earned for domestic, commercial, and industrial electrical services as well as solar installations and data cabling. Andre's both sons, Brandon and Adrian, when finished their school career started out with Andre as two electrical apprentices.  Once passed their apprenticeships Brandon headed into the mechanical side of solar renewable energy while Adrian started specialising in customer care and sales.  We soon started realizing our reputation for quality workmanship, timely service, and competitive rates will be the hallmark of a successful service business in Adelaide.
