"Rob Norris and True North Electrical have been involved with Magpies Sporting Club in both construction and maintenance for the past 10 years. True North Electrical is responsible for all electrical maintenance to do with the club, including appliances and field lighting. True North Electrical was also commissioned during the stage renovation process spanning 2006 - 2008, which required work to be carried out with minimum trade interruption. True North Electrical was also commissioned to carry out function room renovations in 2011 under similar circumstances.
I have personally known Rob for 7 years. During this time I have found he and the service of True North Electrical to be professional and of a high standard at all times. I see no reason why Magpies Sporting Club would not continue to use him in the current maintenance capacity, and for any future developments undertaken."

"True North Electrical was the principal contractors for the recent lighting upgrade of John Bickmore Oval at Shark Park, Milton St, Mackay. This was a major infrastructure project undertaken by our club with support from the Queensland Government's Department of Communities, Sport and Recreation.
Work undertaken by True North Electrical included replacement and upgrade of switchboards, lighting towers, light fittings and associated equipment over a six month period.
A pleasing part of the works was the use of our facilities was not inconvenienced at any time during the works and we were able to continue operating in a normal manner at all times. This was a result of good consultation and planning by Rob and his team whilst also ensuring all safety requirements were met and exceeded.
Rob continues to provide good support after the works were concluded and we thoroughly recommend the services of True North Electrical.
