Following in his fathers footsteps, Joshua began his electrical career while still in high school. Working with Sirrom Wiring on several projects through the summer of 2019, Josh accepted an opportunity to work towards his first year of apprenticeship through the school work experience program with another local company. Due to the COVI-19 pandemic, Josh was laid off and returned to work with Sirrom Wiring before completing his certification in the fall.

Starting before he graduated high school, Matthew has been working with contractors for over 25 years to provide power to much of the local area. Upon receiving his Master Electrician certification in 2002, Matt has honed his skills to be an expert in many capacities of electrical services. After working in residential and commercial electrical for 17 years, Matthew decided to take on a new challenge and accepted employment in the coal industry with the Paintearth Mine in 2013.
In November 2015, the Alberta Government committed to a phase out of all coal-based power plants with their Climate Leadership Plan. This included the Battle River Generating Station which was supplied by the Paintearth Mine where Matthew was currently employed. This meant that in time, he would be unemployed at no fault of his own.
The Light Bulb Moment
Having worked with many of the area contractors in the past, Matthew was continually being asked if he was interested in utilizing his expertise with this project or that one. Working shift work at the mine meant Matthew had the opportunity to work a few days each week while maintaining a steady paycheck. This meant more could put more back into the business and grow it while he worked to phase out the mine.
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." -Thomas Edison
Discussing with a few local contractors the projects they had for him, Matthew worked steadily for the first few months while he and his wife Donna created a business plan. Matthew not only wanted to return to residential and commercial electrical, he wanted to satisfy the needs of his customers while keeping their families and businesses safe. As a business, they wanted to not only meet the expectations of their customers, but exceed them as that is what they would expect. And they wanted to offer their customers options. Whether they wanted standard electrical services or the new options of green energy, the choice was up to the customer and Matthew wanted to be able to service every need. Above all, they wanted to offer top of the line service making sure the customer came first and was comfortable with the fact that they had hired the right person for the job.
What’s in a name?
The name Sirrom attracts benevolence, open-mindedness and proactivity. Perceiving the expectations of others in the work place is the main life lesson grasped by people named Sirrom.
After many attempts of trying to find the right name for their new business that portrayed the how and why they started their business, Matthew and Donna were about to give up when the idea to flip their name backwards came to mind. After looking up the meaning of the name, they were sold and Sirrom Wiring and Electrical Services Ltd. was chosen. In March of 2016 with the support of their families, it became official as an Alberta Corporation and the adventure began.
The Next Chapter
With the final stages of the phase out of the Paintearth Mine still being completed, Matthew and Donna are working harder than ever to take their success from a part time venture to a full time business. They continue to earn the trust and respect from their customers through superior service, skilled workmanship and competitive pricing. Proud to say that the majority of their customers are repeat customers, many of which have found them by word of mouth; Matthew and Donna look forward to the next chapter in the near future.
