Caring Power Solutions
Anthony Willemsen has always liked knowing how things work – especially anything electrical. So, he decided to study electrical computer engineering at uni. Complex theories are well and good but Anthony wanted to take the knowledge he was learning and put it to work in a really practical, hands-on way.
That’s when he decided to become an electrician. While Anthony was enjoying solving complex problems as an electrician, there were some aspects of the industry that he wasn’t enjoying so much, like work cultures that focused too much on:
- Getting a job done as quickly as possible at the expense of better long-term solutions
- Being tough, strong, indifferent and invulnerable at the expense of being kind, helpful, careful and innovative
- Scaling businesses as quickly as possible at the expense of having well-trained staff, a positive company culture and a commitment to reducing the environmental impacts of the industry
Then in 2013, he had an idea: “Why not create my own business where caring is seen as a strength?” Heart Electrical was born.
Like the experience of most small business owners, the first year was a lot of hard work, but Anthony was determined. Steadily, he has built a strong word-of-mouth reputation for his business: one that’s built on caring and excellence.
