Mott Electric moves to Burnaby's Big Bend, expanded facility
Mott Electric GP is moving to bigger digs in Burnaby, the third major move for the 82-year-old company.
Established by William Mott in 1930, the company is one of the oldest electrical contracting companies in the Lower Mainland. So old, one of its first major projects was installing the lighting for the Pattullo Bridge in New Westminster.
It has been a contractor for other major projects in the region, including the Cassiar Connector and Capilano Pumphouse and Substation, and is currently working on the Ruskin Dam and Generating Station, the Telus Garden and Salt residential developments, Metrotower III office tower, and the Marine Gateway commercial and residential project. That's in addition to providing electrical services to smaller customers.
Mott Electric's first move was in 1948, when it moved to 1111 Royal Avenue in New Westminster. Then in 1969, it built a new facility at 7008 14th Ave. in Burnaby.
Now, 40 years later, it's finally outgrown that space. Dan Mott, current president and third generation of the family to run the business, has moved the company to 4599 Tillicum in Burnaby's Big Bend to accommodate its continuing growth, the company said in a press release.
