Introducing Voltaic Auto Electrical & Air Conditioning

Two things strike you very quickly when you first meet Joshua Doutch and Tara Halliday of Voltaic Auto Electrical and Air Conditioning.

The first, they are ‘switched on’ (pun intended) – intelligent, logical and disciplined.

The second, they are fully invested in the well-being of their team members and understand how they have a role to play in their employee’s sense of satisfaction and happiness.

They also know that how well they look after their team will go a long way to determine their business’ success.

Where it All Began

Josh and Tara, who are both Kalgoorlie born and bred, commenced Voltaic in 2017 after enjoying 10 years as a couple, and also as work colleagues.

Josh considers himself to have the vision for what Voltaic has and will become, while Tara, she implements and makes it all happen.

Josh says “I have been very lucky to experience what this industry has to offer including financial rewards, unique experiences and a genuine sense of making a contribution. So I wanted to give other people the same rewarding opportunity, to teach what I have learned and to give back to the industry.”

Early Success

Within just a few months of opening their doors, from a first day with no clients and a phone that didn’t yet ring, they took on their first apprentice.

From there they haven’t looked back, growing the team to 15 in under three years.

Their success to date already sees them amongst the top 10% of auto electricians in Australia. Now Josh’s vision is to be number one.

He has set himself a target of five years to reach that goal and we have no doubt he has what it takes to achieve it. (Editor: talk about thinking big, Josh is testament to the idea we at CapitalQ so strongly subscribe to that “the goal dictates the behaviour”.)

There are two primary elements to Voltaic’s business.

Outside of Business

Josh is a life-long martial artist.

By the time you read this he will have just completed his latest training camp in South Africa.

And while Tara is not a martial artist herself, she is an avid participant in the fitness side of the sport.
