Connecting Christchurch to Quality Solutions

The Connection Company has provided Christchurch businesses and households with quality electrical solutions since 2007. We’ve proudly built our reputation across Canterbury, from Kaikoura to Timaru and everywhere inbetween.


Since day one, we’ve found most business owners are excellent at what they do. They know the ins and outs of their industry, but are often unsure how to set-up efficient and cost-effective electrical and data systems. There are very few businesses in Christchurch that can run without internet access, or would be unaffected if their computers went down. The Connection Company was founded on a commitment to provide quality solutions that protect your business and make it easier to run.


Managing Director Doug Swanson has over thirty years’ experience in the electrical and data industry. He’s seen solutions consistently change and upgrade over this time, and knows what to recommend so your business stays ahead of the curve.


Doug’s reputation and standing in Christchurch’s electrical industry have led many banks, government departments and large organisations to ask for The Connection Company by name. While we have the team and infrastructure in place to handle large projects like these, Doug founded The Connection Company to help Christchurch homeowners and small-to-medium Canterbury businesses, property managers and landlords.


The Christchurch Earthquakes in February 2011 posed major challenges to our city. Like many Canterbury businesses, our premises were severely damaged and we had to relocate. All the same, we continued helping with our city’s recovery.

It was a privilege working alongside the USAR team retrieving goods and systems from damaged buildings, and now helping those companies affected get re-established and back in business.
