The Hills Electrical and Wiring Solutions story
Hills is a 3rd-generation family business started by Leslie and Sheila Hill when Leslie returned from national service.
It began life as Hill’s Radio And Electrical, a Radio Repair and Sales business selling records and the like based in Haberfield.
Switched on electricians
Leslie responded to the postwar housing boom by focusing on working as an electrician. Their son Robert starting working with his father at the age of 16. They were quite the team!
Robert ushered in a new era for Hills Electrical, building a strong relationship with Meadowbank Homes that is still going strong. He also worked with other builders such as Wetzlar. Robert was a tremendous electrician who worked very hard over his 37 years putting in extremely long hours.
Leslie retired but continued to make the neatest switchboard panels in Sydney in his garage for Robert as well as coming in to help out on some days.
Fast forward to the next generation
in 1997 Robert’s son Peter joined the business and started an Electrical Apprenticeship. During their years together, Robert taught Peter the importance of understanding the rule books and the importance of working to a strict system to achieve an excellent job all the time.
Robert retired and Peter became the managing director in 2009 and studied Home Theatre and Sound Dynamics. The business now became known as Hills Electrical And Wiring Solutions with a continued close association with Meadowbank Homes.
Peter expanded the business, taking on his own apprentices and working closely with Richard Creighton from RJC Constructions who engaged Hills for two large jobs in Mosman.
Peter and his team learnt the world of Automation such as CBUS systems, large data networks and the integration of all facets of the home.
Through working on large homes built of concrete and brick, and meeting the new demands of Wi Fi connectivity, have brought new challenges and new solutions and Hill has built a strong reputation for excellent workmanship, integrity and sophisticated solutions.
