Colwin Electrical Group got its start in 1990 with current partners, Darren Willms and John Parolin when they bought Willms Electric from Darren’s father.  

John and Darren expanded on the existing client base until they bought Colwin Electrical Group, in 1999.  Bringing many of the key Willms Electric employees with them, the new Colwin Electrical Group began to implement complex and progressive electrical designs for large-scale commercial projects. Today, still headed by Darren and John, Colwin Electrical Group maintains an established and loyal client base throughout B.C.’s Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island as well as western Alberta.

In 2010, Darren and John acquired Colwin Design, a custom Millwork shop. With this new acquisition the partners now offer an extended line of millwork design and services to their clients.
