James Marshall, Owner, Marshall Electrical Limited
James started his apprenticeship in Hamilton in 2005, specialising in large scale construction - including opportunities in the construction of Braemar Hospital, Thames Hospital, Huntly Countdown and Ibis Hotel.
He was also involved in the planned maintenance and shutdown of the turbines at the Huntly Power Station.
A move to Australia saw James work in a company working as their sole breakdown/serviceman before he headed to work in the mines.
While at the mines James worked in the construction of the processing plants which started in Jimblebar Newman in Western Australia (an Iron Ore plant for BHP), to Wollebee Creek in Queensland (Gas plant for the QCLNG project), back to Brisbane for the construction of 'legacy way' underground car tunnel, to Chinchilla (Gas Plant for QCLNG project), to Roma building large substation switchyards for UGL (LNG gas project), then finally to Barrow Island off the west coast of Australia for the largest gas project in Australia.
Moving back to Te Kuiti to be close to his wife's family, James worked with a local company until he started his own business.
Outside of the business, James spends his spare time with his wife Lisa, and their children, enjoying sports, time at the beach and diving. He's also a loyal supporter of the Warriors, Chair on the Board of Trustees of Pukenui Primary School.
James is proud to be involved in the local community.
