About The Smart Sparks Group

The Smart Sparks group of companies was formed around a few simple beliefs:

  1. Look beyond the quick fix to deliver long-term solutions.
  2. High value service shouldn’t cost the earth to the client.
  3. Commitment to ongoing innovation and up-skilling makes providing 1 and 2 that much easier.

Innovative, results-oriented service

When Smart Sparks started in 2004 our aim was to provide a smarter way of helping clients with their electrical requirements. Our team has around 20 full time employees across all divisions:


Working with the other companies in the group, Smart Sparks Commercial can deliver the complete range of products and services required from large clients. With a systematic and innovative approach the company can deliver increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This unremitting professionalism and expertise has seen the Commercial team work on some the region’s most high profile projects.


Smart Sparks provides high quality electrical services in homes throughout the Canterbury region. We have years of electrical and project management experience under our belt. We employ a carefully selected team, provide prompt and professional service and take pride in our work. Their passion is offering a service that exceeds expectations.


In 2008, after four years as an integrated part of Smart Sparks Electrical, the Servicing department evolved into a full-scale company. With an increased demand and a burgeoning reputation for excellent results, Smart Sparks Servicing can now dedicate greater resources to meet the intricate needs of their growing client base. Headed by Tim Malone, the team prides itself on a responsive, intuitive and inventive approach to system maintenance.

Our Values:


We don’t take our commitments lightly. We will do everything within our power to meet expectations. We own up to and learn from our mistakes. We do the right thing always.


Excellence is a habit not a goal. We welcome a challenge with enthusiasm and go above and beyond the call of duty because that’s who we are.


We question conventional wisdom and challenge the status quo. If there is a better way, we’ll find it. We are excited by ingenuity and thrilled to try something new.


We invest in ourselves and in one another not just to grow as an organisation but also as individuals. Through personal development and continuous improvement we enrich our lives and are better prepared to tackle opportunities as they arise.


We’re all human. Everyone we work with experiences the same hopes and fears. Our compassion is what allows us to understand where we’re needed and what we can do to help.

What is thermal imaging?

Thermal imaging is an insurance requirement, it is also a way of completing building maintenance without shut-down. Thermal imaging uses infrared thermography,  allowing us to see these invisible thermal signatures of impending damage before the damage occurs. When current flows through an electric circuit, part of the electrical energy is converted into heat energy - however sometimes unwanted heat is generated that results in costly damage or shut downs.

Can I buy electrical parts from you?

Yes, contact us to find out more.

For the most common environments, we recommend the following frequencies:

  • 3 months - building, construction and demolition
  • 6 months - factories, warehouses and production
  • 12 months - an environment where the equipment/supply cord is prone to flexing or open to abuse
  • 5 years - office environment(s) where the equipment/supply cord is NOT prone to flexing or open abuse
