About Vollans Electric
First, I’m not your typical electrician. I actually do this work because I love it, NOT because I have to.
You see, I was raised on a farm. From a young age, I was taught the meaning of responsibility, hard work, and discipline.
Most importantly, I was taught the joy of completing something and working with my hands.
I always had a fascination with electrical and embarked on my career journey, while I was still in high school, by taking the secondary school apprenticeship program in February of 2000.
In July of 2001, I was hired by Western Pacific Enterprises (WPE), a large national electrical contractor based out of Coquitlam BC.
I received excellent training with WPE including leadership, project management, and supervision training.
What I feel was the most important thing that I learned there was the value of good communication and customer service.
I worked on all different types of jobs with them; from small 1-hour service calls, to being foreman on large projects such as Kelowna’s 4-storey Interior Heart and Surgical Center.
By having the opportunity to work with such a broad range of projects, I feel that I’ve gained the ability to handle any problems that come my way.
In 2008, I earned my Field Safety Rep.certification and Contractor’s License which, at the time, I used mainly for side jobs.
I spent 16 years with WPE before finally embarking on my dream of venturing out on my own and running my own business full time.
Now, I love what I do and with all the experience I’ve gained along the way, I’ve developed the skills to do just about anything!
