We believe at Universal Electro Tech that we have a responsibility to support the community, which extends beyond our contractual electrical work with our clients in Australia. At Universal Electro Tech, we carry out pro bono electrical work and charitable financial aid in support of homelessness, disability, youth, suicide prevention and anything really, we feel is a worthy cause. Universal Electro Tech want to be part of making a positive impact both internally within our working environment and externally in our community.
