Active Electric Ltd. began life as Sharp Electric, a company founded by George Sharp and his brother in the 1920's.
Sharp Electric operated until 1951 when George was fatally injured in a traffic accident. The business continued, but soon became insolvent. At this time, the employees - Sid Hinton, Cyril Ballinger and Art Blakey - purchased what remained of the business. They reopened as Active Electric in that same year.
In the early years, the company was involved in more than just electrical work. This included a general shop concerned with machining, milling, mechanical work, motor winding and refrigeration. The company also produced and delivered lead fishing sinkers to the local fishermen at Sewell's Marina.
Active Electric operated with a staff of six employees until 1967 when, sadly, both Cyril and Art passed away. Sid continued to operate the business which, in 1982, included his partner (and son) Dave Hinton. In 1987, Sid passed away and Dave assumed control of the company. In 1999, Eric Philbrook was taken on as a partner.
