"It’s a privilege to be part of an action-packed event that will demonstrate to our community the important work carried out by our lines team"
Electra Trustee Chair Sharon Crosbie
Electra are New Zealand’s ninth-largest lines company based in the Kāpiti-Horowhenua region.
Chief Executive Neil Simmonds says: "...supporting the event was an easy decision for Electra to make - as the event celebrates excellence in the lines industry, and promotes to the community some of the difficult tasks carried out in all weather, and sometimes under great pressure...
The icing on the cake was that the event coincides with Electra celebrating its 100-year anniversary."
