The gala dinner took place at the Westin hotel in Sydney on Tuesday July 21st and was a great evening for all who attended. Mel, Glenco’s Purchasing Officer, expressed how it was encouraging and motivating to see how far Glenco has come from when we were first starting out and also to hear how other finalists shared similar challenges and also overcame them. Glenco Installation Manager Matt affirmed, “It was great to hear people telling their stories”. Glenco’s story began all the way back in 1988. Here’s what Telstra had to say about Glenco:
GLENCO ELECTRICAL SERVICES – New South Wales Medium Business Award
Glenn Rosen started his electrical business out of the back of a station wagon in 1988 with just $2,000. With six years’ experience as an electrician, he knocked on doors again and again, until eventually he got his first customer. Glenn’s brother Brad Rosen joined the business as co-owner in 1999. Glenn and Brad, both with elite sporting backgrounds, run Glenco Electrical Services together. Glenco Electrical Services prides itself on being able to provide a complete solution for both the property management and strata industries, as well as domestic and commercial work throughout the Sydney metropolitan area. With 85 per cent of their business coming from referrals, they provide a comprehensive list of services to their clients from security and alarm installation to electrical work both within the property as well as the external lines from the street to the building.
New employees go through a five day induction process. We tell them ‘you join our team, you join our family’. Glenn Rosen, Founder and Co-Owner

As we continue to move from strength to strength, being finalists in the Telstra Business Awards has cemented Glenco’s place as one of the best Sydney electricians in the industry. It has been amazing to have our hard work recognised, and we hope to continue to grow and improve even more so over the next year, and beyond.
