Cablewise: Our history and ethos

Cast your mind back to 2001. iPhones were still 6 years away, Linkin Park and Shaggy were hot competition for the highest-selling CD, and the first Harry Potter movie was released in cinemas.

And in November of that year, a new Perth commercial electrician came on the scene. Cablewise Electrical and Communications Pty Ltd first focussed on minor fit-outs and maintenance work. Over time our projects grew in scale as Cablewise electricians and contractors earned a reputation for excellent work, honest pricing and outstanding service.

How to choose a commercial electrician in perth - cablewise

From 2001 to today

Fast forward 20 years and Cablewise is counted among Perth’s best commercial electricians, trusted by large, medium and small companies alike. Our directors who launched the company are still hands-on with the business. And our founding values still guide everything we do:






Our Mantra for Success

The 5 Cablewise values are best summed up by our mission statement:

Cablewise will excel in the delivery of high-quality service, focusing on strong relationships.

We have worked hard over the years to build relationships with local clients, helping businesses grow and adapt as the business world changes. We have strong relationships with leading global suppliers like Clipsal by Schneider Electric, Panduit, Molex and ADC Krone. We are always looking for innovations that put our clients ahead, such as cloud-based metering and energy management and structured data cabling systems to power business at light-speed.

But above all else, we remain focussed on delivering value for our clients and building authentic relationships.

We know there are many electrical contractors in Perth claiming to be the best. What matters to us here at Cablewise is earning our clients’ trust, delivering the highest quality service, and chasing innovation at every opportunity.

Standing the Test of Time

Transparency and authenticity are so important to the Cablewise team. We know that when we approach a job this way, our clients are confident they are getting the best results – and the best possible pricing.

All our clients can expect honest dealings and transparent communication:

  • Line-by-line cost breakdowns
  • Regular progress updates
  • Clarity on costs, quotes, and pricing methods
  • Realistic delivery expectations
  • Expert project management

It is this approach to doing business with honesty that has allowed Cablewise to grow from a small electrical contractor to a 40-person team.

Taking the Long-term View

Over 20 years in the business we have supported hundreds of clients with safe, high quality, future-ready work. At the same time, we invest in employee development on an individual basis.

Looking long-term means our people grow with the business, so our clients benefit from consistent service. As a leading Perth commercial electrician we believe in growing our local economy, investing in a highly trained workforce, and supporting WA business with honest pricing. It’s just one of the reasons Cablewise are the trusted electrical contractors for government departments, commercial offices, universities, medical practitioners, industrial outfits, and private companies of all sizes.

So the world may have moved on since 2001, but our approach to doing business has stayed grounded in honesty, transparency, and results. Give us a call to find out what that can mean for your business.
