“Wesco Electrics were engaged by Leightons to work on the Gateway project where they have been contracted to carry out the electrical works and civil trenching for the Great Eastern Highway expansion. The most important qualities of the service Wesco provide is their access to resources and the quality and skills of their staff.”
