Welcome to Matai Betta Electrical!

A little bit about who we are and our history

   I’m Sue Marsh and alongside my husband Philip, we’re the proud owner operators of Matai Electrical / Betta Electrical.  We’re a generational family  business. My grandfather, Hector Julian, founded the business  back in 1946 and my Father, Pat Julian,  went to work as an apprentice before  purchasing  the business in 1974, with Hec retiring in 1976 to head       overseas for a well deserved holiday. In 2010 the business was purchased  by  Philip and I and renamed Matai  Electrical - more to  do  with  where  we’re  located than the tree!         The business has evolved quite a bit over the years, and not only are we retailers, but offer full contracting, servicing, and repair work.


Keeping it in the family

So delighted that our youngest son Adam has decided to join us as an electrical apprentice,  and with  Adam  now  a  Dad himself, who knows what  the future will hold?  Perhaps we   will reach 5 generations as a family business. We also run a Hammer Hardware, a NZ Post and Kiwibank Franchise,  with  Ravensdown  Urea Silos on site,  which  means  we have a large range of products and services to support the Inglewood area.  Our eldest son, Simon,   also  works  with us at  Hammer, so  we  definitely  are a  fully  fledged  family  business.     This makes for a very busy retail environment, and lots of lovely customers, some of whom are 3rd generation customers. A lot of our loyal customers come in for a hammer and end up buying a new Fridge!  We also stock a great range of small appliances. You could say                                                                      we’re your one-stop-shop!

Community connection.

You Our community and our loyal customers are integral to our success which is why giving back to the community is high on our priority list. We’re a sponsor for the Inglewood Croquet Club, and we regularly support local community events and sports clubs who need the assistance. We’re all about promoting 'shop local’ - this is integral for a town of our size and for the continuity of sales and service for all the local businesses.use this widget to input text into the page.
