Sparking growth: Significant increases in construction activity have propelled revenue

Operators in the Electricians industry install new electrical and communications equipment, and repair and maintain existing systems.

Improving economic conditions and technological advances also prompted downstream businesses and households to replace ageing electrical systems, which further propelled demand for services. However, difficulties associated with finding suitable employees and strong pricing pressures have somewhat restricted revenue more.
