Harpair Pty Ltd (Harpair) began in Townsville, QLD in December 1986 as Anadale Electrical an electrical contracting business concentrating on industrial, commercial and domestic electrical services. Solely owned and operated by Dale Harper a qualified tradesman since 1981.
In January 1998, the company moved to Brisbane where Dale Harper completed a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. At this time the company concentrated on consulting to Morrison Electrical Pty Ltd in the areas of management systems and operational issues for their lighting and air conditioning showroom.
In December 1999 Anadale Electrical changed its name to Impact Lighting Design Studio Brisbane Pty Ltd (Impact) and purchased Impact Lighting Design Studio from Morrison Electrical Pty Ltd. This business was located in Rocklea in a building also occupied by a large domestic building contractor. Impact positioned itself to provide lighting and air conditioning products to the new home market.
In May 2000 Impact was appointed the distributorship of Carrier and Toshiba air conditioning products for south-western Brisbane area. In February 2001 Impact added Solarhart solar hot water systems to its product offering.
Impact’s distubutorship area for Carrier and Toshiba products was increased to take in Ipswich and surrounding area in 2003 and was nominated as warranty agents.
Due to a market shift in 2005, the increase in demand for domestic air conditioning, the discission was make to divest Impacts interest in lighting and solar hot water and concentrate the domestic and commercial air conditioning market.
In May 2010 Impact lighting Design Studio Brisbane Pty Ltd changed its name to Harpair Pty Ltd due to the name not reflecting the direction the business was progressing. Harpair expanded by employing more staff and expanding the service vehicle fleet to re-establish its focus on electrical Installations, repairs and maintenance.
