The SDC Electrical business story spans thirty-five years and began from humble beginnings, as all family businesses do.
In 1988, Daron and Lauren Cock built a family home in Camps Bay. Daron, a qualified Master Electrician, and his brother Shane Cock, an Electrical Engineer, formed SDC Electrical. In 1991 SDC became a licensed company and a member of the Electrical Contractors Association. We were officially a legitimate business!
We started with electrical home maintenance and domestic installations and completed construction work from contractors that went insolvent.
In the Nineties, we branched into shop fitting with an anchor client, Spec Savers, which found us doing installations across South Africa. We worked on many boutiques, stores, and restaurants during the construction of the Cavendish Square shopping mall in Claremont, Mitchell’s Plain town centre and Canal Walk in Century City.
By the 2000s, we had grown from a team of two to a staff of twenty-six! Our services expanded to include domestic, industrial, and commercial installations and issuing compliance certificates.
Fast forward a decade, a lot of hard graft, ups and downs. In 2014, the business management was entrusted to siblings Jodi and Brusco Cock, bringing the idea of forming a family business full circle.
SDC has continued to thrive thanks to a legacy of hard work, maintaining an excellent reputation for outstanding workmanship and reliability within our community and the construction industry.
We have long-standing relations with the best builders, architects, interior designers, and lighting specialists in South Africa.
In 2021 we took a leap of faith and expanded our electrical services to Cape St Francis and St Francis Bay, ‘our other home’ in the Eastern Cape.
Today SDC Electrical remains a family business at its core and within its values, and we’re proud of this.
