PSG was formed in 2006 with the primary objective of building a national, high quality electrical and communications contracting solution for large scale, complex construction projects, and effective operational and essential asset monitoring and maintenance services across national accounts Australia-wide. To achieve this objective, PSG acquired seven of Australia’s largest, most experienced and entrepreneurial electrical contracting companies who each were industry leaders within their chosen fields.
PSG Victoria, formerly Elecraft (joined Group in February 2006)
Established in Victoria in 1976, Elecraft provided a diverse range of services including design and construction of complex infrastructure projects, security, energy efficiency, building automation solutions and switchboard design and manufacture.

PSG New South Wales, formerly KRS Electrical Services (joined Group in Oct. 2009)
Established in NSW in 1968 and subsequently branching into the markets of Queensland and South Australia, KRS Electrical Services were market leaders in the roll out of national retail and supermarket construction asset maintenance services. PSG has since leveraged the capabilities of this business, increasing the number of national key accounts in this area.
