P&R-side-counter-view-artHistory

P&R Electrical is a family owned business that prides itself on exemplary quality and service. Founded in 1977 by George Pappas and George Rhigas the business has risen to become one of the largest independent electrical wholesale networks in Australia. We remain proudly South Australian owned and committed to serving the needs of the local marketplace.

Operations

P&R Electrical operates an extensive network that encompasses 15 branches across South Australia’s regional and metropolitan areas. With over 30,000 products on offer and access to all the leading international suppliers and manufacturers of trade electrical products, P&R Electrical has the capacity to service the needs of any commercial operation big or small.

Service

The cornerstone of P&R Electrical business philosophy is quality service. P&R Electrical in its formative years led the way with weekend trading hours and by offering an industry first drive thru warehouse; it was these early customer focussed initiatives that set P&R apart from its competitors. P&R Electrical has always put customers first and reacted to the needs of the market before its own.

Suppliers

P&R Electrical has since 1977 formed working relationships with the biggest and best electrical suppliers and manufacturers. These supplier relationships offer us exceptional terms of trade, which allows us the flexibility to offer competitive pricing across a huge range of the best quality products. We are also committed to supporting Australian owned companies and Australian made products and wherever possible will provide customers the option to buy locally made.

Staff

We consider quality staff to be our most valuable asset and we focus on hiring the best possible people to service our branches. At P&R Electrical we also focus on ensuring all our staff are well trained and equipped with industry knowledge. Tradesmen are the experts in their field and we endeavour to be the experts in ours. By offering not only prompt service but informed trade specific advice we think our staff can add value to your purchasing experience and become a partner in your success.
