The electrical industry is always reinventing itself, embracing the next generation of technologies, skills and techniques. Kaupp Electric Ltd. draws on more than seven decades of experience to offer a full range of electrical technical service skills to today's industry.
Myles Kaupp started the business in 1929 and carried on until 1939 when he became the Electric Superintendent at Houser Machine until April 1945.
Myles resumed the business again in February 1946 and formed a partnership with his son Frank on his return from the service. Myles' youngest son, Jack who has since retired, joined the business in 1956 when the company incorporated. When Myles passed away in 1957, his sons Frank and Jack took over the business. A third generation of the family, Frank's sons Danny and Peter, joined in partnership with the Company in 1972. They now have a combined total of more than 80 years experience invested in the family business.
