What our clients say

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you, Brusco and his team – you guys were super professional, efficient and got the job done 100%.

We really appreciate the high level of service!


Waldi du Toit – Ginkgo Agency

I would like to put on record that we were most impressed by the work done by two of your employees. They arrived on time, were friendly, courteous and very efficient at the job on hand. I shall certainly have no hesitation recommending SDC to others who need an expert electrician.

SDC Electrical has shown to be a very reliable and experienced company who has been able to produce great work on fast track projects. As part of their service they also have electricians who are proactive and great problem solvers. You can expect neat work finished on time. We gladly recommend their service.

Andre Loock – Loock Architecture

For the past four years my real estate agency has used the services of SDC Electrical.

They offer brilliant service at competitive rates and their honesty and reliability is beyond reproach. I can recommend them with the utmost confidence.

Werner Burger Owner – Cape Splendour Homes

A friend referred me to SDC Electrical after I mentioned my disappointment with several other electricians. That was six years ago; I’ve used SDC’s service at three properties and I’ve never looked back. If they are not available immediately, I wait. 

I find them highly efficient and professional. Unlike other suppliers, I’ve never needed to call them back to sort out shoddy work. They are always on time and on the rare occasion that they were late (once in the entire 6 years) they called to let me know. They always take the time to explain the problem to me without being patronising because I’m a woman. They have respect for my home – I’ve had electricians who damaged my kitchen counter tops. No such issues with SDC.

And yes, they might be a bit expensive but it’s worth every rand since there is never any need for follow-up callouts. 

Marian van Wyk – Three Anchor Bay

I have had the pleasure of working with the SDC team for the past five years and I have only good things to say about the service and staff that work at SDC.

Our work

Being in the business for 30 years means you’ve just about seen or worked on every possible site out there. We are proud to have been a part of many large scale projects, from shopping malls and town squares to mansions all along the Atlantic Seaboard and across Cape Town however it’s the ‘small’ home and commercial renovations and construction projects that have kept our business thriving. Here are some of the homes and businesses we have had the pleasure working on in the last few years. We truly appreciate the loyalty our clients have afforded us and we ensure that every experience they have with SDC is problem free, well organised and affordable, which is why they keep coming back for our services!

About us

Back in 1988, Daron and Lauren Cock built a family home in Camps Bay. Daron, a qualified Master Electrician and Shane Cock, an Electrical Engineer decided to form SDC Electrical and in 1991 SDC became a licensed company and a member of the Electrical Contractors Association. We were officially a legitimate business!

We started off with construction projects and house maintenance and finished off construction work from contractors that went insolvent. Eventually, our main focus became domestic electrical installations.

In the Nineties, we branched into the electrical side of shop fitting with an anchor client, Spec Savers, which found us doing installations all over the country. We worked on many boutiques, shops and restaurants during the construction phase of Cavendish Square shopping mall as well as Mitchell’s Plain town centre and Century City/Canal Walk.

In 1996 we purchased a building, 86 New Church Street and from there we grew from a two man team to a staff of twenty-six by 2002.

Our main focus was directed towards the electrical service industry in domestic, industrial and commercial installations and issuing Certificates of Compliance.

In 2004 we sold our premises in the City Centre and moved the business back to Camps Bay where it originated from. Karyn Farrell, our aunt and experienced business owner took over the management of SDC and did a sterling job steering the business through the tough economic recession. In 2014 after 13 years at the helm, she decided it was high time for a new challenge.

The management was then entrusted to Jodi Cock, former assistant to Karyn Farrell and Brusco Cock, a qualified Electrical Artisan, bringing the idea of forming a family business full circle.

SDC has grown in leaps and bounds thanks to decades of hard work and maintaining an excellent reputation for outstanding workmanship and reliability within the Camps Bay community and Cape Town. In 2021 we expanded our services to Cape St Francis and St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape.

We have long-standing relations with some of the best builders, architects, interior designers and lighting specialists in South Africa and have had many incredible opportunities over the last three decades.

Thirty-two years on, SDC is still a family business at the core and we’re proud of this.
