William Riddell | Pump Technician

Our Pump Technician William Riddell is particularly busy this time of year – putting in the hard yards to install pumps on farms throughout the region.

He has been part of the team for almost three years, and brings a fresh attitude and solutions to the job.

William completed his Electrical Service Technicians course through EIT while he worked and now holds the qualification.

He has found his calling, mainly installing new farm pumping systems and sometimes domestic water pumps.

“I was always going to do an apprenticeship but I really couldn’t handle the thought of crawling around in roof cavities on hot days,” he says.

“This way I have the best of both worlds – a trade, where I also get to be outdoors. I grew up on a farm in Central Hawke’s Bay and spent the first part of my career driving machinery rurally so this is a really good fit for me.” William’s brother, Sam, is also employed by Isaac’s Pumping and Electrical, and works in a Business Development Manager and Electrical Inspector role.
