About Sparky Nearby

Your Local Sydney Electricians

Back in the early 2000s, Tom (Managing Director) completed his apprenticeship with a high-end residential construction company called Panda Electrical. After the GFC hit in 2009 and construction jobs started to dry up, Tom took a job with a small but long-established electrical maintenance company called Bruce Scott & Co. This company was working in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, and was started back in 1972 by Bruce Scott.

In all that time Bruce came to know every trick in the book concerning residential and commercial electrical work. These skills were dutifully passed onto the Tom during his 7 years working there.

Bruce eventually decided it was time to hand over the reins to Tom, and under new management the company was renamed MetElec. Bruce has stayed on in an advisory role and is still found solving electrical problems in Sydney’s East.

Since coming under Tom’s management, the company has grown to 5 members and now serves the whole of Sydney with the same commitment to customer service, technical knowledge, and great prices.

In December 2018 the decision was made to change the company name from MetElec to ‘Spark Nearby’.
