Our History

Glen was 22 when the inception of power integration occurred. “I had a pulsar hatchback, a 4ft ladder in the back, a tool box and some eagerness to mix it up in the real world….”

“Prior to this though, I had my electrical apprenticeship to endure and complete. I earned an average 96% grade score on my tafe results, I was doing c-bus as a second year at the PA hospital and I soon had the nickname “wonder boy”. Partly because my father built and ran Electro Group Apprentices for whom I was employed through and partly because I questioned the norm and pushed the boundaries.”

“I was still a third year apprentice when I started my Electrical Contractors License (don’t tell anyone) and I really did not understand the gravity of that training until many years later.”

In 2004 power integration was born and Glen was doing house calls, service calls, air conditioning installs… “Basically anything from word of mouth or from family and friends. Any challenge was accepted and too many times I faced jobs that I had not even carried out before… I was only 22 after all so everything was new to me but I simply applied a common sense approach and utilised my skills to adapt to different circumstances.”

“My father joined the team (and by team I mean myself and one apprentice, Liam) in 2006 after giving up his long service leave to setup a company with me and the relevant documentation necessary to throw us into the big time, well so I thought at that stage.”

“Another few years went by and I still remember my first $13,000 quote for a house in Manly… I thought that was a huge deal! I subsequently won that job and went on to work with that builder for about three years until they went bust. That was our first hurdle and milestone to overcome!”

“11 years later and my 100 times bigger 1.3 million project is equally a big deal… It’s all relevant I guess as each new challenge stretches you just a little further and takes you to a new slightly uncomfortable stage… after which though it becomes the normal until the next challenge.”

“My brother in law also came on board for a critical three year stint until his departure in 2011. It was during Kent’s time with PI that we truly began to offer our integrated services approach, as in, one company to service the full aspect of the electrical and technology field. From electrician to IT guru!”

“Almost 15 years later and we have quite literally faced every up and down a business can face… but I love it. I have learned first hand what it takes to setup, implement and manage a systemised business, something that can last the test of time and that provides consistent, predictable and realisable results.

So where to? Well, we are just getting started and my team are taking it from here. We all need to realise our strengths and get out of our own way sometimes to allow new people to take the lead. We are here to create a truly innovative and disruptive business model and with the help of the current team, the future team and anyone who comes into contact with Power Integration… we will get there. Never a doubt.

Join us on a journey for the next 15 years… and into the future of connected technologies, digital tradesman and smart buildings.“My brother in law also came on board for a critical three year stint until his departure in 2011.
