Gray uses his wealth of knowledge of the industry to continually develop strategies and ideas that keep the company ahead of the competition and earn it’s position as an employer of choice.
“I have spent most of my working life in the Electrical Industry. At first an electrical apprentice, then I became a registered linesman around 1980.
In 1981 I went overseas working in firstly the transmission then distribution fields of the supply industry and picking up extra skills along the way then returning home in 1991. I then started back working with, at that time, the local Power Board in Martinborough.
Toward the end of 1999 and over a beer with a mate (Mike) we decided to form Poltech Ltd. Within the same conversation we decided our core activity would be Power Line Condition Assessment. And we have only grown since then. However because of the need to adapt and challenge boundaries we have created further activities that have enhanced our market position.
When I think about myself and what I have achieved over the years it doesn’t amount to much except that I’ve had bloody good time and still having it.
I have a wonderful partner and family that I spend most of my available time with. I never was much good at sport, but tried. At one stage my most favourite activity was flying micro lights but that hilarity stopped as plans changed. I do have a preference for a sunny day, a fishing rod and a few beers with mates.
The success of Poltech Power Works Ltd is the way to the Vision.”
