Atkins Electricians was established in 1951 by Keith Frederick Atkins, a 33 year old electrician who had completed his electrical apprenticeship with Johns & Waygood Lifts and then spent years in Mount Iza working in the mines as an electrician. As his family grew larger, he decided it was time to work closer to home. He opened an electrical firm, which was run from his Gardenvale home just outside of Melbourne. Years went by and the Atkins Electrical service made its footprint. One out of six of Keith’s sons, John, decided to follow in his Dads footsteps. 10 years later, another son Mark joined the business.

John took over the family business in 1978. John, a keen fisherman and family man (five sons), took the business to the next level. Specialising in emergency electrical maintenance service predominantly focusing on Real Estate and Body Corporate groups around Bayside.

Mark Atkins joined as a partner in the late 90’s after working as an electrician for over 20 years. The two worked as a dynamic duo allowing the business to become what it is today.

The business now operates out of Cheltenham, with a team of 7 staff members, which includes Mark’s son Joel. And so the legacy continues.
