In 1974 Doug and Marlene Matters loaded up the family including 4 young kids into the family Holden, and drove from South Australia to Queensland in search of an ideal place to bring up the family. Doug and Marlene settled on Noosa with its beautiful beaches and hinterland, and set up Doug Matters Electrical, starting the business initially out of his home in Tewantin, before moving the business into Rene St, Noosaville.
In 1988 Doug sold the business to Ross and Suzette Fisher, Kiwis who had settled in Noosa for the lifestyle and the surf lifesaving community. The business changed name to Noosa Universal Electric, and eventually moved out of the Rene Street premises into newly constructed premises in the current location at 4 Venture Drive Noosaville in 1995.
Doug Matters son, Paul who completed his apprenticeship with Doug, and worked with Ross purchased the business in 2000, and subsequently changed the name to Paul Matters Electrical.
After 17 years of ownership, Paul and Kylie made the decision to sell Paul Matters Electrical. In January 2018, the business changed hands being purchased by Andrew and Andrea Maclaren. Andrew and Andrea were attracted to the business due to the deep community connection, and outstanding reputation, and look forward to the opportunity to further improve and develop the service culture further.
So the journey continues…
