O'Brien Electrical & Plumbing Vermont Expands its Operations to Form O'Brien Electrical & Plumbing Grange
26 May 2022
We’d like to congratulate Phill and Lisa Craig on their decision to expand their operations into the South Australian market to form O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Grange. The husband and wife duo currently own and operate O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Vermont in Victoria and joined the network in 2006 (as the first Member in the plumbing network in Australia).
Ben Seedon, Plumbing Service Manager for O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Grange says “There was an opportunity for Phill to expand the business into Adelaide as I was moving cities from Melbourne to Adelaide to live closer to family. The business decision to move into the SA market made sense as we could service some of our national clients locally in each city. I’m excited to continue to provide our current clients with quality workmanship and service, and to now expand our services in our local area to make a positive impact in the local Grange community.”
The expansion into the South Australian market was the next logical step for Phill and Lisa with the business specialising in commercial electrical & plumbing maintenance, general works, emergency plumbing and air conditioning; the business has established its electrical and plumbing team over the past 2.5 years and is steadily growing both trades.
Shawn Tracey, Head of Network Growth for O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing says “Phill and Lisa have proven themselves as great business operators but also as Members who are invested in the betterment of the O’Brien network and brand. They have seen consistent growth within their O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Vermont business while building future value for their employees by expanding their business footprint. Phill and Lisa’s commitment to expansion within O’Brien is exciting and a real testament to the hard work they’ve both put in over the years.”
Iain Hunter, Area Manager for SA and WA says “O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Vermont’s expansion into SA with the establishment of O’Brien Electrical & Plumbing Grange’s operation recognises the opportunity to build the value proposition of the O’Brien/Laser group. Adding their unique skills, resources and personalities to our SA Network Hub increases the wealth of our collective family of businesses. We look forward to their contribution to our overall growth and culture as we move into a new period of prosperity.”
