About Us

The Contact Group has evolved from the growth of our Contact Electrical businesses. The electrical industry is currently in a fast paced innovative space with new advancements in current technology happening almost daily. We saw the need to make our customers aware that we offer so much more than lights and PowerPoints. As a result the “Contact Group” was established which has enabled our business to put individual focus on our diverse range of services. Contact Group has divisions or business streams that allows the customer to easily understand what our diverse company can offer. Our divisional mangers ensure each business stream has the experienced, well trained staff required to ensure our quality of workmanship is maintained as a benchmark.

The Contact Group is proud to be a solely Tasmanian owned business employing Tasmanians and stimulating the Tasmanian economy.

Our Contact Electrical business was founded in Launceston, in 1986. We’ve gradually expanded over the years and now have offices in Hobart and Burnie, as well as our head office in Launceston.

Our workload is a mixture of industrial, commercial and domestic. Within these areas there are many specialty facets. It is for this reason we created specific division within the Contact Group.

We specialize in design and construct projects, our design team consists of electrical engineers and qualified building practitioners. We work alongside architectural companies to achieve the optimum outcome for our customers. We also have a large team of technicians working in our residential service area. This includes the installation of heating systems, heat pumps, house rewiring and home automation. Our domestic electricians are Aurora trained for heat calculations.
