Director Glen Finegan has been in the electrical industry for 30 years as an Industrial Electrical Contractor. During his apprenticeship in the very early 1990’s he became a partner in Southport Industrial & Marine Electrics that then became The Electrical Workshop that Glen started and ran himself. By the late 1990’s Glen had a staff of 15 and they had a very successful & diversified business with 4 different departments. Auto electrical & Air conditioning, Electrical Contracting, Motor rewinding, Sales- Pumps- Motors, Generators etc. The business was sold in 2001 and Glen moved to Brisbane.
SAFE1 GROUP PTY LTD was then formed and this is where the group entered into the Miniature Circuit Breaker Industry. We spent 3 years developing our 1 pole RCBO and started selling into the Australian market in 2005 and have had a successful run over the last 15 years. We now enter the market with the recent release of our new JVM16 series of MCB and RCBO’s with the first integrated din rail mounted 4 pole RCBO for 3 phase circuits. “I was so frustrated trying to fit an RCD to a 3 phase circuit when the new laws came into effect some years back, so we developed our own. One of our 4 pole RCBO’s has been on test for the last 3 years in an abattoir in a fairly harsh environment without a problem”. We realized before we started this business in such a competitive market that for us to be successful it wasn’t going to be just about the price we needed to have a quality product (10kA) with innovative nice design and also price competitive. We strive for quality and service to all of our customers and we invite you to give us a try.
Glen has also developed a polarity monitoring module that detects correct polarity primarily in the marine industry since 2005 the business name is Surepower Solutions.
