Australia’s Leading Privately Owned Electrical and Communications Contractor


Capability statement

Stowe celebrated 100 years of continual service excellence in September 2010.

The company’s origins date back to the advent of the electricity industry in Australia when Francis Bell and George T Stowe incorporated the company in 1910. The company was purchased by two senior foremen Bert Madson and Sam Bogen in 1934.

Today Stowe Australia is Australia’s leading privately owned electrical and communications contracting organisation with forecast annual revenues over $500mil and currently employing over 1,500 people.

The ownership of Stowe Australia has been retained through three generations (over 85 years) of the Madson Family with Bert Madson taking ownership of Stowe in 1934 and then passing ownership to his son David Madson. David’s son, Chris Madson is the current Stowe managing director.

Underpinning and driving the success of the company over this time are two fundamental business objectives:

“To build and maintain a satisfied customer base through superior quality service with fair dealings based on trust and respect.”

“To create long term relationships with customers, suppliers and most importantly its employees.”
