Antenna Wizards started in 1992 when UHF transmissions commenced in the Hunter area. By 2006 the business had carried out over 30,000 TV Antenna, Telephone and Electrical installations and employed a team of 14 people, with 5 service vehicles on the road in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Maitland.
In 2006 Antenna Wizards began restructuring as a co-operative of smaller, individually owned businesses. The Antenna Wizards Group now consists of Antenna Wizards (Newcastle), Antenna Wizards (Lake Macquarie), Antenna Wizards (Maitland) and Newcastle Electrical Wizards. It was a major change in the way we did business, but one which we believe has allowed us to deliver a better and more consistent level of service to our customers. All of the new owners are ex-employees.
