Electel is an electrical contracting business that was established in August 1985 by Howard Truin and 3 other local electricians from Traralgon and first operated out of a small shed from home until a small workshop was rented in Head Street.
Since 1996, Electel has been owned and operated by the Truin family. Sadly Howard passed away in May 2016 and the company is now managed by 2 of Howard and Sally’s children, Steve & Christine, with 12 employees, one being a third generation of the Truin family, Benjamin.
As business grew, the company moved a further 3 times and then purchased a building and land at 169 Argyle Street, Traralgon and has operated out of this building since 2006.
In 2015, business had grown substantially and it was decided that it was time to expand. The vacant block that was used as a tank display yard now houses a brand new building which was officially opened on 28 th July, 2017. The expansion combining the old with the new to look like one whole brand new showroom.
