Our story

John F Peirce migrated from England to Australia in the early 50s. An electrician by trade he believed Australia would provide his young family better opportunities and improved lifestyle.

John, Margaret, Deb, David and Andrew in front of their family home, the first ADJ headquarters.

Through hard work and determination his dreams were realised as his family grew and prospered. His sons David and Andrew followed in their father’s footsteps and entered the electrical trade. With a house full of electricians, John saw an opportunity to open a family business with core family values. So, on the 5th of December 1972 ADJ Electrical Contracting was founded.

Originally operating from the family home, the company provided employment to family, neighbours and extended community. And before long, this loyal workforce had built a reputation for providing quality workmanship. The company saw steady organic growth across a diverse number of electrical fields.
