Electricity is In Our Blood

Affordable Electrical is owned and operated by Murray Ford – a third generation electrician from a line of reputable Tauranga electrical contractors. Back in the 1970s Murray’s father, Ronald Ford, and uncle, Maxwell Ford, started Ford Electrical. At just eight years of age, Murray started learning the fundamentals of being an electrician and never looked back.

Other sparkies in the family include Murray’s brother, three of Murray’s uncles and a number of cousins. And if that wasn’t enough, Murray’s last living uncle, David Ford (age 75), still potters about in the original business, to a slightly lesser degree…

But it’s Murray’s grandfather, Andrew Ford, who steals the show as one of the first electricians in New Zealand at the turn of the century (with a registration number of only 12!).

Why would you go anywhere else for your electrical work? Affordable Electrical have a strong reputation for being the best electrical contractors in Tauranga and have been in the electrical business for 55+ years.
