JLE have performed very well on the Port Taranaki fire protection upgrade project. They faced similar challenges that all electrical contractors do, which is that they can’t really get stuck into their work until the civil and mechanical disciplines have substantially completed their work. JLE looked to complete work early wherever this was possible to minimize the impact later in the project, and when the inevitable timeline crunch came at the end of the project, JLE were very proactive at sourcing additional manpower resources from wherever they could find them to ensure that the project deadline was met. In addition to providing additional resources when the timeline crunch came, JLE were very good at identifying issues early and providing suggested solutions to address the issues. (JLE offers) Good communication skills and operate with high levels of integrity, which makes the contractual administration easier to undertake. (JLE is an) Excellent contractor with proactive and focused staff, supervisors and managers.

JLE were selected as our primary Electrical Contractor for our Anaerobic Digestion Facility located in Reparoa. This is the first of its kind in New Zealand and thus came with numerous challenges both in the design, construction, and commissioning of the facility. JLE was selected due to their design capabilities, depth of technical expertise, proven experience in delivering similar projects, depth of personnel and the support network required for this type of project. This facility is the first of its kind in New Zealand and thus came with numerous challenges both in the design, construction, and commissioning of the facility. The project was unique with a significant amount of the equipment specific to the Biogas industry. The difference between success and failure often comes down to a single contractor willing to go above and beyond to achieve the objective. JLE are one of those rare contractors. With predicable consistency JLE were repeatedly able to accommodate the priorities of the project. They worked through technical and supply issues in a logical and analytical manor. They would make personnel available on short notice especially during the challenges of commissioning. They continuously provided support and when required would take phone calls out of hours and at the weekend. I found the personnel to be professional, knowledgeable, and informative. I would have no reservation in recommending JLE to other prospective clients.

“Long standing and reliable partners!” For several years we have relied on the external support from the Certified Electricians from JLE. The service of providing skilled labour by JLE is flexible and available when needed. Throughout several assembly and installation jobs on Port equipment, JLE Electricians were involved and supported to get the job done in a safe and reliable way. Looking forward to continuing working with JLE Electrical.

To JLE Management, my thanks and appreciation for Dave. He is and has been absolutely awesome. I really feel we get superior service from him. He is so obliging with my many ideas, and is happy to explain to me the merit of one idea over another. We are so happy to have our own sparky looking after us.


JLE have been our Electrical LV contractor for two recent substation new build projects. They are a professional and knowledgeable team with proven capability and experience in these industrial type projects. They have been able to achieve the timelines required with both their office and site teams accommodating the project requirements and providing the necessary resources throughout. They have a can do attitude and I look forward to working with them again on future projects.
