About Us

DNA Electrical was founded by Damien and Andrea Hoareau back in 2008, with Josh Cross joining the ownership team in 2015. Our goal was to create a highly professional electrical contracting company that people could rely on for the best possible installation and service. Since then our business has grown considerably and continues to grow due to our dedicated professional team and the great service we provide.

Our core values are Quality, Capability, and Reliability; three values that are truly at the core of everything we do. No matter whether you need our services for a brief 1 hour service visit, or six months on site we will make sure Quality, Capability and Reliability are at the forefront of the service and installation we deliver.

We have structured our business to ensure you are receiving service from a team member well experienced in the type of work you require. We have a team of electricians focusing on Servicing & Maintenance works, electricians focusing on Residential project work (such as renovations and new builds), and teams looking after our Commercial project work. As well as this we have expertise in Security, Access Control and Automation and Electrical Inspection services.

DNA Electrical is based on Auckland’s beautiful North Shore, and services the entire Auckland area as well as north of Auckland in areas such as Warkworth, Matakana, Snells Beach, Algies Bay and Omaha.

We are members of Master Electrician’s NZ and Site Safe.
