Owner Kyle Potter Combines Work Ethic, A Talented Team And Dedicated Service To Make His Company A Favorite In Central Vancouver Island
NANAIMO – Kyle Potter began his journey at Walls Electrical a decade ago, joining former owner Chris Williams, who had struck out on his own after a previous business partnership.
Kyle had already been an electrician since 1997 at that point.
“I started my apprenticeship in Edmonton in my early twenties, and worked there for a few years before returning to BC,” Kyle explains.
When Chris decided to retire, he left his business in the capable hands of Kyle, who purchased Walls Electrical in 2014. Kyle was motivated to take his new company to new heights, making it a greater success than it already was.
“In the time I have owned Walls Electrical, we have tripled the amount of sales, and have been voted 3rd best in the ‘Best of the City Awards‘ two years in a row, and 2nd best this year,” Kyle proudly notes.
He did so by offering a strong worth ethic, combined with some of the best employees in the industry.
“Probably the biggest challenge we have faced has been finding hardworking, knowledgeable, quality employees,” explains Kyle. “I feel with our current crew, we have achieved just that.”
Kyle and his highly-skilled Red Seal journeyman electricians handle an enormous variety of services for customers in Nanaimo, and everywhere between Duncan and Qualicum Beach.
“We currently staff five journeymen, three apprentices and one office staff member. We have five fully-equipped work vans, and a thirty-five foot, custom-built bucket truck. We’re prepared for anything our customers need.”
Walls Electrical and its team of licensed electricians offer industrial, commercial, residential, and new construction electrical services, including repairs, inspections, and upgrades. Everything from handling major rewiring projects, replacing bathroom light fixtures and repairing furnace malfunctions, to replacing older technology with new, more energy efficient lighting systems, and much more, with 24-hour emergency electrical service to boot.
States Kyle, “We have the tools, crew and experience to address any electrical issue.”
Walls Electrical is also in good standing with Worksafe BC, and carries $5 million in insurance coverage. This, combined with their commitment to providing cost-effective, expert workmanship has made them a trusted favorite amongst businesses, homeowners and industrial clientele alike.
Kyle and crew aren’t content to rest on their current reputation, however, aiming to improve and expand the service and expertise Walls Electrical provides Island residents.
Elaborates Kyle, “We are looking not only to grow as a company, but grow our skill set as well. Some of our journeymen are scheduled to take courses on solar installations as we go further into smart homes, for instance. Keeping up to date on training not only improves our skills, but is also a great way to bring more potential business into the company and provide even better service to our current and future customers.”
