Newport Electric embarks on new era in qathet region

Son takes helm from father, expands services and offers new solutions

As Newport Electric and Supply embarks on a new chapter with Raymund Newport at the helm, the company is innovating and expanding its services. Raymund, who has been a part of the family business since his teenage years, is set to take over from his father, Henry.

Newport Electric has more than two decades of electrical service, installation and maintenance expertise. Its team of professionals includes master electricians, electricians and electrical apprentices.

Each member brings a wealth of experience in both commercial and residential electrical work, including installing, testing, modifying and updating projects to meet current codes.

Adhering to the Canadian Electrical Code and BC Electrical Safety Regulations, Newport ensures all projects are executed with utmost safety and quality standards.

A recent addition, the supply shop, aims to cater to DIY enthusiasts and professional contractors.

"Not everybody can afford to hire an electrical company," explains Raymund. "We have everything you'd need for standard electrical work, and more.”

The shop's approach is to provide items quickly, often by the next day, addressing a significant need in the qathet region for readily available supplies. Newport emphasizes the convenience of having a local source for electrical components, a boon for individual and professional clients.

The supply shop is located at 7373 Duncan Street and operates like a parts desk. It is open on weekdays, with plans to extend hours over the weekend. Customers can contact the warehouse at 604.923.1192 with enquiries.

Newport offers a comprehensive range of high-quality services. Expertise encompasses renovation and custom build services, providing expert guidance for home renovations and unique electrical solutions for custom builds.

Staff also conducts thorough electrical inspections to identify safety hazards and specializes in heating and cooling system wiring for optimal home comfort. Extensive services are delivered in the commercial sector, including installation, maintenance and wiring.

“We are dedicated to ensuring efficient operation of business electrical systems, focusing on safety and reliability,” says Raymund.

Services include specialized HVAC wiring, ground fault and surge protection installations, and custom solutions for new builds and renovations.

“Our team is skilled in energy management and conservation, offering energy-efficient lighting solutions and 24/7 emergency services.”

Newport provides design and build services for industrial clients for plants and buildings, supply and installation of electrical equipment, and transformer installations and services. The company is adept at industrial repair and maintenance, emergency breakdown repairs and comprehensive lighting services, as well as specializing in PLC troubleshooting, UPS supply and installation and round-the-clock emergency industrial electrical services.

Newport  also explores off-grid solar systems, offering a path to energy independence. Due to rising energy costs, these systems operate independently from conventional power grids and are becoming increasingly popular.

“We guide clients through the nuances of off-grid versus grid-tied solar systems, emphasizing the advantages of solar power as a clean, reliable and cost-effective energy source,” explains Raymund. “This initiative contributes to sustainability and enhances residents' property values and energy independence.”

Raymund says he is committed to continuing the legacy of the business while bringing in new ideas and services.

“We look forward to providing our services in whichever way they may be needed,” he adds, “whether through parts or the electrical services we've been providing.”
