Supporting Rural
Canterbury Since 1975

Nairn Electrical is a locally owned family business that has been operating in rural Canterbury since 1975. Originally started by the Nairn brothers of Leeston, Gary Roxburgh joined in 1980 and became a partner in 1986. Major growth started in the mid 90’s with the company finding a niche providing quality irrigation and dairy installs as well as municipal pumping controls used by local councils.

During this period Steve West started his apprenticeship (1993), followed soon after by Dave McCartin (1996), then a year later by Brad Beswick and Eden Partridge. All 4 remain with the company and are a testament to the long, loyal service that has become a feature of the Nairn Electrical team. The majority of the current team of 45 have been with the company for 10 years or more enabling us to provide unrivalled knowledge, experience and service to our customers.

In the mid 2000’s Nairns grew their footprint into North Canterbury, acquiring Ray Dyer Electrical in Rangiora. Jonathan Hawkes started his apprenticeship in 1984 with Ray Dyer and is still with Nairns today. A few years after Nairn Electrical ventured north Simon Francis joined us, becoming an integral part of the North Canterbury team.

Now owned by Gary Roxburgh, Steve West, Brad Beswick, and Simon Francis, Nairn Electrical prides itself on remaining local, supporting local and employing local.
