As a way to help out their friends with electrical service needs, Dave Gregoire and Syd Fife started up F & G Electrical in 2015.
Word quickly spread about the experienced electricians, and they realized there were more people that needed their help. Gregoire and Fife started their business on a part-time basis, and in 2018, Gregoire began working full time at F & G Electrical.
F & G Electrical primarily offers residential services, including planning, designing, and installation of new construction and renovations, maintenance work, troubleshooting, and small commercial work. Together, Fife and Gregoire have more than 20 years combined experience with industrial electrical as well.
A love for the mountain life lead Gregoire and Fife to Golden. Fife spent a decade working on new construction in Calgary, and was ready for a slower lifestyle. He took on the lead electrician role at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and made the move to Golden in 2012.
Fife continues to work at Kicking Horse full time, while completing inspections for F & G Electrical on a part-time basis.
Getting his start in the electrical industry in 2004, Fife became a licenced field safety representative in 2014 and became a master electrician in 2014.
Golden was also the perfect location for Gregoire, who has always had a love for the mountains and outdoor activities, and moved here in 2013.
Gregoire became a Red Seal electrician in 2018, and both attend continuing education courses offered through Technical Safe BC.
F & G prides themselves in offering fast, reliable and friendly service. They are a small company that is also very personable.
The best parts of owning their own business and operating F & G Electrical in Golden are being able to play where they work, and contributing to the community. Both say meeting new people and working at different sites in the area are highlights of the job.
